'Law and Order' puts Donald Trump-inspired episode on hold

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

NBC has decided not to air "and Order: Special Victims Unit" episode that tackles Donald Trump until after the presidential next month.

Originally scheduled for October 26, the outing titled "Unstoppable" is now put on hold. It will not be air until after the presidential on November 8, reported Ace Showbiz.

The episode will see Gary Cole ("Veep") playing a politician whose campaign goes haywire when several women go public with damaging accusations.

It was announced hot on heels of Trump's leaked lewd conversation with Billy Bush.

The Republican candidate was caught on Access Hollywood's mic making derogatory comments about women.

After the tape was leaked, the GOP politician was hit with sexual assault accusations.

Some influential Republicans have since withdrawn their support for Trump.

They're hoping he step down and let his running mate Mike Pence replace him in the ballot, but the controversial politician didn't budge.
