Trump addresses "locker room talk" at the 2nd presidential debate

Early in the second presidential debate on Sunday October 9, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump responded to a question regarding his vulgar comments on sexual assault from 2005 that were recently resurfaced.

"We received lot of questions online Mr. Trump about the tape released on Friday," said debate moderator Anderson Cooper, "You can imagine, you called what you said locker room banter, you described kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. That is sexual assault. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?"

"No, I didn't say that at all," Trump started. "I don't think you understood what was said. This was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it. I apologized to my family. I apologized to the American people. Certainly I'm not proud of it. But this is locker room talk."

During his reply, Trump made comments about defeating ISIS and the U.S. economy.
