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.

Bax, described as Trump’s ex-girlfriend in press accounts from mid-2000, …  said she recalled Clinton dropping by Trump’s box at Flushing Meadows. “I actually think Bill was in another box and he came by to say hello to Donald,” she said. “Melania is also a friend and we all went to tennis together and had a great day … Donald was always a good host and close friend. And his wife Melania is equally as kind. “

Bax said she’d met both Clintons before, running into Bill Clinton at a “charity event.” She also said she was “never” Trump’s girlfriend, but was a “close longtime friend” of his.

In interviews last month, the New Zealand native said she would vote for Trump if she could. …

Bax, who was featured in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue in 2000 and on the cover of Playboy in March 2001, also said she’d tried to reform Trump’s infamous combover. No luck.
