Melania Trump Responds to Donald Trump's Tape

When the lewd and assault-condoning conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush was captured in September 2005, Trump had recently married Melania. In the wake of possible adultery, Melania released a statement to the media about her husband's comments.

Like other Republicans who have commented on Trump's tape, Melania makes it clear that the words her husband used were "unacceptable and offensive." Despite that, she does not address the possibility that he was trying to cheat on her and (not surprisingly) accepts his apology, deciding to stick by him as she urges his supporters to do as well.

Unfortunately for the Trump campaign, more and more GOP'ers are backing out.
