Earlier this month, the Republican presidential nominee was bombarded with several sexual assault allegations, with some of the women alleging that he sexually assaulted them decades ago.

The republican poll campaign has been hit hard with recent scandals such as the leaked video footage of Trump or women alleging sexual abuse.

It all began when a video with Trump using derogatory words for women surfaced. He was also spotted boasting about sexual assault. The video came as a major blow to Trump's campaign with various voices rising against him within the party as well.

Another woman came forward last week claiming that Donald Trump groped her and made inappropriate sexual remarks, adding to accusations of nine other women that have emerged in recent days.
