ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says the Republican presidential nominee is not dropping out of the race after a video was released in which he was recorded talking in vulgar terms about trying to have sex with women. Conway arrived at Trump Tower in New York City on Saturday when she was asked by a reporter, "Any truth that he's dropping out?" Conway replied, "No." Trump himself vowed to remain in the race even as his campaign was thrown into crisis as his running mate criticized him and more than a dozen prominent Republicans withdrew support and urged him to drop out following news of a recording of him making lewd comments in 2005. Trump told the Wall Street Journal on Saturday morning "zero chance I'll quit." He also told The Washington Post he may deliver a speech Saturday afternoon to address concern among supporters and reiterate his determination to stay in the race. The video was the latest calamity for Trump, who had hoped to revive his flagging campaign in the face of a recent drop in polls with less than a month until Election Day. The 2005 video of Trump talking on an open microphone showed the then-reality TV star speaking openly about groping women and trying to seduce a married woman. The video was taped only months after Trump married his third wife, Melania.
