“I said it, I was wrong and I apologize”: Watch Trump’s Apology over Lewd Remarks About Women

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump scrambled to prevent his campaign from falling apart early on Saturday with a hastily prepared video statement expressing regret for making lewd comments about women.

Trump declared himself a changed man but raised the infidelities of former President Bill Clinton and slammed his Democratic opponent in the November 8 election.

Disclosure of a 2005 video of Trump talking on an open microphone showed the then reality TV star speaking openly about groping women and trying to seduce a married woman.

Democrats have sought to highlight such behaviour to prevent women voters from supporting him with less than a month to go for the election.

The video landed just ahead of the second presidential debate on Sunday night which had been seen as critical for Trump.

He tries to rebound from a dip in some opinion polls after a rocky performance in the first debate.

“This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we’re facing today,” he said, before turning to former President Bill Clinton’s infidelities.

“We will discuss this more in the coming days. See you at the debate on Sunday,” Trump said in his statement.

The bombshell development rocked Trump’s campaign to its core and some Republican lawmakers disavowed him.

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan withdrew an invitation for Trump to visit Wisconsin on Saturday.

He also called for the New York businessman to step aside to let his vice presidential running mate, Mike Pence, become the party’s standard-bearer.

Watch his apology:

    America. Where anything can happen.

    Immigrants with zero cents who can’t speak english become millionaires and mayors. And the most unqualified cheat, liar and misogynist actaully stands a chance of being the president. What a country. Amazeballs.

      Since you are a glaring, close-minded hypocrite, let me spell out a few things for you:
      You live in a country where your politicians are rapists, wife beaters, armed robbers, fraudsters, paedophiles and greed-fueled lunatics and yet you say meaningless nonsense to subconsciously soothe you and your society’s inadequacies? Hilarious.
      Yes, anything can happen in America that includes good AND bad. At least they have freedom, relatively functioning healthcare, education and infrastructure. What do you have? You don’t have roads to drive on and you can’t conduct simple free-and-fair elections when you’re smaller than them in every sense of the word.
      Let me also give you a breakdown of our last three Presidents, including the current one:
      •Buhari: A confused, nepotic power hungry grandpa who is exceptionally clueless and practices hypocritical, selective “anti-corruption” campaigns.
      The fact that Buhari was the lesser of two evils and happened to win that election shows that we are a truly lost and decaying nation.
      •Jonathan: The worst president in the history of the world who was not a dictator/mass murderer. A dumb, drunk and diabolical maniac who looted and was complicit in the looting of a jaw-dropping amounts of state funds. A president who struggled to read coherently despite claiming to have a doctorate degree and makes the most idiotic of comments.
      •OBJ: Ugly on the inside and outside and immensely arrogant, this loud-mouthed Yoruba demon would have been our first true dictator if he had succeeded in bribing his way to a 3rd-term. His horrible government was tainted by election rigging, unbelievable corruption and political assassinations.

      Hmmm. Think twice before you post things that make people question whether you actually have a functioning brain.
      It is always hilarious when you blind Nigerians always try to condemn or pick a fault in foreign politics, culture and society when you yourselves are the worst of the worst.
      Pathetic.

      @a real nigerian.
      At least we don’t pretend to be “Gods own country”. We know we are a developing nation. We don’t act like police/big brother all over the world and we are only 56 years old.
      If out of 300m plus people, donald trump is a good enough representative for 40% of the population, maybe we’re not so bad afterall. :p

      Btw, you’re just as bad as the leaders you’ve mentioned above using offensive words simply because someone airs their own opinion.

    American where U can be anything but make sure u have a clean record when u decide to go into Politics . All hail Pres. Barack Obama for that & I’d be dammed if folks are still standing by him & wanting to vote for him. America where anything can happen at the LAST minute. Take Pre. Obama’s 2nd time running against Romney hmm he won, but that was very close. Let God continue to expose him.

    Sighs! Is this uncouth fellow still talking? He should go hide himself under a table in Trump Tower! Was that even an apology? SMH! I watched that video hearing him say those stuff bout women. It made me sick to the stomach! Shockingly, dumb people will still vote for him. How can a country like America have this guy as president? That’s failure!

      You once had the Otuoke Drunkard as a President. And your current one is a closet Jihadist and Abacha-sympathiser.
      Quite a high moral ground you’re on to make such comments.

      Why didn’t you go and buy presidential form then? It’s very easy to hate from outside of the club. If you get in, Shebi you too will dance shoki.

      The typical Nigerian response. “Hater”, “badbelle”. Disgusting. You’re not funny and you’re not creative.

      You’re sounding unhinged. Our leaders are terrible. I think that’s established so what you’re ranting about under an article about America is beyond me. Criticising this obvious disaster from Trump which he has apologised for and even his wife has slammed does not mean anyone thinks Nigeria is perfect. I hope you can understand this simple principle.

      If it were possible to feel pity for such pure evil, hate, bitterness and deep rejection (i.e. the suffering from) all in one package as is the person behind the @A Real Nigerian (what a whopping lie!) handle, then I would. But it isn’t possible. Instead, every time I see his comments, I always want to laugh, I always find him (assuming he’s a him) ridiculous. And, I always think how much revenue he would bring in and how much resource material he would provide for a good, qualified psychiatrist.

      He is so fixated on Nigeria, so obsessed!

      He lives watching for every slightest opportunity, and sometimes when there isn’t one, he makes one for himself, to spew his hatred and deep bitterness from his seemingly never-ending well of pain and misery.

      The evident private hell he exists is clearly more than enough punishment already, for no shred of light of any kind of happiness, any sort of joy of life, not even by mistake, ever can be found in the outpourings of his soul even if one search with the biggest magnifying glass ever.

      Nevertheless, for every curse, every evil word he/she/it has spoken and pronounced on this great country – whose time of Destiny will not fail to come just as she will not miss it – every curse, every evil word will return back to and fulfill itself in so-called @A Real Nigerian. For real.

      Call it karma. Call it the Law of Sowing and Reaping.

    We have a candidate that is a misogynist, that has zero respect for the opposite sex on one hand, then we have another candidate who attacks her own sex, yet wants us to believe she respects the same sex, she attacked. The truth is we have 2 horrible options in this election!!! God help us. I am voting for who i believe is the 2 of lesser evils but not too happy about my options.

    This would have been the best time for the smaller parties and independents to take over from the Dem-Rep options we’ve always had to choose from and expand their base but of course they had to pick people that do not know their left from their right.

    I have just come to accept that whoever wins this election was meant to win it because it is quite interesting that we have just terrible options this election season. Hopefully, we do better come 2020, 2016 don go!!! Donald J Trump is a troll!!! and Hilary, well, is just a power thirsty monster. Which way AME???

    Americans think their problems will start the day Donald Trump becomes president, unfortunately their problems started the day a man like this could become the candidate of a major political party! The fact that he can even get support at all, shows that America needs to stop manipulating the political affairs of other countries and fix their own issues!

  10. for the real Nigerian
