Former Vice President Joe Biden issued spoke out publicly, as more women came forward, claiming interactions with him made them uncomfortable.
In his career, Biden says he’s always tried to make a human connection.
“I shake hands. I hug people. I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘You can do this,’” he said.

“And I get it. I get it. I hear what they’re saying, I understand it, and I’ll be much more mindful,” Biden expressed. “That’s my responsibility. My responsibility and I’ll meet it.”
Biden promised to be more respectful of people’s personal space.
