Donald Trump is all smiles as he poses with Jeffrey Epstein's alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell at a hookers and pimps-themed party in a never-before-seen photo obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The current President of the United States can be seen holding Maxwell and future First Lady Melania by their waists at supermodel Heidi Klum's Halloween party in October 2000.
Maxwell, now 57, attended the star-studded event in a bleach blonde wig, leopard print jacket and gold leather pants and was accompanied by her close friend Prince Andrew.

The source told DailyMail.com: 'As soon as Prince Andrew came into the party it was pandemonium because no one expected to see him there.
'A hookers party for Halloween is not where you'd expect to see one of the Queen's sons. No one could believe he was there.
'Prince Andrew was with Ghislaine and they were greeted by Heidi Klum.
'While Andrew was chatting with Heidi, Ghislaine went over to speak with Donald Trump.
'He had only recently started going out with Melania at that time.
'Donald and Ghislaine were chatting for about 15 or 20 minutes. It seemed clear they already knew each other.
'Then Heidi approached and said hello to Donald and Melania and shortly after that Ghislaine and Prince Andrew left to go to Lotus nightclub.
'I saw Andrew was with this lady but it seemed weird because she wasn't that good looking and she was older than most women he would usually party with.
'Nobody really knew who she was or made a big deal out of it at the time. The focus was on Prince Andrew that night.
'Andrew also said hello to Donald, they were friends and any time Donald arrived at a party he made sure to say hello to every single celebrity. Always.'

Maxwell is currently in hiding following claims that she recruited underage girls for Epstein to abuse.
DailyMail.com revealed in August that Maxwell had been hiding out in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, with her then-tech CEO lover Scott Borgerson.
She had been living with him at his secluded oceanfront property at the end of a long private road and had been loath to leave the $3 million mansion.
Meanwhile, Prince Andrew was forced to step aside from royal duties following a disastrous BBC interview last month in which he admitted he still does not regret his friendship with Epstein.
It was revealed this week that the royal has kept in constant contact with Maxwell, even inviting her to Buckingham Palace in June, just a month before Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges.
But a report in the Sun, claimed the two have been in touch by phone and email throughout the scandal over the prince's links to the convicted sex offender.
The insider claimed there is an 'unswerving loyalty' between the pair, who both deny any wrongdoing despite their close relationships with Epstein.

In 2002, not long after he was pictured alongside Maxwell, Trump described Epstein as a 'terrific guy' who liked women 'on the younger side'.
But a month before the financier's death in a New York jail cell in August, Trump had changed his tune.
He told reporters in the Oval Office: 'I had a falling out with him. I haven't spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you.'
A video tape from 1992 shows Trump at a private party with Epstein, who was a guest of Trump's at Mar-a-Lago in November of that year and was surrounded by a group of models and cheerleaders.
It was one of Trump's final private parties before the financially-strapped real estate scion turned his residence into a members-only club.
Epstein brought his then-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell along for the outing, years before she would use the club as a hunting ground for underage girls according to court documents.
