“They were — they were lies, and as I said before, all the accusations, they should be handled in a court of law,” Trump said.
Stephanapoulus asked her if she thinks the lawsuits against the woman who have made the accusations against Trump should “move forward,” as the nominee has stated he might do, she agreed. (RELATED: Everyone Is Talking About The Dress Melania Trump Wore To The Presidential Debate Tonight)
“Yes, I believe that,” Trump said. “To accuse somebody of — without evidence, it’s very hurtful and it’s very damaging and unfair. And — but honestly, do we still need to talk about that?”
“I think American people want to hear the problems that we have in America,” she added. “Let’s talk about jobs, let’s talk about secure our border, that’s what American people want to talk about.”
The possible next first lady also shared what her focus will be if she gets in the White House.
“I will focus on helping children and women and also about social media in this 21st century, what’s going on — it’s very hurtful to children, to some adults, as well, but we need to take care of children,” Trump responded. “We need to teach them how to use it, what is right to say, what is not right to say and — because it’s very bad out there, and children get hurt.”
Stephanopoulos then asked if she gave Trump advice on what he should say on Twitter.
“Yes, I do, all the time,” Trump replied.
“Hey, look, it’s a modern-day form of communication,” Donald Trump then joked. “It’s a big asset. You have to use it right. But it’s a big asset.”
Trump also made news when he announced that his wife is planning to make “two or three” speeches before now and the end of the campaign.
