At a time when President Donald Trump is trying to question the authenticity of the infamous Access Hollywood tape, on which he bragged about "grabbing women by the pussy," a report has emerged which says he used the derogatory word to describe a woman during an interview for a magazine profile.

According to a Daily Beast report, he told a reporter of the now-defunct Maximum Golf magazine in 2000 that “there is nothing in the world like first-rate pussy.”

Former journalist Michael Corcoran, who was writing the profile, said Trump made the comment at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida to describe a “young socialite,” who caught his eyes, the report said.

However, the comment never made it to print, despite Corcoran using the quote as the kicker in his piece. He said the obscenity was replaced with the word "talent" by the editor in chief of the magazine.

Former Maximum Golf editor Joe Bargmann, who worked with Corcoran, confirmed the reporter’s account.

“I was asked to change the last word of the story from ‘pussy.’ When I refused, my top editor changed the quote,” Bargmann told the Beast.

The Daily Beast said it was yet to get a comment from the White House about the report.

It may be noted that recently Trump has reportedly expressed doubt over the veracity of the Access Hollywood tape, on which he was caught making vulgar comments about women.

A New York Times report said Trump “suggested to a senator earlier this year that it was not authentic, and repeated that claim to an adviser more recently.” He reportedly told one Republican senator shortly before his inauguration in January, “We don’t think that was my voice.”

Just weeks before the 2016 presidential election, Trump’s campaign was badly hit after the tape was published by the Washington Post in which he boasted about grabbing women’s genitals.

In the tape, Trump can be heard telling radio and television host Billy Bush that “women let you do anything to them when you are a star," including letting you "grab them by the pussy."

Back then, he verified the authenticity of the tape and apologized for his “locker room talk.” Hours after its release, the then-candidate Trump made a public statement apologizing for his comments.

"Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong and I apologize," Trump said in a video statement he released on his social media accounts.

These are not the only instances when Trump has used derogatory language to describe female genitals.

In January, conservative political commentator for Fox News Tucker Carlson wrote about the president hitting back at a host of the channel for making fun of Trump’s hair.

“But I get more pussy than you do,” Carlson quoted Trump as saying.
