The Washington Post has released video and audio recordings from 2005 of Donald Trump making some pretty lewd comments about women.

In the video, which you can watch here (it contains vulgar language), Trump seemingly bragged about putting the moves on a married woman and trying to sleep with her.

Trump went on to say that he couldn't help but to kiss beautiful women.

"And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything," Trump can be heard saying.

Trump fires back

Shortly after the article was published, Trump released a statement apologizing for his "locker room banter."

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course - not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended,” Trump's statement says.

He also released a video statement on Twitter Friday night, saying, "I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I'm not."

Trump said he regrets what he said in the recording from 2005, and that being on the campaign trail has changed him as a person.

He also pointed the finger at the Clintons and said he'll soon be discussing their relationships with women too.
