Mr Pence's wife Karen was even more disgusted and called Mr Trump "reprehensible - just totally vile", the USA magazine the Atlantic reported.

The report also alleged that Pence and other Republicans planned a coup in the aftermath of the revelation, but Trump managed to deflect attention away from the matter by bringing three women who had accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault or harassment to a debate with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in St. Louis. The Atlantic reports that it's unclear whether Trump had knowledge of the conversation and if the group ever made an offer.

In response, Mike Pence's Press Secretary Alyssa Farah called the Atlantic's story a "tired, false claim". The article notes that GOP officials were considering running a ticket with Pence in the lead and Condoleezza Rice as the new vice presidential nominee, and that then-RNC chairman and future White House chief of staff Reince Priebus told Trump to "either drop out immediately or lose in a historic landslide". Some commentators called on Karen Pence to go public with her criticism.
