“I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize,” Trump said. Trump pledged “to be a better man tomorrow” before turning his attention to the other issues of the election. Trump closed by making a distinction between the words he said and how “Bill Clinton has actually abused women.” Although, it is important to note that the “words,” as Trump said, are considered verbal sexual harassment and that verbal sexual harassment is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
