Washington - Despite a flurry of sexual assault accusations against Donald Trump and recordings of him boasting that he uses his fame to grope and kiss women, Melania Trump on Monday shrugged off her husband's "boy talk" in an interview with CNN.

Just as her billionaire husband has, the Slovenian-born ex-model slammed the media for unfair treatment of the Republican White House nominee who has recently lost ground in the polls to his Democratic rival.

Melania Trump turned the blame on the host of the show that aired the tape of Trump boasting that as a star he can grab women "by the pussy".

"I said to my husband that, you know, the language is inappropriate, it's not acceptable," Melania Trump said in the sit-down interview. "And I was surprised because that is not the man that I know."

"I wonder if they even knew that the mic was on because they were kind of boy talk and he was led on, like, egged on from the host to say dirty and bad stuff."

She said that she had never heard her husband use such vulgarity.

"I don't know that person that would talk that way and that he would say that kind of stuff," she said, before writing if off as "boy talk".

"The boys, the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, oh, this and that and talking about the girls," she went on.

"But yes, I was surprised of course."

Conspiracy

Trump's wife seemed to echo some of his claim that there is a conspiracy out to derail his campaign.

"I was not surprised that the tape came out," she said. "Why after so many years? Why three weeks before the election?"

"It was the media. It was NBC. It was Access Hollywood."

Melania Trump said the "left-wing media" was "bashing him because they want to influence the American people how to vote. And they're influencing in the wrong way."

She voiced dismay when told that most Americans believe the Republican presidential candidate has made unsolicited and unwanted passes at women.

"My husband is kind, and he's a gentleman. And he would never do that," she said.

"Everything was organised and put together to hurt him, to hurt his candidacy."
