US President Donald Trump has become a target of a new online ad launched by a group called "Republican Voters Against Trump", that slams him over a remark he made this week regarding Ghislaine Maxwell, former associate of the late Jeffrey Epstein, disgraced financier and convicted sex offender.
"I just wish her well, frankly", the US president said during a news conference on 21 July, when asked about Maxwell.
"You wish her well? No sympathy for Maxwell’s victims? No sympathy for young girls who were molested by powerful people?" the ad's narrator inquires.
"I guess this shouldn’t be a surprise", the narrator then says as the ad shows footage of Trump and Epstein conversing.
Many social media users praised the ad and criticized Trump over his statement.

He is such a sorry excuse for a human, really makes me physically ill to hear him say that.— Boilerjoe99 (@boilerjoe99) July 22, 2020
Some even suggested that Ghislaine Maxwell has got "the goods" on a certain someone.

And a number of people mused about what might befall Maxwell in the future.
I am putting odds on Ghislaine being found dead under suspicious circumstances or pardoned of all crimes before 2021— Emily Kralj (@em_kat30) July 22, 2020
She's going to be murdered in prison.— Joan Greene (@joangreeneaz) July 23, 2020
As The Hill points out, earlier this month, the "Republican Voters Against Trump" launched another ad critical of Trump, calling upon Christian voters to "resist being used to justify things that Jesus would never justify."
