WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, The Washington Post published an audio recording from 2005 in which Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is heard saying lewd, demeaning comments about women. Latino Victory Fund interim director, César J. Blanco, released the following statement:

“We are appalled and disturbed by Trump’s disgusting, piggish comments towards women,” said César J. Blanco, Latino Victory Fund interim director. “Trump is not pathologically capable of treating women like human beings. His misogynistic behavior is a disturbing pattern that we have seen time and time again and that we cannot continue to tolerate or ignore. If we ignore his attacks against women, we will certainly undo decades of hard work and hard-fought battles for women’s rights. Our nation cannot thrive and prosper if women’s civil rights are not guaranteed, and we all have the responsibility to condemn Trump and any man who threatens women’s rights.

“We cannot stand idly by while Trump continues spewing comments that objectify and dehumanize women. This November, women across the nation will remember that Trump is a sexist, misogynistic bigot and they will make sure that he never sets foot in the White House.”
