Washington: Donald Trump’s presidential campaign took severe hit on Friday when a recording of his conversation appeared in which he is making some really obscene remarks about women, he has apologized for his remarks.
Donald Trump has released a 90 second video apologising for his comments, he said, “I’ve said and done things I regret. Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologise. I’ve never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I’m not. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow.”
In the video released by the the Washington Post consists of an interview which Donald Trump gave to Billy Bush, who is the cousin of George and Jeb bush and at the time was the host of Access Hollywood.
Trump is boasting about his approach to women, he was telling him about when he tried to flirt with a married woman, he said,
“I moved on her and I failed, I’ll admit it … I did try and f**k her. She was married.I moved on her like a bitch but I couldn’t get there and she was married … I am automatically attracted to beautiful women. I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss, I don’t even wait … and when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Hillary Clinton reacted by tweeting, “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”
However, in typical Donald Trump fashion he started to point his finger at Bill Clinton rather than clarifying himself, Trump said, “I’ve said some foolish things but there is a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday.”
Many politicians have criticized Donald Trump for his obscene and humiliating remarks including members of his own party.
The majority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell said, “As the father of three daughters, I strongly believe that Trump needs to apologize directly to women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for women shown in his comments on that tape.”
However no one has withdrawn their endorsement of Donald Trump yet.
