On Tuesday, President Donald Trump hailed the Harvey Weinstein conviction as a "great thing" for women, and also took a shot at Democrats for their close ties to the movie mogul.
The president has been traveling for meetings during his state visit to India, so he said he doesn't know "too much about the case." However, he said, "I think that from the standpoint of women, it was a great thing. It was a great victory and sends a very strong message."
"He was a person I didn't like," Trump told reporters, "The people that liked him were the Democrats. Michelle Obama loved him. Loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him."
"Will the Democrats be asking for that money back? Because he gave a lot of money to the Democrats," he asked.
The former Hollywood mogul was found guilty a day earlier on two of five counts in his New York trial, including a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. Weinstein, 67, faces up to four years in prison on the rape charge, and between 5 and 25 years for the criminal sexual act charge. He was acquitted on the most serious charges against him.
Clinton's political connection to Weinstein, a major Democratic donor, came under intense scrutiny in 2017, when allegations of sexual misconduct by the then-Hollywood mega-producer came to light in a pair of exposés in The New Yorker and The New York Times. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, later pledged to donate campaign contributions from Weinstein to charity.
In a Tuesday interview with Variety, Clinton said of the Weinstein verdict that "it was time for an accounting and the jury clearly found that."
Clinton also attempted to claim that she had no idea about the accusations of sexual assault and rape. In the past she praised him as a wonderful man. I don't believe that she didn't know.
"I've known Harvey Weinstein for a long time. I'm not at all surprised to see it," Trump told reporters two years ago.
