Trump responds to decade-old comments about hitting on and groping women

NEW YORK – Devastating video showing Donald Trump talking about women in demeaning ways over ten years ago exploded onto the internet this weekend, prompting the real estate mogul to release a statement defending himself.

In video released in recent days, Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for President of the United States, says that women should be “grabbed” by their private parts, and that when he sees a beautiful woman, he cannot help but “kiss” them.

Here is the video of Trump’s remarks, from 2005:

Here is Trmup’s statement in response:

Donald Trump
Here is my statement.

I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me, know these words don’t reflect who I am.

I said it, it was wrong, and I apologize.

I’ve travelled the country talking about change for America. But my travels have also changed me. I’ve spent time with grieving mothers who’ve lost their children, laid off workers whose jobs have gone to other countries, and people from all walks of life who just want a better future. I have gotten to know the great people of our country, and I’ve been humbled by the faith they’ve placed in me. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow, and will never, ever let you down.

Let’s be honest. We’re living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we are facing today. We are losing our jobs, we are less safe than we were 8 years ago and Washington is broken.

Hillary Clinton, and her kind, have run our country into the ground.

I’ve said some foolish things, but there is a big difference between words and actions. 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.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will debate for the second time, Sunday night.
