Trump Apologizes for comments against women
Oct 8, Washington DC: Donald Trump has apologised for obscene comments about women in a newly released videotape from 2005.
Trump said that "these words don't reflect who I am... I apologise", he said on Saturday.
Trump's 90-second statement on Saturday morning appeared to be his first full apology in a campaign laced with controversial remarks."I've said and done things I regret," he said. "Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologise.
"I've never said I'm a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I'm not. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow."
Trump will enter tomorrow's debate with a new cloud hanging over his candidacy. It's almost certain that one of the town hall participants will ask him about it. There may be no easy way to respond - butTrump will have to find an acceptable answer. If he bungles it, nothing else he says during the 90-minute debate will matter."Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary has bullied, attacked and shamed his victims. "We'll discuss this in the coming days," he said. "See you at the debate on Sunday."
The second TV debate between Mr Trump and Mrs Clinton will take place on Sunday evening in St Louis.
