Trump Issues Apology Over Offensive Sexual Assault Comments

Washington: The already remarkable US presidential campaign has taken a stunning twist after Donald Trump issued an video apology after a recording surfaced in which he talked about doing anything he wanted to women, including groping and assaulting them without their consent.

Amid a storm of outcry after Mr Trump was seen bragging in 2005 of trying to have sex with a married women and saying that because he was a celebrity, he could “Grab ‘em by the p****,” the Republican candidate issued a statement issued in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“I’ve never said I am a perfect person. I have said some foolish things,” he said in a 90 second video before claiming the controversy over his comments was a “distraction”.

“Hillary Clinton and her kind have run our country into the ground. Bill Clinton has actually abused women.”
