Donald Trump's 2005 comments about women have lost him the support of some, but not billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

"Over my years I've listened to a lot of salacious talk in locker rooms, bachelor parties, et cetera, by a lot of high-level people, some of whom are now supposedly so outraged," Icahn said to CNBC.com in an interview. "All I can do is refer to that great quote, 'Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.'"

"It's amazing that everyone is outraged by something that everyone knows is going on in every locker room in the country," he said.

Trump dismissed his taped comments during the debate as "locker room talk," and focused on former president Bill Clinton's alleged actions.

"If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse: mine are words, his was action," Trump said, according to Time Magazine. "This is what he has done to women. There's never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women, so you can say any way you want to say it, but Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them viciously."

"I thought Donald made a number of great points in the debate last night," Icahn said in the interview. "Today it is perceived that government is at war with business. This perception must be changed, and it is certainly not being changed by Hillary Clinton.

"It is imperative that many changes in Washington must be made," he added. "I am therefore still obviously behind Donald Trump."

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced on Monday that he has abandoned Trump and is now focused solely on maintaining the Republican majority in the House.

"The speaker is going to spend the next month focused entirely on protecting our congressional majorities," Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong told The Washington Post, adding that "there is no update in his position at this time" regarding Ryan's endorsement of Trump.
