After the release of a 2005 footage of US presidential nominee Donald Trump making lewd comments on women, his wife, Melania, has called them “unacceptable and offensive”. Melania Trump made a rare statement on her husband’s campaign website saying: “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”

In a video unearthed by The Washington Post, Donald Trump was seen making the remarks with American television host Billy Bush. The Republican nominee talked about having sex with a married woman and kissing and groping others without permission. The video also showed Trump using graphic terms to describe women’s bodies.

At the time, Trump had been newly married to Slovenian model Melania Knauss.

Donald Trump apologized for his comments in the video. However it has already caused quite a stir within the Republican party, with leaders rebuking Trump’s statements and supporters changing their minds. House Speaker Paul Ryan uninvited Trump from an event which was to be his first with the Republican presidential candidate.

Democratic nominee and Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton tweeted that “we cannot allow this man to become the president.” She termed the situation as “horrific”.

    Modi and Trump are twin brothers with No respect for Minorities and the weak. They are both fascists. No wonder modi is supporting him.

        Atleast Trump has a respect in foreign countries, but MODI wherever he goes he get insultation. In order to respect, Ambani brothers, and Adani spent millions of dollars to up lift him. Inspite of this nothing happened, and remain as google searched top 10 criminals of the world.

                Many in India believe that India's Modi and Donald Trump have many common traits. Core supporters of Modi's love Trump too as much.

                  In politics your opponents are in front of you and your enemies are behind you. So some one who is standing solidly behind Modiji must have paid him

                    At least Melania is saying what a wife should when her hubby behaves like Trump but, Hillary Clinton, never said anything when her serial rapist husband was molesting hundreds of women, she went after his victims threatening them into silence: Hillary "cares" about "all" the women except the victims of her husband!
