Donald Trump sex tape: Impacts on Donald Trump Politics and Married life

Updated On 13 Jul, 2017 Published On

The way history shows, when it comes to drawing media speculation and creating controversies, celebrities and politicians are on the top. It has become a fact, once you hit the limelight you will highly be surrounded by controversies and there's very minimal way out of that.

All in all, it shows there's a never-ending relationship between politicians and media like of nail and flesh, but not always in a possible pleasing way. It breaks you so hard some of the times that it's difficult for you to get up from the impact. The same thing happened with the US President, Donald Trump.

Trump has caught lots of controversies from the moment he became president, from the month of January 2017. Thereby making him the most controversial politician in the United States to be elected as the president.

Also, before being the 45th President of the United States, Trump had been surrounded by many controversies and those controversies haven't left him till date. And indeed he is "the most controversial politician." Here we bring you the 2005 incident where Trump was linked with a controversial sex tape. Let's see if that has made an impact on his political career and married life.

A Leaked Video of Trump

Two days earlier of the second presidential debate, a video back from 2005 was leaked on the Washington Post's website, where Trump appeared in a vulgar way, detailing his attempt to bed a married woman and bragging that he can grope women because he is a celebrity. A low-class attempt by a man of his standard, isn't it?

Less than an hour later, Wikileaks published more than 2,000 emails from what appeared to be the personal account of the chairman; John Podesta, of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. The emails marked the latest results of a hacking operation on internal Democratic Party communications.

And even John Podesta's private and largely inside-baseball notes to Clinton could not save Donald Trump from the lashing he was to fall in. So, did this scandalous video make any impact on Trump's life?

Impact of the Leaked Sex Tape on Trump's Political Life

Soon after the release of Trump's sex tape, Republican leaders began to abandon Trump. Trump's presidential campaign was on the verge of undermining the whole of the Republican ticket, a group of senators and House members withdrew support from Trump, with some demanding that Trump should step aside of the presidency. But, Trump vowed to stay in.

A list of party figures publicly rejected Donald Trump including a host of prominent elected officials, most notably Senator John McCain of Arizona. But even after all the controversies, it couldn't trouble his way to the presidency. Eventually, Trump was elected as the 45th president of the United States of America.

Later Mr. McCain said in a statement;

I thought it is important I respect the fact that Mr. Trump won a majority of the delgated by the rules of our party set.

He further added;

But Donald Trump's behavior, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comment about women and his boasts about sexual assault, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy.

Despite the fact he won the presidency, the leaked video kept him in conflicts with many of the politicians.

The Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana, rejecting Trump's invitation to a party gathering in Wisconsin offered Trump something of an ultimatum.

I do not condem his remarks and cannot defend them. We pray for his family and look forward to the opportunity he has to show what is in his heart when he goes before the nation tommrow night.

The growing wall of opposition recalled the determination of the party establishment to deny Mr.Trump. The leaked sex tape didn't make much of an impact on Trump's political career, but he was in some way tried to pull down by his oppositions and protestors. In the end, it did not matter and looks like Trump doesn't even care.

After Trump's divorce with Marla, Trump dated Slovenia-born Melania Knauss for quite a long time which turned to marriage in January 2005. In 2006 they had a son, Barron William Trump. Barron has a very close relationship with his father Donald Trump and they like to spend their time together.

The leaked video of Donald Trump put him in lots of controversies for his political life.

The leaked sex tape and Trump's marriage with Melania happened in the same year, 2005. But above all the facts on Donald Trump, his relationship with Melania Knauss is doing it's best. The couple may have had some conflicts regarding the incident back from 2005, but the couple should have sorted it out as there came no conflict stories between the two. 

Apart from Trump's relationship with Ivana, Marla and his present wife Melania he is also reported to be in a relationship with Kim Richards. So, we can say, Trump is a man who pulls controversies to his side more often than not, and the leaked sex tape isn't the only time he was dragged into a controversy. More than the leaked video, he comes into the limelight for his arrogant behavior and links up with different girls.
