“People talk about me like, ‘Oh, Melania, oh poor Melania,’” she told host Anderson Cooper on CNN’s “360” late Monday. "People don’t really know me. I’m very strong. I can handle everything. Don’t feel sorry for me. Don’t feel sorry for me.”


Trump said she trusts her husband, having witnessed the Republican presidential nominee's handling of women who approach him.

“I’ve seen many women coming to him and giving phone numbers and you know, [wanting] to work for him or inappropriate stuff from women,” she said. "They know he’s married. It was in front of me. I said, ‘Why do you need to give your number to my husband?'”

But she said her husband is a gentleman and said she is offended by how the media has reported on her husband and their family.

“The names they are calling me, they are calling my husband, calling my family, it’s unacceptable,” she said. "[Donald Trump’s] very passionate about the American people.

“He’s a worker, he’s a fighter. He will not give up. He will fight until the end. And he will fight for [the] American people as he’s fighting now for himself.”
