Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a crowd on Feb. 11 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that he was going to stop using foul language (video below).
“I won’t use foul language,” Trump stated. “They're all saying, 'Do it, do it.' No."
Trump pointed to a woman in the audience who didn't want him to use profanity.
"Even if it's not a bad word, if it's a little bit off, they kill me, so I won't do it. I'll never do it again, actually," Trump added.
Trump also said he'll never copy what someone asks him to say if it includes a profanity, notes The Hill.
On Nov. 12, 2015, Trump promised to “bomb the s---” out of ISIS. On Feb. 8, Trump sparked outrage for echoing a supporter who called Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas a "p----."
Cruz and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida have criticized Trump for his profanity, according to Talking Points Memo.
"I'm not sure a lot of voters are excited about having a president, who when he gets rattled, when gets upset, begins cursing and yelling vulgarities," Cruz told the media in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
"I teach my kids to be respectful," Rubio said at a town hall in Okatie, South Carolina. "There are certain words you don't say. No matter what setting you're in, act with dignity and hold yourself up."
