Joe Biden jokes about inappropriate touching during a speech

Joe Biden jokes about inappropriate touching during a speech

Dingell said, "I'm from the midwest, and I'm going to tell you--I told you for three years... that President Trump could become president because he listened to people in the midwest, he talked about economic issues, he talked about issues that mattered to working people. I'm not sorry for any of my intentions, I'm not sorry for anything that I have ever done", he said.

Images of Biden hugging various women and appearing to be sniffing their hair have always been in the public eye, but with the accusations mounting and 2020 on the horizon, he chose to explain it: in a video, he said it's his way of "connecting with people" and promised to be "more mindful" in the future, now that "social norms have begun to change".

"Making light of it?" asked CNN's Kiran Chetry.

Trump also said that he did not view Biden "as a threat", adding "I think he's only a threat to himself".

Although he has not been accused of sexual assault or harassment, the women have said they felt Biden violated their personal space.

Biden's Friday speech to an electrical workers union conference in Washington, D.C., comes as he nears a decision on whether to run for president in 2020.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Friday she's running for president because she wants to "fight back" against President Donald Trump and how he has "destroyed the moral fabric" of who the United States is as a country. On Thursday, he posted a video online in which he said he would be "much more mindful" when interacting with people. But, talking to reporters after addressing members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Biden said he was proud of his own early support for gay marriage and other liberal stands.

"He gave me permission to touch him all right?"

With almost 50 years in public life, Mr. Biden said that his record speaks for itself. "And I hate they way things have changed over the past 15-20 years". If he runs for president he's going to win because he is Joe Biden. Asked what's the hold up, he responded, "The hold up?"

"I don´t see Joe Biden as a threat", Trump told reporters Friday.
