Trump talks about women in crass terms in 2005 video

Donald Trump discusses how he "moved" on a married woman "very heavily" in an effort to have a sexual relationship with her and boasts that, as a star, women let him do anything he wants, in a 2005 video obtained by The Washington Post that features the real estate mogul using salacious language.

In the video, Trump and Billy Bush, the former Access Hollywood host now with NBC's Today show, engage in graphic discussions of women en route to the Days of Our Lives set, where Trump is set to record a piece about an upcoming appearance on the soap opera.

"I did try and f--- her," Trump tells Bush of the married woman in question, while acknowledging he was unsuccessful. "I moved on her like a b---- but I couldn't get there," Trump says.

Later in the video, as Trump and Bush spot Arianne Zucker — who The Post says was there to escort them to the set for the segment — the real estate mogul says: "I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her," adding that he immediately starts kissing "beautiful" women when he encounters them.

"I don't even wait." Trump says. "And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything — grab them by the p----."

In a statement shortly after the video's release, Trump dismisses its importance.

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago," the GOP presidential nominee says. "Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”
