NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Geraldo Rivera claims that he has tapes that could be “embarrassing” for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Rivera made the revelation on Fox News before Sunday night’s presidential debate.
“I’ve interviewed Trump many times, been with him many times. There’s tape that I have,” the Fox News personality said.
Rivera added that he and his brother, Craig Rivera, have been poring over the tapes.
“My brother and I have just been starting to go through the tapes now, and there are some statements, that in the context of the current climate, would be embarrassing,” Geraldo Rivera said.
Trump apologized for remarks that he made in a 2005 interview with “Access Hollywood” where he bragged about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women who were not his wife.
The tape showed host Billy Bush and Trump speaking as the Republican was about to appear on the daytime drama “Days of Our Lives.” From the bus they had ridden to the set, Bush pointed out to Trump an actress, Arianne Zucker, who was there to greet them.
Bush called the actress “hot,” adding an expletive.
“I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump said. “You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful … I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Grab them by the p—-. You can do anything,” Trump added.
CNN also unearthed audio of several appearances Trump made on Howard Stern’s radio show where he agreed with the shock jock that his daughter, Ivanka Trump, was a “piece of a**” and that he would go backstage during the Miss Universe pageant when contestants were getting changed.
At a rally Monday in Pennsylvania, Trump said former President Bill Clinton was “the worst abuser of women” to ever sit in the Oval Office. He claimed the media “condemned my words” but ignored what Clinton did.
He said the “last 72 hours has framed what this election is all about.”
He said that it’s about the “American people fighting back against corrupt politicians who don’t care about anything except for staying in power.”
During Sunday night’s presidential debate, Trump said Hillary Clinton attacked women “viciously” who have accused her husband of sexual assault.
