Attorney General Pam Bondi broke her silence Friday over Donald Trump, calling his comments about women “disgusting” but that she remains a supporter.

"I believe the statements that Donald Trump says are disgusting. Disgusting, period," Bondi said a luncheon with the Florida Federation of Republican Women in Pasco County.

"I have spoken to him multiple times (and) he believes what he said was disgusting. He is horrified, apologetic and as Gov. Pence, as Mike Pence, a great man said, he's an evangelical Christian, I believe in forgiveness. I believe what Donald Trump said was disgusting. I also believe in the Constitution of the United States of America."

Bondi's comments were captured by ABC Action News, which has video. It was the first time she had commented since the 2005 video of Trump making sexually aggressive comments surfaced.

Since the video came out, a growing number of women have come forward to say Trump made unwanted advances.
