Joe Biden is accusing Donald Trump of sexual assault.
The vice-president slammed Trump's comments about women in a tweet Saturday evening.
The GOP nominee was caught on a hot mic in 2005 saying stars could 'do anything' to women, including grabbing them 'by the p***y'.
'The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It's not lewd. It's sexual assault,' Biden wrote.
Vice-president Joe Biden (pictured on Friday) referred to Donald Trump's comments about grabbing women 'by the p***y' as sexual assault in a tweet Saturday
Biden wrote on his Twitter account that Trump's remarks and the behavior he described were not just 'lewd' but demeaning and represented an abuse of power
John McCain also used the words 'sexual assault' to characterize Trump's comments on Saturday.
The Arizona senator was one of at least 73 Republican officials who disavowed their nominee after his comments were revealed on Friday.
'I have wanted to support the candidate our party nominated,' McCain said in a statement Saturday.
'But Donald Trump's behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy.'
McCain said he and his wife would instead 'write in the name of some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be president'.
The GOP nominee (pictured last month) has lost the support of at least 73 Republican officials since his demeaning remarks surfaced Friday
A video published on Friday by the Washington Post shows Trump arriving to film a cameo on Days Of Our Lives.
The footage includes his conversation with Billy Bush.
'You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait,' Trump said.
'And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.
'Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.'
Even Trump's wife Melania condemned the comments, calling them offensive and unacceptable.
Trump tried to dismiss his comments as 'locker-room banter' and eventually apologized.
John McCain (pictured last month next to Ted Cruz) also used the words 'sexual assault' to characterize Trump's comments on Saturday and pledged not to vote for him
