Walters asked the couple: “Is yours a marriage of equals?”

“I would say yes,” Melania replied.

“I would say no. I think she's far greater than the 50 percent,” he said. “No, no, we have a pretty equal relationship, wouldn't you say?”

“Yes,” she replied.

Donald says his wife gave him advice after the debates: “She said, ‘You can tone it down a little bit on occasion,’ which I understand.”

Walters asked the billionaire’s wife: “What is the biggest criticism about him that is untrue?”

“I would say that he is nasty. He's not and he has a big heart and very warm heart,” she said.

Walters also spoke to four of the mogul’s children in the interview. Baron, 8, Donald Trump's youngest son with his wife, Melania, was not interviewed.
