In a new interview, Melania Trump said that she does not try to change her husband, even though she often disagrees with him.

“He’s an adult, he knows the consequences,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper of her husband Donald Trump’s controversial statements. “I give him my opinions many, many times. I don’t agree with everything what he says, but that is normal. I’m my own person.”

When Cooper pressed Trump on what specifically she has disagreed with, she said, “Some language, of course.” She then cited the time her husband repeated a vulgar word at a New Hampshire rally in early February.

“I’m thinking in my head, don’t repeat it. Just don’t repeat it,” she said.
