New York : Melania Trump defended husband Donald Trump in her first interview since the Republican presidential nominee faced allegations of sexual misconduct, calling those accusations “lies”. She said Trump was “egged on” into “boy talk” during a 2005 tape in which he made lewd comments about women.
“I believe my husband…This was all organised from the opposition. And with the details… did they ever check the background of these women? They don’t have any facts,” Melania said in a CNN interview on Monday night. She also said she never heard her husband use that kind of language before. “No, that’s why I was surprised, because I said like I don’t know that person that would talk that way, and that he would say that kind of stuff in private,” Melania said. “I heard many different stuff — boys talk,” she said, adding “The boys, the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, ‘Oh, this and that’ and talking about the girls. But yes, I was surprised, of course.”
Melania said her husband was “egged on” in the tape in which he made lewd comments about his own sexually aggressive behaviour toward women — remarks she says were “boy talk”. “I said to my husband that, you know, the language was inappropriate. It’s not acceptable. And I was surprised, because that is not the man that I know,” she said.
