"I have a very good marriage now. Melania's fantastic," Trump told a South Carolina town hall audience on Thursday night. 
 
"But I had two women that I never blamed because I worked so hard that my job came first."
 
Trump had this moment of reflection at the end of the town hall after CNN moderator Anderson Cooper asked him if there was "one thing you wish you didn't do."
 
"Maybe I work too hard," the billionaire said.
 
"I was a better father than I was a husband. But I worked very, very hard and I love doing it. ... So, not that I'd change anything, but if I did a little bit less, I probably wouldn't have had two marriages that didn't work out."
