Most senior Republicans including former Republican presidential candidate John McCain and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have withdrawn support for US presidential candidate Donald Trump after his obscene remarks about women became public.

More than a dozen of Top Republicans have said they will not be voting for him, since the comments emerged on Friday.

Mr. Trump says he will never drop out of the race to be president and will never let his supporters down. He has been under pressure after a tape from 2005 of him bragging about groping and kissing women was broadcast.

In the recorded comments, which date back to 2005 when Mr. Trump was appearing as a guest on a soap, he says “you can do anything” to women “when you’re a star” and is heard saying “grab them by the pussy”.

Mr. Trump’s wife Melania issued a statement on Saturday saying: “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me.” She said her husband had “the heart and mind of a leader”.

Now the race is much closer than it has been in months.  If Trump can spend the next few days avoiding self-inflicted wounds or ‘harakiri’, there could be a path for him.
