Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has taken a massive hit this weekend after an audio tape was leaked in which he talked about women in a manner that liberals find demeaning. Since then, the GOP has turned on Trump with many top Republicans withdrawing their support from him.
Last night, Trump emerged from Trump Tower for the first time since the scandal broke, and the response he got was shocking.
Donald Trump has been cheered by dozens of fans in an extraordinary scene outside Trump Tower in New York, just hours after Melania called her husband’s lewd remarks about women from a 2005 video ‘unacceptable and offensive’.
The defiant Republican nominee emerged from his Manhattan skyscraper about 5pm on Saturday, and was immediately mobbed by adoring supporters. Trump waved to his fans and raised a fist in the air before disappearing back inside the building emblazoned with his surname.
Chris Christie was also seen arriving at Trump Tower, as the nominee continues to prepare for the second presidential debate with Hillary Clinton on Sunday night.
Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said calls for Trump to bow out are simply the ‘wishful thinking of the Clinton campaign and those people who have opposed him for a long time,’ also spent most of the day inside Trump Tower.
Earlier in the day, as Trump’s statements were being condemned by his running mate and dozens of senators and representatives withdrew their support and discussed replacing him, Melania said her husband’s words do not represent the man he is today.
‘The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know,’ she said.
‘He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing out nation and the world,’ the statement said.
In the 2005 clip, Trump talks about trying to have sex with a married woman and how he ‘can do whatever he wants’ to women because he’s a star, just months after marrying Melania.
Melania’s disavowal of the comments is the latest among dozens of Republicans who have denounced the GOP nominee’s comments in the 2005 video.
