Donald Trump apologizes for statements he made in a 2005 video leaked Friday evening to the Washington Post. Trump pledged to be "a better man tomorrow."
"I’ve said and done things I regret," Trump said in a video statement released just after midnight on Friday. "I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize."
DONALD TRUMP: I've never said I'm a perfect person, or pretended to be someone I am not. I've said and done things I regret, and the words today in this more than a decade old video are one of them.
Anyone who knows me, knows these words do not reflect who I am.
I said it. I was wrong. And I apologize.
I've travelled the country talking about change for America. My travels have also changed me. I've spent time with grieving mothers who have lost their children, laid off workers whose jobs have gone to othr countries, and people from all walks of life who just want a better future.
I have gotten to know the great people of our country, and I have been humbled by the faith they have placed in me.
I pledge to be a better man tomorrow, and I will never, ever let you down.
Let's be honest. We are living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we're facing today. We are losing our jobs, we are less safe than we were eight years ago, and Washington is totally broken.
Hillary Clinton and her kind have run our country into the ground. I've said some foolish things, but there is a big difference between the words and actions of other people. Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed, and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days.
See you at the debate on Sunday.
