Trump now says 'Access Hollywood' tape may be fake

However according to the Times, the president told a senator earlier this year that the tape was not genuine and repeated the claim to an adviser recently.

U.S. President Donald Trump apologized a year ago after an Access Hollywood clip revealed him bragging about grabbing women without consent.

Moore has been accused by nine different women of unwanted sexual advances when they were in their teens and he was in his 30s.

Trump revisited the tape amid a mounting number of sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

President Donald Trump is questioning the authenticity of the now infamous "Access Hollywood" recording. "As the article notes, "[Trump] sees the calls for Mr. Moore to step aside as a version of the response to the now-famous "Access Hollywood" tape...and the flood of groping accusations against him that followed soon after".

Moore is beset by sexual misconduct allegations, including by a woman who said Moore assaulted her when she was 14 years old. You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful - I just start kissing them. And when you're a star, they let you do it. He apologized for the vulgarity calling it simply "locker room talk".

The real concern, as Cuomo sees it, is not necessarily with how this particular case will play out with the public - as Trump's Fake News claims on this tape are laughable - but in circumstances where the truth is far less obvious.

"But I couldn't get there", Trump said on the tape. Other high-profile Republicans who have backed away from Moore's candidacy and called the women accusing him credible include Vice President Mike Pence and the president's daughter Ivanka Trump.

But after the tape was released, he famously admitted it was him and kinda, sorta apologized for it (that is, he read a statement like a hostage, one of the incredibly rare instances in which he has actually admitted to ever doing anything wrong). He said the women were lying, and sometimes suggested they were not attractive enough to be sexually assaulted.
