If anyone has access to Trump or his campaign staff, I would like to offer the following statement to him. I submit that it would go further to getting him elected than anything he is currently saying. If it’s sincere.
My Fellow Citizens,
I come to you today with a genuine humility. I want you to know that in the past I have behaved very poorly. As a younger man I allowed my wealth and fame to go to my head resulting in me looking at women more as objects than people deserving of every respect. I said and did things in line with that way of thinking that I now deeply regret. I was prideful, cavalier, often mean and spiteful. The remnants of some of that behavior has followed me even till now. But here it stops. Some of these things you have already heard about and in all likelihood there will be more to come before this election. I find it all a sad reminder of a past I no longer want to be associated with. Many women have been offended by my words and actions. I want to say to you that I apologize – not “if” you are offended but because I know I was wrong. My dear wife and daughter are helping me to see just how painful many of my words and actions have been. Let me use a word from the Bible that I am learning. Repentance. To repent is to “turn around” and I am repenting. I’m turning away from my juvenile and vulgar attitudes regarding women. My friends, I want to be a champion for every American regardless of gender, race or creed. I know full well that not one of us is perfect and I have no desire to dwell in the gutter of personal attacks any longer. I will no longer bring up the indiscretions and sins of other men to defend my poor behavior. I will speak only of my ideas and goals as I believe they are better in the long run for this great land. This election is a crossroads. The Supreme Court is on the line, religious liberty is in danger, small businesses are being strangled by over regulation, jobs are fleeing our shores, our inner cities are suffering, and we face the cruel reality of those who want to bring terror and destruction to the world in the name of a radical ideology. We must act now or we risk losing so much. I offer you no excuses. I simply dedicate myself to being a different kind of man. A man you can be proud of. I ask you to pray for me, for this great land, and be sure to vote in this election. Thank you.
