Condolezza Rice called on Donald Trump to get out of the presidential race, saying "Enough!" in a Facebook post after the Republican presidential candidate's 2005 off-camera remarks about women were made public, noted The Hill newspaper.

The Washington Post reported on Saturday about a video recording from "Access Hollywood" in which Trump in vulgar appeared to brag about kissing, groping, and trying to have sex with women during a conversation.

Rice responded to that and other recorded comments by Trump on social media, saying he should leave the presidential race.


Rice, secretary of state in George W. Bush's administration, had not been a supporter of Trump and skipped the 2016 Republican National Convention, said The Hill.

Trump apologized for the taped remarks later Saturday, according to The New York Times, as well as Sunday night's debate at Washington University in St. Louis.

"I've never said I'm a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I'm not," Trump said. "I've said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them."

"Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize. I've traveled the country talking about change for America, but my travels have also changed me."

Republican U.S. Sens. Kelly Ayotte, John McCain, Rob Portman, and Lisa Murkowski all said they were no longer supporting Trump after the comments, according to CNN.

The Daily Beast said that while House Speaker Paul Ryan cancelled a joint appearance with Trump and Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio denounced the video, none took back their endorsement for him.
