Melania Trump Reacts to Sexual Allegations Against Donald, Lewd Tape
In her first interview since the initial allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband broke, Melania Trump told Fox News' Ainsley Earhardt how she felt about those accusations and why she is defending Donald Trump as he and Hillary Clinton close in on Election Day.
Ainsley's interview with Mrs. Trump will air in its entirety Tuesday morning on Fox & Friends, but Megyn Kelly and Trace Gallagher offered a sneak preview on The Kelly File Monday night.
"Why now, why three weeks before the election. What they are accusing my husband [of], that is not the person that I know," Trump said, "They want to damage the presidency of my husband. And it was all planned, all organized from that position."
Trump acknowledged the allegations, as well as leaked audio of a conversation Mr. Trump had with Billy Bush, have been painful to witness: "Those words--they were offensive to me--and they were inappropriate. He apologized to me and I accepted his apology. We are moving on.
"We talked about it," she said, "and of course we know-- His life...where he was. His life was an open book. My husband is raw and he's real and tells it like it is. He doesn't want to brush it off."
Tune in Tuesday morning to Fox & Friends, beginning at 6 a.m., to see Ainsley's entire interview.
