US presidential candidate Donald Trump has apologised for obscene comments about women he made in a newly released videotape from 2005. Mr Trump said that “these words don’t reflect who I am… I apologise”. In the video, Mr Trump says “you can do anything” to women “when you’re a star” and brags about trying to grope and kiss women. Top Republicans condemned the comments. His election rival Hillary Clinton called them “horrific”. “We cannot allow this man to become president,” sheposted on Twitter. Mr Trump’s 90-second statement on Saturday morning appeared to be his first full apology in a campaign laced with controversial remarks. “I’ve said and done things I regret,” he said. “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologise. “I’ve never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I’m not. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow.” However, he also tried to deflect the impact by attacking former President Bill Clinton.
