NEW YORK - Women and survivors of sexual assault gathered in Manhattan Wednesday morning to blast Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump following the recently surfaced tape from 2005 in which he talks about getting away with anything when it comes to women.

About 50 protesters took part in the demonstration outside Trump Tower in Midtown.

Organizers say Trump and the GOP are responsible for decades of anti-women rhetoric and stances and are demanding elected officials drop their support of the New York billionaire.

"His vicious campaign of hate that's directed against women, against people of color, against immigrants, it's just too much and we have to rise up and say no," said one rally attendee.

In the video, Trump talks in graphic terms about attempting to seduce a married woman.  

Trump, who apologized for the comments most recently at Sunday night's town hall debate, maintains it was "locker room" talk.

Meanwhile, Trump is campaigning in Florida again one day after firing attacks at members of his own party, in addition to rival Hillary Clinton.

During an event in Panama City Tuesday, the Republican nominee said a vote for Clinton is a vote for recklessness.

But he spent most of his day tearing into his party's leadership for its lack of support.

In an interview with Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, Trump specifically ripped House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has said he will not campaign with the billionaire.

"I'm just tired of non-support and I don't really want his support. You know, if he calls now and wants to...this happens all the time. If you sneeze he calls up and announces isn't that a terrible thing. So look, I don't want his support, I don't care about his support. What I want to do is win for the people," Trump said.

The interview came hours after Trump tweeted "It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to."

He also called Ryan "weak and ineffective" and said Democrats are more loyal to each other than Republicans.

President Barack Obama also had some harsh words for the GOP while stumping for Hillary Clinton in North Carolina on Tuesday.

The President blasted Republicans who keep supporting Trump despite the lewd comments about women he made in the 2005 recording.


"You can't have it both ways here. You can't repeatedly denounce what is said by someone and say but I'm still going to endorse them to be the mostly powerful person on the planet and to put them in charge," Obama said.

The President's remarks were interrupted at one point by some protestors.

A man and a woman who appeared to be Trump supporters moved toward the stage and revealed T-shirts that said "Bill Clinton Rapist."

They were quickly escorted out by security.
