Trump vows "zero chance" he'll quit race

Posted: Updated:

Donald Trump says he will not quit the presidential race.

The Republican presidential nominee told The Washington Post on Saturday morning, "I'd never withdraw. I've never withdrawn in my life."

He also told The Wall Street Journal there was "zero chance I'll quit."

The comments come as a growing number of Republican officeholders call on Trump to leave the race.

Trump said he's been getting calls of support after a video tape surfaced Friday that captured him making vulgar and sexually charged comments about women.

He tweets just before 11 a.m.: "Certainly has been an interesting 24 hours!"

It was his first comment since releasing a video in which he apologized for his lewd comments unearthed in a 2005 video. The tweet comes amid nearly universal condemnation of those remarks, in which Trump was caught in an off-camera conversation speaking in vulgar terms about women.

Some Republican members of Congress are calling for him to withdraw from the race as the GOP struggles to keep its congressional majority.

It's unclear whether Trump will make any public appearances before Sunday's second debate with Clinton in St. Louis. Trump is not attending a previously scheduled event Saturday in Wisconsin with running mate Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
