In the Access Hollywood tape, which was released on this very day 12 months ago, Trump says: "You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful β€” I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."

β€œGrab them by the pussy,” Trump adds. β€œYou can do anything.”

Upon the tape's release, amid the heated final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump dismissed the remarks.

"This was locker room banter, a private conservation that took place many years ago," he said in a statement last October.

Trump also said on Saturday that he was "not at all surprised" by the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, saying that he has known the filmmaker "for a long time."
