"One of the most disturbing things about this election is just the unbelievable rhetoric coming at the top of the Republican ticket. I don't need to repeat it.

“Are we really going to risk giving Donald Trump the power to roll back all the progress we’ve made?” he asked.

Obama then proceeded to criticize Trump on many of his other controversial statements throughout the campaign.

“Demeaning, degrading women, but also minorities, immigrants, people of other faiths, mocking the disabled, insulting our troops, insulting our veterans. That tells you a couple things. It tells you he is insecure enough that he pumps himself up by putting other people down," Obama said.
 
"Not a character trait that I would advise for somebody in the Oval Office."
 
In the tape published on Friday, Trump is heard having a lewd private conversation about pursuing women with former "Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything," Trump says in the audio. "Grab them by the p---y."

The Republican nominee has since publicly apologized for his comments and is expected to address the the controversy during the presidential debate on Sunday.
