WASHINGTON (AP) — The season’s second presidential debate, which happens in primetime tonight at Washington University in St. Louis, is shadowed by the growing controversy surrounding Republican nominee Donald Trump.

The billionaire real estate mogul is pledging to stay in the hunt for the White House despite an uproar over newly disclosed remarks he made about women.

Trump vowed in capital letters on Twitter Saturday to “never drop of out the race.” He said the media and establishment politicians want him out but that he won’t “let my supporters down.”

Trump has remained in Trump Tower in New York meeting with key aides and preparing for the face-off Sunday evening against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Many Republicans have called for Trump to abandon his campaign in the wake of the release of a 2005 video in which he makes lewd remarks about women and appears to condone sexual assault.

Trump released a video statement in the early moments of Saturday in which he offered an apology for the remakes and pivoted to attack on Hillary Clinton and her husband.
