Donald Trump has apologised for words he said in 2005 that were released on Friday, where he bragged about trying to seduce a married woman and boasted he can get away with ‘anything’ when trying to bed a woman.
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone 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, knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I 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 have 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 have been humbled by the faith they have 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’re less safe than we were eight years ago, and Washington is totally 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 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,” he said.
