A women's group is playing the Trump 'Access Hollywood' tape on loop by the White House


A woman's advocacy group on Friday is playing a controversial 2005 tape of now-President Trump making lewd, sexually aggressive remarks about women on a continuous, 12-hour loop near the White House.

Ultraviolet said in a statement that the footage is airing on a giant screen on Constitution Avenue - between the White House and the National Mall - from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. local time.

The broadcast will occur in conjunction with the "Rally to Grab Back" outside the White House, which will protest the Trump's administration's policies regarding sexual assault survivors and women.

"The Donald Trump on that tape is the same Donald Trump that sits in the Oval Office every day, aggressively pursuing an anti-woman agenda, including the active dismantling of legal protections for survivors of sexual assault," Ultraviolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas said in a statement.

"That is why we are showing the video on loop in DC, and that is why it is all the more important that we stand up and 'grab back.'"

Trump was recorded in 2005 during a taping of NBC Universal's "Access Hollywood" discussing groping and kissing women without their consent.

The recording's emergence in October 2016 is widely regarded as one of the biggest controversies swirling around Trump's election campaign before he won the presidency.
