Despite the fact that there's no evidence such a video exists.>> A tape was made, right?

Because they want to embarrass our country.>> He first made the claim Wednesday leading news organizations to scramble looking for it but to no avail. Trump Spokeswoman Hope Hicks telling the Washington Post Trump was actually referring to this video from Fox News.

Then Thursday afternoon Trump brings it up again. Prompting major networks like MSNBC to point out, in a graphic that, Trump is referring into a, quote, non existent tape.
