(Politico) The Clinton Presidential Library has released nearly two dozen photos of Donald Trump socializing with President Bill Clinton — including one that shows the two men with their arms around Trump's then-girlfriend, Melania, and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kylie Bax — images from a collection that underscores just how chummy Trump once was with the president and his wife Hillary.
The 22 pictures were taken by official White House photographers in June 2000 during a visit the president paid to Trump Tower in New York City for a political fundraiser, and in September 2000, during the U.S. Open tournament in Flushing Meadows, New York.
Some of the photos taken in a private box at the tennis tournament appear to reflect a jovial mood. Trump's future wife, Melania, and Bax — clad in a baby blue and white Playboy bunny T-shirt — are laughing in one image, while in others Bill Clinton smiled broadly as the real estate mogul seemed to be cracking jokes.
