Jeffrey Epstein told cellmates about his private jet trips with Donald Trump and spoke of Bill Clinton’s days as a ‘lothario’, according to a new book. 

The disgraced financier, who killed himself at age 66 in August 2019 at a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, is also said to have told fellow inmates in the days before his prison death he was ‘motivated by p****’. 

Excerpts of The Spider, by author Barry Levine, out Tuesday and first reported by The Sun are said to include details of conversations between Epstein and his two prison confidantes. 

The book also looks at whether his death was initially misreported as a ‘poss arrest’ to prevent media attention. DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Trump, Clinton and the Metropolitan Correctional Center for comment. 

William ‘Dollar Bill’ Mersey spent hours with Epstein inside New York’s notorious Metropolitan Correctional Center in his role as an ‘inmate companion’ while the multimillionaire was on suicide watch.

He served a year at MCC in lower Manhattan after pleading guilty to federal tax evasion for under reporting income from his escort advertising agency. He was released in early November last year. 

Mersey had told DailyMail.com in December of last year how Epstein did not betray any of his influential friends or show remorse. 

But he added: ‘He didn’t brag about his lifestyle but Epstein knew everybody that matters, so I did ask him one time, “Jeffrey, give me one anecdote that’s emblematic of the essence of Donald Trump”.

‘Epstein thought about it and then said, ”Donald and I are flying in my private jet to Florida and I have a French girl with me. Donald says to me, why don’t we land in Atlantic City so I can show your friend my casino?

‘[Epstein] said, “I’m not landing in Atlantic City, it’s all white trash down there.” So the French girl goes, “what does white trash mean? I don’t understand.” And Trump says, ”It’s me without money.”’

Trump and Epstein reportedly fell out around 2004, in a dispute over a property purchase. 

The president has since sought to distance himself from Epstein and downplay his relationship with the pedophile. One month before Epstein died in a New York jail cell in August last year, Trump said he was ‘not a fan’.

‘I had a falling out with him. I haven’t spoken to him in 15 years,’ Trump said at a White House press conference. ‘I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you.’ 

Mersey had signed up as an ‘inmate companion’ – an MCC program where prisoners complete four hours of training then take shifts around the clock to observe fellow inmates on suicide watch, for which they are paid as little as 12 cents an hour.

It was his work with the suicide program that led Mersey to become one of the few people who had direct contact with Epstein while he was in prison, apart from the financier’s lawyers and prison staff.

Mersey also said Epstein told him ‘of Bill Clinton’s days as a lothario’ but said the former president ‘can’t do anything like that now because he’s had a couple of heart surgeries’. 

In December, Mersey claimed Epstein launched into an unsolicited tale about Clinton.

He said: ‘[Epstein] said he was walking down the street in a Chinese city with him and a really beautiful Asian girl walked by. [Clinton] turned to him and said, ”That woman makes my d*** harder than Chinese arithmetic’.”

Flight manifest records for Epstein’s private plane, dubbed the Lolita Express, show Clinton flew with Epstein to Hong Kong on January 22, 2002, then Shenzhen, China on January 23, then left the same day for Singapore, went to Bangkok on January 25 and then traveled to Brunei later in the day on January 25.

Clinton flew with Epstein on his private plane again in 2003, picking up Clinton in Oslo and heading to Russia on November 5, then going to Hong Kong on November 6, then onwards to Chengdu, China on November 9 and later in the day going to Beijing.

Mersey asked Epstein if Clinton liked young girls and Epstein replied, ‘No, he liked them mature and he can’t do anything now anyway, too many heart operations. His philandering days are over.’ 

Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Ureña, has previously said: ‘President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York.

‘In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation. Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip.

‘He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.’

Another prisoner, Michael ‘Miles’ Tisdale, said Epstein defended his actions by arguing the underage girls were actually ‘fifteen, sixteen, seventeen and eighteen years old – not eight or nine years old’. 

Epstein is also said to have told him ‘p***y’ motivated him. 

And on currency trading Tisdale said Epstein told him: ‘You know how p***y acts, how her mood will be next month and maybe in two months – that’s the same way to look at currency.’ 

Epstein was arrested on July 6 2019 when his private plane landed in New Jersey after arriving from Paris. He pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking dozens of underage girls, some as young as 14, between 2002 and 2005. He faced up to 45 years in jail if found guilty.

On July 23, days after he was denied bail by a federal judge, he was believed to have attempted suicide after being found in his cell, semi-conscious, with marks on his neck while in 9 South, a special housing unit, known as the ‘shu’ or the ‘hole’.

The book also looks at Epstein's relationship with British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, pictured together in 1995. Maxwell, 58, has pleaded not guilty to charges she helped Epstein recruit and groom underage girls as young as 14 years old to engage in illegal sexual acts in the mid-1990s, and not guilty to perjury for having denied involvement under oath

Following his suicide attempt, Epstein was moved to a small suicide-watch unit of four cells.
