tacs just in case i start kissing her.
you know, i'm automatically attracted to beautiful -- i just start kissing them. it's like a magnet. i don't even wait. and when you're a star they let you do it. you can do anything. >> whatever you want. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. you can do anything. >> reporter: as he steps off the bus, trump morphs into a gentleman. >> hi. >> hi, mr. trump, how are you? >> pleasure to meet you. terrific. >> how about a little hug for the donald? he just got off the bus. >> absolutely. melania said it was okay. >> reporter: trump tried to brush it off as, quote, "locker room banter," adding, "i apologize if anyone was offended." but the video was a political earthquake. and late friday night, this scripted statement -- >> anyone who knows me, knows these words don't reflect who i am. i said it, i was wrong, and i apologize. >> reporter: but across the spectrum, republicans in revolt, blasting their nominee. repugnant, degrading, vulgar and egregious, offensive and demeaning, vile. >> i think it is degrading to our women, to our daughters, our
granddaughters, to future generations. >> reporter: house speaker paul ryan said he was "sickened." former secretary of state condoleezza rice writing, "enough! donald trump should not be president." and from vice president joe biden, this blunt statement. "it's not lewd. it's sexual assault." perhaps the most extraordinary reaction coming from trump's own running mate, mike pence. friday, he defended trump. >> invariably,
they'll say, this time we got him. then they turn on the next television the next morning, and donald trump is still standing stronger than ever before and fighting for the american people. >> reporter: but the next morning, pence himself releasing a statement saying he was "offended by the words and actions described by donald trump." adding, "i do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them." pence cancelled a campaign appearance, refused to take questions from reporters. >> should donald trump withdraw as a nominee? >> reporter: and said he would be watching to see what his running mate says tonight. standing by trump, his wife
melania. they were newlyweds when trump made those comments on the bus. melania trump now saying, "the words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. i hope people will accept his apology, as i have." the fear, there's more out there, more damaging examples of trump objectifying women. cnn unearthing these comments he made about his own daughter, ivanka, in interviews with howard stern. >> did your daughter get breast implants? >> no. >> no. you mean that? >> no. no, she didn't, i mean i would know if she did, the answer is no, why, did she look a little more stacked? >> she looks more voluptuous than ever. >> she's actually always been very voluptuous. >> reporter: there are other examples. >> my daughter is beautiful, ivanka, she -- >> by the way, your daughter -- >> she's beautiful. >> can i say this? a piece of [ bleep ]. >> yeah. >> reporter: this morning trump and melania spotted outside trump tower, ducking into their suv in the rain. and tonight, his campaign tweeting this grainy image. trump on the debate stage, preparing for the biggest test of his life. sitting down, but likely far from comfortable.
>> and tom llamas joins us live from that town hall debate hall. tom, donald trump in st. louis, he's been tweeting about bill clinton's past all day today. we learned late today that bill and chelsea clinton will be in that room. what are you learning tonight, tom? will trump go there? >> reporter: there was clear division within the campaign on whether donald trump should go there. on friday, saturday, he went there, and today on twitter he went there. there's nothing that leads me to believe tonight, he will not go there. >> tom, our thanks to you. and the big question, as tom just reported, will donald trump try to turn the focus after his own words were uncovered to bill clinton's scandals? keep in mind, this is a different format. donald trump and hillary clinton will be in a town hall with american voters asking some of the questions. any attacks will play out with all of those voters sitting close by in the room. the moderators, our own martha raddatz and cnn's anderson cooper.
that new videotape will come up in tonight's debate. jonathan karl on that decision, whether trump will try to turn the attention from him to bill and hillary clinton. >> reporter: just over a minute into his video apology, donald trump made
his threat. >> i have said some foolish things. 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. >> reporter: the question now, will trump actually go there tonight, when he'sace to face with hillary clinton? over the past 24 hours, he's retweeted comments from juanita broaddrick, a woman who has accused bill clinton of raping her, a charge that's never been proven. it's quite a turn for trump. recently released pictures show clinton and trump during chummier times. and during the height of the monica lewinsky scandal, trump attacked clinton's republican investigators. just listen to what he said in 1998. >> they've made watergate out of what really should have been nothing. >> reporter: trump then defended
bill clinton. >> i don't necessarily agree with his victims. the victims are terrible. he is really a victim himself. but he put himself in that position. >> reporter: he even attacked the women involved. >> the whole group. paula jones, lewinsky. it's just a really unattractive group. i'm not just talking about physical. >> reporter: trump was asked if it would be different if they were supermodels. >> i think at least it would be more pleasant to watch. >> reporter: so which donald trump shows up tonight? trump says he held back in that first debate. >> i was going to say something extremely rough to hillary, to her family, and i said to myself, i can't do it. i just can't do it. it's
inappropriate. it's not nice. >> more than 80 million were watching donald trump when he said that during the first debate. jon, it's still unclear if donald trump will bring up bill clinton, and whether it is a strategy that could backfire.
trump warned before, as you reported, he said he stopped because of chelsea? >> reporter: he called chelsea a wonderful young lady, and said i didn't want to say what i was going to say with chelsea in the room, and as you noted, chelsea will be in the room tonight. and because it's the town hall debate, there will be 40 uncommitted voters sitting right there in close proximity. and hillary clinton said she will respond for the first time to the bombshell video tonight. and her campaign says this town hall format is one she welcomes. cecilia vega on the clinton strategy tonight. >> reporter: hillary clinton, ignoring questions today as she boarded her plane bound for st. louis. >> should donald trump drop ou of the race? >> reporter: her campaign calling donald trump's caught on camera statements "horrific." but so far, from clinton herself, silence. aides tell abc news clinton is waiting to take trump on under the bright lights of that debate stage.
she spent all day yesterday behind closed doors honing her attacks. "snl" going there, imagining clinton celebrating trump's crisis. ♪ and practicing her game face. >> since mr. trump's comments were so bad -- >> oh, so bad. just horrible, horrible. >> do you think he should drop out? >> no, no. give him a shot. >> reporter: but tonight, clinton could confront a new controversy of her own. hackers releasing purported excerpts of her paid speeches to big banks. clinton saying, when it comes to policy, quote, "you need both a public and private position." in another speech, clinton appears to contradict her own public stance on the hot button issue of trade, saying, "my dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders." her campaign won't say whether the documents are real. >> is this document, then, is it
accurate? did she tell brazilian bankers that her dream -- >> i have no way of knowing that. i have no way of knowing that. >> well, you could ask her. >> reporter: tonight, clinton herself could face that very question with millions watching. >> cecilia vega with us live as well. good to have you as always. as we reported, clinton's team says she's very comfortable in town halls. she's done more of these than donald trump. >> reporter: yes, they say this is a forum that favors her. she's done dozens of town halls in iowa, new hampshire. these primaries leading up to this very moment. her campaign pointing to moments of clinton directly interacting with voters, something that could humanize her. >> the debate coming at 9:00 p.m. tonight. comoderated by our own martha raddatz and cnn's anderson
