The audio, first obtained by The Washington Post, was apparently recorded in 2005, while Trump was on a bus with former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush. In it, Trump is heard talking about trying — and failing — to have sex with an unnamed woman. He had been married to his wife, Melania Trump, for a few months at the time.
"When you're a star," Trump says, women let you "do anything."
"Grab them by the p----,” Trump says. "You can do anything."
This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president. https://t.co/RwhW7yeFI2— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 7, 2016
Planned Parenthood Action Fund, which has endorsed Clinton for president, said what Trump describes in the audio “amounts to sexual assault.”
“Trump's behavior is disgusting and unacceptable in any context, and it is disqualifying for a man who is running for president of this country,” said Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the fund.
"No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever,” Priebus said.
