Melania Trump stood by her husband on Monday night in Wisconsin as Donald Trump faced continued criticism over his relationship with women.

“It is wonderful to be here to be here today with you and with my husband. I am very proud of him,” Melania said. “He’s kind. He has a great heart. He’s tough. He’s smart. He’s a great negotiator. He’s telling the truth. He’s a great leader. He’s fair.”

After touting the GOP front-runner’s best qualities, the potential future first lady touched on his relationship with women, reiterating to the crowd that Trump is a fair man.

“As you know now, when you attack him he will punch back 10 times harder no matter who you are – a man or a woman,” she added. “He treats everyone equal. He’s a fighter and if you elect him to be your president he will fight for you and our country. He will work for you and with you and together we will make America strong and great again.”

Melania wasn’t the only one backing the Republican presidential hopeful. Trump welcomed Ms. Wisconsin to take the stage and the former pageant queen shared her love for Trump, as she’s done as an audience member at previous rallies.

“I love this man. He changed my world,” Melissa Consin Young said. “He gave me the gift of compassion and showing my son how to pay it forward. He is the greatest man I ever met and he is going to make America great again.”

Trump’s comments on women has caused controversy about whether or not the billionaire businessman is a good choice for them, as he’s made a handful of derogatory comments about women during his campaign trail.

Throughout March, the melee continued when an anti-Donald Trump ad was released, showing women reading comments the candidate had made recently and as far back as 20 years.

Trump was again condemned last week when he said that women who undergo abortions should face punishment if the United States ban the procedure. Although he later clarified that doctors who perform the procedure should be punished, he still faced criticism from Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz.
