The full interview with Morgan will air on Sunday.
Trump’s comments come amid an international conversation about sexual misconduct and behavior toward women.
The #MeToo and “Time’s Up” movements have been launched into the spotlight as prominent men in entertainment and politics have faced claims of sexual misconduct.
Trump has also been accused of sexual misconduct by more than a dozen women. Four of his accusers called for Congress to investigate the claims last year, as did dozens of Democratic female lawmakers.
Trump has repeatedly denied the claims.
