Biden accuser Lucy Flores slams his lack of apology

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

"I did", Biden said before an audience of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

Flores and several other women have been clear that they don't view Biden's conduct as violent or sexual.

"You don't have to think back too far to remember that good men running for president were viewed as being elitist and out of touch with the values and the lives of millions of Americans", Clinton said of Obama during a rally in Biden's hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Biden did say the controversy "is going to have to change somewhat how I campaign".

Biden made a similar joke again after inviting some children of the attendees on stage and draping his arm around a boy.

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

Biden addressed the allegations in a video released on Twitter Wednesday, but his remarks Friday were the first time he's referenced the subject in public.

Trump added that he doesn't see Biden as a threat in the 2020 election. "Sort of, I don't know, leaves me scratching my head". Biden has pledged to be more "mindful" about respecting personal space.

Biden now faces allegations from multiple women that his physical behavior made them uncomfortable.

Biden, who is mulling a run for president, has faced scrutiny over the last week over his past of touchy behavior around women and girls.

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".

Biden allies insist the eruption has done little to slow planning for a 2020 campaign.

With almost 50 years in public life, Mr. Biden said that his record speaks for itself. "So they don't put it on Instagram".

Asked about when he is going to get into the race, Biden said his lawyers have told him he has to be careful about what he says because he doesn't want to "start the clock ticking and change my status".
