In a move that could seemingly only come from Donald Trump, the businessman’s campaign praised his wife Melania’s nude photos being printed by the New York Post on the same day he promised to crack down on internet porn.

 

On Monday morning on CNN’s Reliable sources, Trump’s campaign adviser Tim Miller told host Brian Stelter the campaign had no problem with the pictures being printed, claiming the Trump camp was proud of Melania’s work.

 

“They’re a celebration of the human body as art,” Miller told Stelter Monday. “There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. She’s a beautiful woman.”

 

Following the morning scuffle over the racy photos printed by the New York Post, some of which show Melania embracing another nude woman, the advocacy group Enough is Enough printed a statement affirming Trump’s signing of their anti-porn pledge.

 

“Mr. Trump’s leadership and commitment to uphold the rule of law is demonstrated by his signing of the Children’s Internet Safety Presidential Pledge,” said CEO and President Donna Rice Hughes in the statement. “Governments can’t parent and parents can’t enforce the law. Parents alone cannot prevent internet crimes against their children.”

 

Enough is Enough, whose “mission is to make the Internet Safer for Children and Families,” has reportedly reached out to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who has thus far declined to sign their anti-porn pledge.

 

Donald Trump has vowed to appoint a special commission to to examine the “harmful public health impact” that porn has on society. Trump’s move comes as a surprise to many who see him as a break from the traditional social conservatism of the Republican Party, considering his long list of marriages to super model wives, praise of Planned Parenthood on their purposes outside of abortion, and acceptance of transgender bathroom rights.
