REGIONAL (KRON) — Donald Trump is issuing a rare apology after a video showed him making extremely lewd, sexually charged comments about women in 2005. He now calls it “locker room banter.”
The Republican nominee said “I apologize if anyone was offended.” Trump issued the statement after The Washington Post revealed the video of him caught on a hot mic while talking with Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood.”
Trump is heard saying he “did try and f— her,” referring to an unknown woman. He also used graphic terms to describe the woman’s body and said he frequently tried to kiss beautiful women.
He boasted that “when you’re a star they let you do it.”
He said: “You can do anything.”
Trump has a long history of making crude comments about women.
