As the US presidential election draws nearer, more and more controversies have been making headlines, especially those involving the ever-controversial Donald Trump.
The latest news about the 70-year-old politician has dragged the name of Arianne Zucker, the woman whom he reportedly got attracted to.
Did he ever dream of having an affair with the 42-year-old “Days of Our Lives” actress?
In a 2005 video published last week by Washington Post, Donald Trump was heard bragging about his supposed masochism, while highlighting his desire for women, including sex.
While talking to Billy Bush, who was then hosting “Access Hollywood,” the father of Ivanka Trump was caught on tape while using lewd language to describe such longing for physical contact with the women he got attracted to.
When they noticed Arianne Zucker, who was reportedly around to accompany them to the set of “Days of Our Lives,” the President wanna-be exclaimed, “I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her.”
Donald Trump even claimed that when he wanted to kiss someone, he never waited to get any sign of agreement from the woman. He just did it because he reportedly knew that “when you’re a star, they let you do it.”
“You can do anything,” he added.
With the said conversation now out, the real estate mogul had to explain.
“I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize,” he said via a short video his camp released.
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not,” Donald Trump continued. “I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them.”
Despite admitting his mistake, he did not fail to point out that the move to release the recording was “a distraction from the issues we are facing today.”
In the meantime, People reported that “DOOL” star Arianne Zucker refused to comment on the issue, as she noted that “it’s not about me.”
Back in 2005, the actress had the chance to work with Donald Trump when he appeared for a cameo role in the NBC daytime drama.
