Donald Trump finds himself in hot water once more as video from 2005 captured the U.S. presidential candidate making shocking comments about an unidentified woman.
Video unearthed by the Washington Post recorded Trump telling former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush, “I did try and f*** her. She was married…I moved on her like a b***. But I couldn’t get there.”
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful. I just start kissing them,” Trump added. ”And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ‘em by the p****.”
According to the newspaper, Trump and Bush were caught talking on a live hot mic moments before the then 60-year-old star filmed a cameo on “Days of Our Lives”.
Trump addressed his comments in a statement released on Friday but refused to acknowledge the gravity of his words. “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close,” he insisted. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Bush, meanwhile, deleted his Twitter account once the clip began circulating online.
Celebrities have since rushed to Twitter slamming the presidential hopeful and his comments.
