A day after the release of video that recorded her husband, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, making extremely lewd comments about women, Melania Trump issued a statement condemning her husband’s words.

Melania Trump followed her husband’s lead as she focused on the ‘words’ he used, though many are not only expressing disgust with his words, but the conduct to which he was admitting in the recording.

“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.”

Donald Trump was caught on a live microphone while on an Access Hollywood bus bragging about sexually assaulting women, claiming he could because he was famous. The revelation has put his campaign and the entire party in crisis as Republican leaders have begun withdrawing their endorsements, many calling for Trump to step our of the race with just over 30 days remaining until election day.

For his part, Trump issued a defiant apology which itself has been widely criticized. He was disinvited to major Republican event in Wisconsin hosted by Paul Ryan which was billed as a unity event for the Party. Even his vice presidential running mate has sought to distance himself from the nominee. Mike Pence issued a statement earlier in the day:

Trump has remained somewhat active on Twitter, his method of choice for communicating to the public. Early in the day, Trump tweeted:

He then responded to calls for him to step down blaming the media and the political establishment:

“The media and establishment want me out of the race so badly – I WILL NEVER DROP OUT OF THE RACE, WILL NEVER LET MY SUPPORTERS DOWN! #MAGA”
