  • Trump says he’s ‘a very good messenger’ on Biden’s close physical contact with women

Former US vice president Joe Biden said Friday he was on the cusp of announcing his 2020 plans, acknowledging he was watching his words carefully so as not to "start the clock" on a presidential campaign.

"It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations", Obama said.

The pair hug. Mr Biden later joked he "had permission", referencing the recent allegations. But he stopped short of apologising.

"Well, look, I - the fact of the matter is I made it clear that if I made anyone feel comfortable, I feel badly about that. I've never been disrespectful intentionally, to a man or a woman".

"I'm not sorry for any of my intentions".

On Wednesday, Biden released a video on social media addressing his physical contact with women, pledging to "be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future".

Her account was countered by scores of women - from prominent lawmakers to former staffers - who praised him as a warm, affectionate person and a supportive boss. At least six other women later came forward with similar accounts, as others have written about their own more positive experiences with Biden.

Ultra Violet, a women's rights group that initially urged Mr Biden to do better, also reacted sharply. The crowd reacted. Joe Biden is Joe Biden.

"He sent a very clear signal to women today - he just doesn't respect them."

"It's his first public event", Dingell responded.

Amy Lappos, a woman from CT who recounted earlier in the week an instance in which Biden rubbed noses with her, also found his response troubling.

The enduring controversy underscores the challenge the 76-year-old career politician faces should he run.

His travails have been noticed by Mr Trump, who tweeted a doctored version of Mr Biden's video response to the accusations.

Trump also added that he doesn't see Biden as a threat in the 2020 U.S. elections.

"I get, in talking to a lot of people around the vice president, that he doesn't think he did anything wrong", King said the network on Friday.
