US presidential candidate Donald Trump has said he will not withdraw from the race in phone interviews with US media.

Mr Trump has been under pressure after a tape of him making lewd sexual comments and bragging about groping and kissing women emerged on Friday.

He told the Wall Street Journal there was “zero chance I’ll quit” and he was getting “unbelievable” support.

Top Republicans condemned his remarks in the video. Mr Trump’s election rival Hillary Clinton called them “horrific”.

His running mate Mike Pence said he was “offended” by Mr Trump’s video but grateful he had expressed remorse and apologised to the American people.

“We pray for his family” he said in a statement.

In the recorded comments, which date back to 2005 when Mr Trump was appearing as a guest on a soap, he says “you can do anything” to women “when you’re a star” and is heard saying “grab them by the pussy”.

The candidate released a video statement apologising for the comments.

After some Republican lawmakers called on Mr Trump to step down as candidate, the billionaire told the Washington Post later on Saturday:

“I’d never withdraw. I’ve never withdrawn in my life.”

“Certainly has been an interesting 24 hours!” Mr Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
