The storm over Donald Trump’s views on women is set to intensify after the married US presidential hopeful allegedly said he’d have “no problem” having sex with 24-year-olds and that reaching 35 meant it was “check-out time” for a woman.
CNN has discovered unreported audio recordings spanning a 17-year period of Trump being interviewed by ‘shock-jock’ radio host Howard Stern.
It says they include Trump discussing: “His daughter Ivanka’s physique, having sex with women on their menstrual cycles, threesomes, and checking out of a relationship with women after they turn 35.”
In the tapes, Trump calls his daughter Ivanka “voluptuous” and doesn’t object when Stern referrs to her as a “piece of ass”.
The broadcaster published extracts from the recordings and warned that they contained “graphic language” and show Trump has engaged in “sexually explicit banter” for years.
“Your daughter... can I say this? A piece of ass,” Stern asks Trump in a 2004 radio show recording.
“Yeah,” Trump responds.
Trump says in one 2002 recording, when he was around 56, that he had dated women aged around 21 but it was “embarrassing” because they would be “studying algebra”.
He says 30 was the “perfect age” for a woman, and Stern jokes that by the time women reach 35 women they have had “too much life experience”.
To which Trump responds: “What is it at 35 Howard? It’s called check-out time.”
In another 2010 recording, Stern calls Trump “the greatest judge of beauty on this planet” and said he’d like to create a TV show starring Trump “where all you did was just judge women”.
“Now that may be the best idea of all... I would say I’m the all-time judge,” Trump replies.
In one 2006 interview, Stern says Trump’s daughter Ivanka “looks more voluptuous than ever,” and the pair discuss whether she has breast implants. “She’s actually always been very voluptuous,” Trump says. “She’s tall, she’s almost 6 feet tall and she’s been, she’s an amazing beauty.”
Another clip shows Stern asking Trump in 1997, “What did you have last night,” apparently referring to women, and then: “Have you ever had a black woman in bed?”
“Well, it depends on what your definition of black is,” Trump says.
“Interesting. I like this discussion. His bed is a rainbow,” Stern says. “The rainbow coalition, as Reverend Jesse would say,” Trump says.
Trump also revealed in the same interview that he had lost his virginity at 14 to “a young woman, who was really beautiful... the hot little girl in high school or grammar school or whatever”.
He also discusses threesomes with Stern, saying he had had threesomes because: “Haven’t we all... are we babies?”
He also claims he had had sex with two women at once, collectively weighing 375 pounds, after Stern asked him if he had had sex with “a fat woman”.
In a separate 2006 clip Trump, then 60, says that if he wasn’t married he’d be able to “get all of the girls I want”.When asked if he could “now be banging 24-year-olds?” he says: “Oh, absolutely... I’d have no problem,” Trump said.
Stern asked Trump if he has an age limit for women he’s sleep with. “No, I have no age — I mean, I have age limit. I don’t want to be like Congressman Foley, with, you know, 12-year-olds,” Trump replies.
The revelations follow a 2005 video tape which has drawn widespread criticism after it showed Trump, who was newly married to his third wife, Melania, talking about trying to sleep with a married woman as well as saying he would grope women because “when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Trump dismissed the comments as “locker room banter” issuing an apology for the remarks.
Interim Ukip leader Nigel Farage has waded into the crisis insisting the Republican candidate’s remarks about groping women amounted to “alpha male boasting”.
