It seems the barrage of videos from Donald Trump’s past, questioning his attitude towards women, is not going to stop anytime soon. A week after a 2005 video recounting Trump making obscene remarks about women came out via the Washington Post, another video brought out now by CBS news from 1992 could be hurtful for the Republican candidate’s campaign.
In the video, Trump could be heard talking to a little girl who is going up on an escalator at the Trump Tower.
“You going up the escalator?,” Trump is heard asking. “Yeah,” the girl replies.
“I am going to be dating her in 10 years. Can you believe that?” Trump is heard saying reportedly to the camera.
The short video on YouTube is picking up steam as viewers were horrified that Trump, 46 at the time, could make a remark that objectifies a little girl. The age of the girl could not be ascertained.
Trump’s comments in which he degrades and abuses women were highlighted by his democratic rival Hillary Clinton in the second presidential debate. He, on his part, maintained that he respects women and that the 2005 video was just ‘locker room talk.’ During the debate, Trump, possibly realizing that he is losing support among women voters, apologised for his comments and said he was embarrassed about it. However, women’s groups across the country are protesting calling for Trump’s nomination as the presidential candidate to be cancelled.
The New York Times newspaper reported Thursday that two women talked about being touched inappropriately by Trump almost three decades ago. One of the women said in a video that Trump groped her during a flight. The Republican candidate’s spokesman responded calling the article ‘fiction.’
A poll released by PRRI/The Atlantic showed Clinton having a health 11-point lead over Trump, the advantage coming after the 2005 video of Trump was leaked.
