Melania Trump defended Donald Trump in her first interview since the Republican nominee faced allegations of sexual misconduct, CNN.
In an interview to CNN on Monday, Melania Trump said her husband was "egged on" in the 2005 tape in which he made lewd comments about his own sexually aggressive behavior toward women.
In the wake of that tape published by The Washington Post and NBC, several women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.
Melania Trump commented:"I believe my husband. I believe my husband.
"This was all organized from the opposition. And with the details ... did they ever check the background of these women? They don't have any facts."
She also said she hadn't heard her husband use that kind of language before.
"No. 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 Trump said.
"I heard many different stuff -- boys talk," she said. "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.
"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.
Presidential candidate's wife said: "He's raw. He will say it as he feels it. So you know, I know he respects women. But he's defending himself because they're lies."
