Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant sticks with Trump
JACKSON - Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says Donald Trump's remarks about women are unacceptable but stopped short of withdrawing support for the GOP presidential nominee's White House bid.
In a statement Saturday, Bryant said Trump's comments "do not square with the man I have gotten to know the past few months. He has done the right thing and apologized."
In a video, Trump apologized saying he was wrong and had said foolish things, but words and actions aren't the same thing. He called the comments a distraction and pointed to the behavior of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Republican Lt Gov. Tate Reeves said Saturday on Twitter that Trump's remarks about women are "reprehensible and outside the bounds of decency."
Reeves said he hopes Trump's apology is sincere.
