ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) American voters are sounding off on Donald Trump's lewd remarks about women. Tourists visiting the Newseum in Washington, D.C. say they were repulsed by the Republican presidential candidate's comments. "It frightens me a little bit because I don't think he has what it takes to run the country," said Kathy Jones of Iowa. Trump issued an apology on Friday after the release of the video in which he was recorded on an open microphone in 2005 talking in vulgar terms about trying to have sex with women. But the apology isn't enough for some Trump supporters who say they will no longer vote for him. "I was a supporter before and as a father of two daughters, even though the Clinton crime family doesn't have an exemplary record of the way to treat women, I'm not so sure I can support him anymore," said Brian Hollowood of New York. Trump vowed on Saturday to remain in the race even as his campaign was thrown into crisis as his own running mate criticized him and some prominent Republicans withdrew support and urged him to drop out.
