Donald Trump, under fire for using a vulgar word that refers to a woman’s body part, said Saturday that he has used profanity in speeches previously, but would not do so again.
“Over the years I’ve made many speeches, big companies have asked me to make speeches…. And on occasion, in order to sort of really highlight something, I use a profanity,” he said during the GOP debate.
On Monday, during a rally in New Hampshire, Trump repeated an obscenity that a woman in the audience screamed out to describe Sen. Ted Cruz. Rivals such as Jeb Bush pounced, arguing that such language in front of an audience that included children was not statesmanlike.
