Huma Abedin, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's longtime top aide, announced Monday that she and husband Anthony Weiner are separating after news of the former congressman's latest sexting scandal emerged over the weekend.

"After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband. Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy," her statement said.

Abedin has been an aide to Clinton since the '90s.

Weiner reportedly deleted his Twitter account Monday after the New York Post reported that he had exchanged sexual messages with a woman starting last year. One of the exchanges reported by the Post included a risque photo of Weiner with his young son on the bed beside him.

Donald Trump was quick to issue a statement, saying that "Huma is making a very wise decision," The New York Times reported.

"I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him," Trump wrote, according to the Times.

"I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information," Trump wrote, according to the Times. "Who knows what he learned and who he told? It's just another example of Hillary Clinton's bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this."

The former Democratic Rep. Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after the first sex scandal came to light. Weiner had been sending lewd messages and photos online to random women.

He then took a run at New York City mayor until it was revealed he had again been exchanging messages with women online, using the pseudonym Carlos Danger.
The Times did an interview with Weiner in July during which he said:

"There's no doubt that the Trump phenomenon has led a lot of people to say to me, 'Boy, compared to inviting the Russians to come hack someone's email, your thing seems almost quaint.'"
