The GOP presidential nominee told the Wall Street Journal on Saturday there’s “zero chance I'll quit,” as calls grow from Republicans for him to exit the race following leaked audio revealing Trump making obscene sexual remarks in 2005.

Trump released a video late Friday night apologizing for the lewd remarks.
“I never said I’m a perfect person nor pretended to be someone I’m not,” Trump said in the video. “I’ve said and done things I regret and the words released today on this more than decade-old video are one of them. These words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize.”
