Trump: I '100 percent' believe Jordan over claims he knew of Ohio State abuse

Feb 2007
In my mind
Seems a rather foolish thing for the president to say.

Perhaps he is saying simply because Jordan is a huge Trump cheerleader. Will this come back to bite the president in the ass if it turns out Jordan turned a blind eye to sexual abuse?

I can't imagine the president would ever care if it did.

President Trump said Thursday that he “100 percent” believes Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-Ohio) denial of allegations that he knew of sexual abuse taking place on the Ohio State University wrestling team while he served as assistant coach.

“I don’t believe them at all. I believe him,” Trump told reporters of the claims against Jordan. “Jim Jordan is one of the most outstanding people I’ve met since I’ve been in Washington. I believe him 100 percent. No question in my mind.”

Trump's backing of Jordan came as a fourth former Buckeye wrestler told NBC News that Jordan knew the team's doctor was sexually abusing student athletes, but failed to do anything to stop it.
