Donald Trump’s wife Melania says she disagrees with her husband on “many things” including his language.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday, Mrs. Trump said her husband is “an adult” and he “knows the consequences and so I let him be who he is.” (RELATED: Trump: Repeating Cruz Is A ‘P**sy’ Was ‘Like A Retweet’ [VIDEO])
Melania suggested, “We are both very independent, [I] let him be who he is, and he let’s me be who I am.”
Cooper interjected, “You don’t try to change him?
“I don’t try to change him,” Melania responded. “He’s an adult. He knows the consequences and so I let him be who he is. I give him my opinions many, many times.”
An incredulous Cooper replied, “You do?”
“Yes, and I don’t agree with everything [that] says. But you know that is his normal. I am my own person, I tell him what I think. I’m standing strong on the ground, on my two feet and I’m my own person and I think that’s very important in the relationship.”
Cooper followed up, “Can you say something where you disagreed with him on?
“Oh, many things, some language of course,” Melania said. Cooper then asked her about her husband’s language on the campaign trail and she said, “Especially, I was in New Hampshire when the woman was shouting out the inappropriate word and I was there, and I’m thinking don’t repeat it, in my head for him, don’t repeat it, just don’t say it because the next day, media, all they will talk about is that.”
“But he repeat[ed] it. He’s with the momentum, he goes with the flow, he goes with the people. They’re having fun. Everybody were cheering. And you know, he said it,” Melania said. “But he repeated the word. That was not his word.”
Cooper then asked, “So he heard from you about that?”
“Yeah, I told him that, yes,” Trump said.
