After damning footage of Donald Trump making extraordinarily lewd comments surfaced this week, Americans have increased their efforts to get the Republican presidential nominee to drop out of the race.
“The media and establishment want me out of the race so badly—I WILL NEVER DROP OUT OF THE RACE, WILL NEVER LET MY SUPPORTERS DOWN! #MAGA,” Trump tweeted.
Meanwhile, those close to Trump have issued statements condemning his statements. Many note that they continue to support him as a candidate.
“The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me,” Melania Trump, his wife, said in a statement on Saturday. “This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
Even Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, spoke out against him following the incident.

Dr. Ben Carson, who as endorsed Trump, confirmed that he has no intentions of leaving the race.
Ed Henry noted that Trump is a serial womanizer, and it’s only a matter of time until more evidence comes forward.
“They have more things and they will drip them out,” he commented.
What do you think? Can Trump recover from this?
