Melania Trump defended her husband as “kind,” a “gentleman” who cares about women, in a new interview, adding that she advised him against doing interviews with people who goad him to say the wrong thing.
In a taped interview on Fox News' "Fox and Friends," the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said she didn’t like the idea of interviews with hosts Billy Bush and Howard Stern.
“I know those people,” she said. “They hook you on. They try to get from him some unappropriate and dirty language.”
Video and audio from a 2005 interview with Bush surfaced this month in which Trump talks about grabbing women’s genitals and kissing them without their consent.
The things that her husband said to Bush “were offensive to me,” Trump said in the Fox interview. “They were unappropriate. He apologized to me and I accept his apology. And we are moving on. ... He’s not the man that we heard him on the tape.”
But she took issue with the nine women who have come forward publicly since then to describe Trump’s behavior with them, several of them alleging that he grabbed or kissed them without their consent.
Melania Trump said she believes this was “organized.”
“Why now?” she asked. “Why three weeks before the election?”
“All of the allegations should be handled in a court of law,” she said. “To accuse somebody ... it’s damaging, and it’s unfair.”
