In spite of the jokes, Biden told reporters after the event he is taking the complaints about his personal conduct seriously. "I literally think it is upon me", he said, "and I think everybody else, to make sure if you embrace someone, if you touch someone, it's with their consent, regardless of your intentions, regardless if you're trying to bring solace".

Several women have come forward to claim that he made them uncomfortable with his actions like touching, kissing, and smelling their hair.

US President Donald Trump says "people got a kick out of" the video he tweeted mocking Joe Biden.

Though he hasn't formally announced, Biden on Friday made clear he's expecting to run again for president, saying lawyers warned him he needs to speak carefully about his intentions but that he expects to "be standing before you all relatively soon". "I think he's having fun with it", Trump said.

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 am not sorry for anything that I have ever done", he continued.

I am very close to making the decision...
