U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he wants  a “full investigation” into the circumstances that led to the death of financier Jeffrey Epstein at a federal detention facility in New York City while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.

“Basically what we’re saying is we want an investigation. I want a full investigation, and that’s what I absolutely am demanding. That’s what our attorney general, our great attorney general is doing. He’s doing a full investigation,” Trump told reporters in New Jersey.

Trump made the comments after U.S. Attorney General William Barr earlier vowed to carry on the Epstein investigation even after the financier’s death and ordered the Justice Department’s inspector general to look into the matter.
