Former President Donald Trump took at least seven trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private plane — far more than was previously known, according to newly released flight logs.

Trump was one of several high-profile passengers on the sex-predator financier’s private jet. The 118 pages of flight logs, released Monday, also list nine trips by former President Bill Clinton, as well as flights taken by lawyer Alan Dershowitz, former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell and Prince Andrew.

Only one of Trump’s trips was previously known, reported the Miami Herald, which first reported on the logs entered into evidence in Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial.

The logs show Trump taking four trips in 1993, and one in 1994, 1995 and 1997; the 1997 trip was previously disclosed in earlier documents, the Herald reported.

Trump’s name appears in the 1994 flight logs alongside the names Marla, Tiffany and a nanny — believed to be a reference to his then-wife Marla Maples and then-infant daughter Tiffany.

In 1995, he flew with his son Eric, who was not yet 2 years old, the logs show.

The logs also show nine trips by Clinton on Epstein’s jet, though previously disclosed flight logs have shown that he was a frequent passenger on the Lolita Express.

Neither Trump nor Clinton have been linked to any of Epstein’s sex-trafficking crimes.

In 2020, Trump said of Maxwell that “I wish her well” after she was charged with procuring girls for Epstein, a convicted sex offender who killed himself in federal jail while awaiting trial on new sex trafficking charges.

Prosecutors described the British socialite as Epstein’s “right hand” in closing arguments to a Manhattan federal court jury Monday.

“Maxwell was a sophisticated predator who knew exactly what she was doing,” Assistant Manhattan U.S. Attorney Alison Moe said. “She caused deep and lasting damage to young girls.”

If found guilty of all charges against her, Maxwell, 59, could spend the rest of her life in prison.
