The Stern Warning Melania Trump Once Gave Donald About His Behavior
Lifestyle News
In a 2005 Access Hollywood interview, Donald Trump was caught on a hot mic speaking about kissing women without consent and explicitly stating that he didn't mind violating them.
"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 told Billy Bush.
He added that he could "Grab 'em by the p***y." Insiders reported that when his comments surfaced in 2016, Melania Trump issued him a stark warning about his behavior.
In her book, Washington Post reporter Mary Jordan wrote that Mrs. Trump thought he jeopardized his campaign, saying, "Now you could lose. You could have blown this for us."
Jordan said Melania thought Trump could be president. Author Stephanie Winston Wolkoff said Melania told her, "If it weren't for this, there would be no question, he would win.'"
Publicly, Mrs. Trump dismissed how her spouse spoke about women, calling it nothing more than immature male banter, but did make it clear that his words were unacceptable.
