Following Sunday night's debate, the number of Republicans bailing on Trump continue to mount, with Paul Ryan the latest in a string of national names.
I need hardly recount the long list of offensive things that Donald Trump has said - and that we've seen on video - that passed through the news cycle without the same Republican response.
"I think contrition is all he can do to try and save this".
"They're harmful when you have to hear them, but they're not physically harmful", said Charlotte Rasmussen, president of the Wisconsin Federation of Republican Women. "That does not make people bad".
Democrats in NY are trying to keep the heat on Republicans running for office over the coarse remarks made by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in a leaked video.
An unsparing Trump campaign ad released Monday showed Hillary Clinton when she had pneumonia last month, coughing at the dais and stumbling as she tried to get into her motorcade after a 9/11 anniversary ceremony.
Idaho Senator Mike Crapo, who is up for re-election, on Saturday became the first sitting Republican senator to back away from Trump following the incendiary comments. Even before the recording of his remarks were made public, the businessman was lagging behind Clinton after an undisciplined first debate and struggling to overcome deep skepticism among women about his temperament and qualifications to be commander in chief. "No congressman puts people on the Supreme Court, the President of the United States does that" said Long. "That's the bottom line".
Ryan, the speaker of the House of Representatives, would instead use the next 29 days before the presidential election focusing on preserving his party's hold on Congress, according to five lawmakers, who spoke on condition of anonymity. But by all appearances, that's just fine with Donald Trump.
Trump immediately struck a defiant tone, telling two newspapers he would never quit. "We are going to devote every ounce of effort and resource into helping the Trump-Pence ticket win and all the other candidates up and down the ballot".
Later, Pence told a Rhode Island fundraiser that he was committed to Trump.
"There's serious issues here", Peay said.
Top Trump surrogate Ben Carson said "in no way do I condone Trump's behaviour" but he was "fairly certain" progressives knew about the magnate's 2005 remarks but waited until now to damage his candidacy.
"Dr. Joe Heck, who's in a very tight Senate race, went out on stage yesterday and denounced Donald Trump and got booed over and over again".
"I'm very proud of Utah. And I think the Republican politicians in this state have to condemn the activity, condemn the verbiage - silence is acceptance and no New Yorker should accept what was said here." . "The Republican Party needs solidarity".
"They don't want to disavow Trump at the risk of alienating his supporters", Burbank said.
"In the grand scheme of things, this is trivia vs. real life-and-death problems that we face in our foreign policy and the serious challenges that everyday Americans face because of the Obama-Clinton economy".
Burbank said while there may be "a little bit of a backlash" for Republicans who don't back their party's presidential pick, voters also recognize what an unusual situation this is. "The only way to rebuke this is to vote", she repeated. The revelations have led to an all-out war within the Republican Party, with some members disavowing the GOP nominee and others "tying themselves in tightening knots in an attempt to argue that touching women's genitalia without consent, as described by.Trump, does not constitute sexual assault", as the Guardian wrote.
