NEW YORK (WCMH)– NBC News has obtained audio footage of a candid exchange between Donald Trump and Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush in 2005.

NBC News says the conversation occurred shortly after Trump married his third wife, Melania.

In the audio, Trump can be heard telling Bush about a married woman he tried to seduce.

“I moved on her actually, she was down in Palm Beach and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try to f*** her, she was married … and I moved on her very heavily,” Trump is heard saying.

Trump tells Bush that his star status gives him the right to do “anything” to women.

“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet,” he said. “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab ’em by the p****.”

“This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course — not even close,” Trump said in a prepared statement. “I apologize if anyone was offended.”
