DONALD TRUMP’S ATTEMPT to become President of the United States has been full of controversies.

The Republican candidate has insulted many along the way, including women, African Americans and Mexicans. His bid to call the White House his home continued despite all this.

However, recently leaked comments he made in 2005 – where he boasted about sexually assaulting women - may be the beginning of the end for his campaign, with Hillary Clinton making serious gains in recent polls.

Several prominent Republicans are refusing to back Trump, with many calling on him to step down and be replaced by vice presidential nominee Mike Pence. However, this looks unlikely.

What do you think: Should Donald Trump withdraw from the US Presidential race?
