Amid complaints of unwanted touching, Biden jokes he got 'permission' to hug

Biden Responds to Trump's Tweet of Doctored Video

Former Vice President Joe Biden apologized for not better understanding when he has made women uncomfortable in the past with physical displays of affection or support during an impromptu gaggle with reporters on Friday.

Although he has not been accused of sexual assault or harassment, the women have said they felt Biden violated their personal space. Several women have since come forward with similar stories about Biden.

"I am sorry I didn't understand more", he said.

As far as the question of the Democrats being the "Obama/Biden" Democratic party, Dingell said, "It's a party of working men and women that want somebody to care about them that are going to talk about the issues that matter to families across this country".

The day after the video was published, Biden met the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and hugged its head, Lonnie Stephenson, joking that he "had permission" to do so.

"I don't know Joe Biden personally I've never met him". I'm not sorry for anything I have ever done.

Former Vice President Joe Biden denounced the "sophisticated" and "elitist" attitudes that he believes have overtaken the United States in the past 15-20 years, in a speech delivered to union leaders on Friday.

Asked whether he could win this Democratic primary given that he's been tagged as a moderate by many activists in the party, Biden dismissed that label. "To make light of something as serious as consent degrades the conversation women everywhere are courageously trying to have". "I think he's having fun with it", Trump said.

Friday was the second time in two days the president attacked Biden on Twitter.

But: "I'm very close to making the decision to stand before you relatively soon". "And I hate they way things have changed over the past 15-20 years".

When a reporter asked him what the hold up was, Biden responded, "Putting everything together, man. Putting everything together".

Biden, who is gearing up to become a Democratic frontrunner in 2020 (though he hasn't announced he is running yet) is facing accusations of improper touching from seven women who accuse him of touching them improperly.
