“We don’t think that was my voice,” Donald Trump told a Republican senator shortly before his inauguration, according to The New York Times. “Since then,” reports The Times, “Mr. Trump has continued to suggest that the tape that nearly upended his campaign was not actually him, according to three people close to the president. As the issue of sexual harassment has swept through the news media, politics and entertainment industries, Mr. Trump has persisted in denying allegations that he, too, made unwanted advances on multiple women in past years. In recent days, he has continued to seed doubt about his appearance on the Access Hollywood tape, stunning his advisers.” ALSO: The Washington Post reports that "Trump has occasionally told senior advisers that the Access Hollywood tape could be fabricated or may not be real"
