Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer issued statements on Donald Trump’s crude conversation that was revealed on Saturday.

Ducey did not address whether or not he was still supporting Trump in the statement.

“The comments by Donald Trump are insulting and terribly demeaning to women, and I disavow them 100 percent. They are completely unacceptable. Angela and I have three boys and we work hard every day to raise them the right way and to have the utmost respect for women. We should demand the same from our leaders, especially those who want to occupy the White House, the highest office in the land.”

Brewer, meanwhile, will keep supporting Trump, saying in her statement, “withdrawing my support from Donald Trump – our Republican nominee – would simply not be doing the right thing for our country.”

Many Republicans have withdrawn their support of Trump, including Sen. John McCain.

A defiant Trump insisted Saturday he would “never” abandon his White House bid, rejecting a growing backlash from Republican leaders nationwide who disavowed the GOP’s presidential nominee.

His party in chaos, Trump spent Saturday with a close circle of advisers in his campaign’s midtown Manhattan headquarters. Among them: former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said calls for Trump to bow out are simply the “wishful thinking of the Clinton campaign and those people who have opposed him for a long time.”
