Last night was the second 2016 presidential debate, which was hosted by ABC News' Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper at Washington University in St. Louis. Over this past weekend, a number of Republicans have withdrawn their endorsements from Republican nominee Donald Trump. This comes after the releasement of a 2005 video where Trump brags about sexually assaulting women. During the debate, Trump commented on the recording stating, "This was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it. I apologized to my family. I apologized to the American people. Certainly I'm not product of it. But this is locker room talk." Trump also stated during the debate that he has never sexually assaulted women. In response, Clinton stated that the recording reveals Trump's true character. For more on the story, visit ABC News.
