Donald Trump: ‘The Clintons have not been very good at getting the job done’
Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to defend his wife, Melania, after a leaked video surfaced of the first lady appearing to make an obscene gesture to an aide during a 2007 trip to India.
“The Clintons, by the way, are not very good with getting the jobs done,” Trump said.
“They’ve been very poor at it.”
The Trump campaign issued a statement in which Trump said he was “disappointed” in the remarks.
“I have never and will never do anything to hurt the Clintons or their family, or their businesses,” he said.
The Clintons have had a very rough time lately,” he added.
The video shows Trump making a comment to a woman in the crowd of about 1,000 attendees.
She says, “I’d like to see you at the inauguration.”
Trump says, “‘Oh, my God. “
You are very beautiful,” Trump replies.
Trump says, “‘Oh, my God.
I don’t even know how I’m going to get in.'”
The video was published on the website of the website TMZ, which has an extensive history of publishing photos and video of celebrities and politicians in questionable ways.
“There are no excuses for this,” Trump wrote.
“We must get this country back on track, get the economy moving again and we must restore the moral high ground.”
The White House has denied the allegations, saying that the president did not make any comments about the woman and that Trump “was merely joking.”
Trump has said that he would be willing to give a speech to a Muslim audience to “prove that there is moral turpitude” for people to disrespect the Prophet Muhammad.
The First Lady has denied any wrongdoing, and her campaign released a statement saying that she is “deeply sorry” for the video.
Trump has also said that the woman who made the video was “a very talented woman” and that “no woman would ever intentionally hurt anybody in that situation.”
The Clintons did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the comments.
Trump said on Twitter that he believes the woman in question was an aide to his wife and said the situation is “sickening.”
“This is a disgusting incident,” Trump tweeted.
“What happened to Melania is a disgrace.
This was done in a private setting and she should be ashamed of herself.”
