Melania Trump sat down with MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski for a one-on-one interview that aired Wednesday on "Morning Joe."
Trump has mostly stayed away from the campaign trail. But as Donald Trump was on his way to another decisive presidential-primary win this week in Nevada's GOP caucuses, she told Brzezinski that she stood by her billionaire husband "100%."
Brzezinski pressed Trump on a host of topics, including her husband's claim that the Mexican government was sending rapists and murderers across the US border.
"I don't feel that he insulted the Mexicans," Trump said. "He said the 'illegal immigrants.' He didn't talk about everybody. He talked about 'illegal immigrants."
"And after [a] few weeks, like after two weeks, giving him a hard time and bashing him in the media, they turned around," she added. "They said, 'You know what? He's right. He's right what he's talking about.' And he opened conversation that nobody did."
Brzezinski, whose show has been accused of having too cozy a relationship with the Republican frontrunner, pointed out that Trump was herself an immigrant from Slovenia.
"But you are an immigrant. Do you ever think he's gone too far?" Brzezinski asked.
"I follow the law," Trump said. "I follow the law the way it's supposed to be. I never thought to stay here without papers."
Brzezinski also asked Trump about her husband's use of vulgar terms and profanity on the campaign trail.
"Do I agree all the time with him? No, I don't," Trump replied. "And I tell him that. I tell him my opinions. I tell him what I think. Sometimes he listens. Sometimes he don't."
