Trump unleashes attacks during first post-debate rally in Pa.

Posted: Updated:

At his first post-debate campaign stop in battleground Pennsylvania, Donald Trump was in full attack mode against his opponent.

Hundreds of supporters began lining up outside Ambridge Area Senior High at around 10:00 a.m. to get a glimpse of the candidate at his late afternoon stop. 

Halfway through his speech, Trump brought up the criticism surrounding his leaked hot mic comments recorded back in 2005.

The Republican presidential candidate told his supporters that if more of his words are scrutinized, then he won't relent on his attack against Bill Clinton and his past regarding women.

"If they want to release more tapes saying more inappropriate things, we'll continue to talk about Bill and Hillary Clinton doing inappropriate things," Trump said. 

The latest NBC News/Survey Monkey Poll shows 63 percent of likely voters do not think Trump respects women. 

Several of his female supporters say the comments overheard in the leaked interview with Access Hollywood won't budge their backing of Trump.

"When he's in public and when he's doing his show, he's outrageous, he's been known to be outrageous and anyone that's offended by him begin outrageous doesn't understand it," Cathy Manalo said, of Upper St. Clair, Pa.

Some women told 21 News they talked the matter over with their husbands at home and understand the comments to be considered locker room talk.

"Guys are guys, guys say stupid things, he apologized," Robbin Straughter said, of Ambridge, Pa. "He got my vote, Trump, Trump, Trump!"

Trump talked about bringing back steel jobs to cities like Ambridge, Pa., which was built on an economy supported by the steel industry. 

U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly spoke before the rally started. He believes Trump will perform well in western Pennsylvania counties, including Mercer and Erie counties, where Kelly tells 21 News the candidate is resonating with blue collar workers.
