It shouldn't come as a surprise that Donald Trump is once again back in the headlines. Ever since he announced his candidacy for president, Trump has come under-fire for making controversial comments, as his latest remarks are no exception.

Trump on Paris

One of the most talked about moments from the first presidential debate was when Hillary Clinton brought up Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe who was forced to deal with public body shaming at the hands of the billionaire real estate mogul. In the last few days since the debate, Trump has decided to ramp up his attacks on Clinton and Machado, going as far as encouraging his supporters to find an alleged sex tape from the former beauty queen.

Despite no evidence that a tape exists, Trump continued to stand by his comments, referring to Machado as a "con." As reported by The Huffington Post on September 30, it appears ironic that Trump would attack Machado for taking part in a sex video, when he has been quoted in the past that he has watched them himself.

During an interview with Howard Stern in 2003, Trump brought up how attractive he thought Paris Hilton was, even at a young age. "The first time I saw her she walked into a room and I said, 'Who the hell is that?'" Trump told Stern, noting that Hilton was just 12-years-old at the time.

After Stern inquired about whether or not Trump wanted to "bang" the 12-year-old Hilton, and the billionaire real estate mogul responded. "At 12, I wasn't interested," Trump said, going on to note that he likes women in the "25 category," but did comment that Hilton was "beautiful."

When asked by Stern if he had watched the infamous Paris Hilton sex tape, Trump admitted, "I have seen it," and said that his wife Melania was the one who had him watch it.

Trump went on to observe that the sex video "made Paris hotter in terms of the world," before referring to the incident as "unfortunate."

Moving forward

As has become routine with the Trump campaign, controversy has led him to the front page. Though the former host of "The Apprentice" was able to ride that wave of success to the Republican nomination, it hasn't played as well with a general election audience.

Trump is currently trailing by three points on a national level, and will get a second shot to make an impression at the next debate on October 9.
