Donald Trump defends his retweet of Joe Biden parody video

Answering questions from reporters after the speech, Biden said he was "sorry that I didn't understand more". "I am not sorry for anything that I have ever done - I've never been disrespectful, intentionally, to a man or a woman". He doesn't get it if he's not understanding the women think their space was violated, that they were disrespected.

Flores told CNBC she felt Biden's attempts to "make light of something as serious as consent degrades the conversation women" are having in the #MeToo era.

Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, facing a growing swell of allegations that he has made women uncomfortable with his use of physical contact, made light of the controversy on Friday while continuing to lay the groundwork for a 2020 presidential run.

The comments followed Mr. Biden's first public appearance since the women began coming forward with stories about his touching, hugging and kissing that, while not characterized as sexual assault, made them uncomfortable.

Biden seizing the moment to spar with Trump is a departure from his modus operandi throughout the wave of allegations over the last week.

Biden's address seemed meant to highlight how he could win back white, blue-collar workers like those who supported Donald Trump in 2016.

Trump added that he doesn't see Biden as a threat in the 2020 election. Biden seemed to criticize his own party for walking away from the demographic in a nostalgia-drenched, 40-minute address.

I've worked my whole life to empower women. I was confused... I couldn't move and I couldn't say anything.

The IBEW endorsed Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016. More than a dozen have accused Trump of sexually harassing them.

King responded, "He had to know walking onto the stage that moment and then he makes what he considers to be a joke which I suspect a lot of other people, especially the women involved here, are going to find offensive".

But Biden also appeared to tip is hand once again.
