Acosta has been 'excellent': Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump backed Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on Tuesday but said he would look into how Acosta handled financier Jeffrey Epstein's case during his tenure as a U.S. prosecutor in Florida.

Trump said he was "not a fan" of Epstein, despite calling him a "terrific guy" in 2002.

Acosta has been 'excellent': Trump

President Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday that embattled Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta has "been just an excellent secretary of labor.

He's done a fantastic job," Trump also said he felt badly for Acosta, whose plea deal with Epstein in 2008 over sexual crimes has now drawn renewed scrutiny.
