According to The New York Times, Melania Trump REFUSED to do a joint video statement with her husband as the scandal about his past obscene comments about women broke.
Immediately after the Washington Post published the 2005 tape on Friday, the Trump campaign suggested that the couple should appear together on camera and address the controversy.
However, sources within the campaign said that Melania Trump refused to do a joint video statement with her husband. The statement would have echoed the joint appearance of Bill and Hillary Clinton on “60 Minutes” in 1992, after Gennifer Flowers accused the president of sexual assault.
In the now famous tape, Donald Trump is heard having a private conversation about pursuing O’Dell and other women.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything,” Trump said. “Grab them by the p—y.”
Trump made a public video apology about his comments and is expected to address the the issue again during the presidential debate on Sunday.
