Almost 24 hours after the initial video that showed Donald Trump talking about being able to grope woman because of his celebrity status, his wife, Melania Trump, sent out an official statement.
"The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world. "
Trump’s comments were picked up from a hot mic from a 2005 taping of Access Hollywood and published by The Washington Post on Friday afternoon. The comments have sent the Republican Party into a frenzy. Many elected officials are calling on him to drop out and give the nomination to his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. Trump has apologized for making the remarks but vowed to stay in the race.
Trump's wife has remained relatively out of the spotlight since the Republican National Convention in July, where she gave a speech that included a section taken from Michelle Obama's 2008 Democratic National Convention speech. An aide to the family took the fall for pulling the text, but Trump's wife has stayed out of the spotlight since then.
