Trump huddling with close advisers in New York

Donald Trump is huddling with a close circle of advisers in New York, a day after damaging revelations about his comments about women.
    
Most of his campaign staff and network of supporters were left in the dark about the fast-moving developments.
    
A person close to the Trump operation who spoke on condition of anonymity said staff calls were canceled and surrogates were not given guidance on how to respond to the controversy. The person insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal campaign dynamics publicly.
    
The campaign was reeling from a 2005 recording first reported by The Washington Post and NBC News in which Trump speaks in vulgar terms about women and his aggressive behavior toward them. Trump has since apologized and vowed to stay in the race. But a growing list of Republican officeholders is calling on him to quit the race.
    
The upheaval comes on the eve of the second debate between Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton – and less than five weeks before Election Day.
    
Earlier, Trump told The Washington Post, "I’d never withdraw. I’ve never withdrawn in my life."
    
He also told The Wall Street Journal there was "zero chance I’ll quit."
