The United States president candidate Donald Trump, apologized for the comments about the women in a released videotape from 2005. Republican presidential candidate commented the obscene remarks he said in 2005, while he gave an interview to the TV host Billy Bush.
Trump appeared to make an apology for the explicit wording he used during the unaired part of the segment, while Trump appeared to the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Trump said, “These words don’t reflect who I am… I apologize.” Trump apologized in a 90-second statement for the first time in the campaign, which was full with controversial remarks.
The video posted by the Washington Post brings the words of Trump who claims that, “You can do anything” to women, “when you are a star.” In the video, Trump said to TV host Billy Bush to have sex with a married woman.
On Twitter, the comments prompt enormous reactions. Some of the reactions came from the former Republican administration. Peter Wehner, who contributes with the opinion in the New York Times said the news could affect the second presidential debate.
Top Republicans condemned the comments, including Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan who distanced of the Trump’s campaign for the president. Ryan said he was “sickened by what I heard today.” He would not attending the Republican Fall Fest in his home state of Wisconsin this weekend.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Twitter condemned the way Trump talked to the women. Two days before the second presidential debate, Clinton lashed on Trump with the words, “We cannot allow this man to become president.”
But, Trump returned with attacks to the former President Bill Clinton.
A TV host Billy Bush explained his behavior, as he was recorded as laughing while Trump speaks on the tape during the comments.”It’s no excuse, but this happened 11 years ago. I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry,” Bush said.
