CHATTANOOGA, TN (WJHL) – Tennessee senator Bob Corker says Republican presidential nominee Donald trump’s comments regarding women were “inappropriate and offensive”.
The republican nominee has been on the defensive after lewd comments he made in 2005 were caught on camera and leaked to the public.
In an unprecedented move the Trump campaign issued an apology from Donald Friday saying in part ” This was locker room, banter a private conversation that took place many years ago . . . I apologize if anyone was offended.”
Corker later went on to say that Trump’s apology “was absolutely necessary.”
Corker’s comments come after Trump named senator Corker as part of his national security advisory council.
Across the state many Tennessee Republicans have announced their support for their party’s nominee, Gov. Bill Haslam still won’t say if he’ll vote for Trump.
