Melania Trump Donald's Words Are Unacceptable and Offensive

Melania Trump has come out and denounced Donald's words from the leaked video ... calling the clip "unacceptable and offensive."

Melania released her statement Saturday, almost 24 hours after the 2005 video surfaced. Melania says, "The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader."

The could-be First Lady concludes, "I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world."

ET host Nancy O'Dell, a target in the video of Trump and Billy Bush has remained silent.
