US Democratic Party presidential aspirant Joe Biden issues statement on #MeToo allegations

US Democratic Party presidential aspirant Joe Biden issues statement on #MeToo allegations

After several women came forward to say that Biden had made them uncomfortable by doing things like touching their hair during public appearances, Trump tweeted a doctored video showing Biden massaging his own shoulders. According to the essay, Biden behaved inappropriately with Flores during a rally in Las Vegas in 2014 when he "touched her shoulders from behind" and planted a "big slow kiss" at the back of her head.

Other women have shared similar accounts. "Yeah, I think I'm a very good messenger and people got a kick out of it", Trump said.

Asked why he was waiting to announce his presidential run, Mr. Biden said that, if he was running, it was always his plan to be "the last person to announce".

"By the way, he gave me permission to touch him", Biden said again. I've written, err, err, and so the idea that I can't adjust to the fact that personal space is important, more important than it's ever been is just not there.

That won't change but I will be more mindful and respectful of people's personal space and that's a good thing - a good thing.

"If I were already in the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination I probably would not like to run against Joe Biden".

Messi Is Not God! - Pope Francis
During the summer of 2013, Messi and the rest of the Albiceleste squad took in a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Speaking about Messi's skill, Pope Francis said: "Of course, he brings happiness, but he isn't God".

Flores wasn't impressed. She tweeted: "To make light of something as serious as consent degrades the conversation women everywhere are courageously trying to have".

With almost 50 years in public life, Mr. Biden said that his record speaks for itself. He said he's been "told by the lawyers I have to be careful with what I say, so I don't start the clock ticking".

"I am very close to making the decision to stand before you all relatively soon", he said.

While Biden consistently sits atop public opinion polls assessing the 2020 Democratic field, some in the party have said he is out of step with its more progressive, diverse and younger elements.

"Well, I think it's going to have to change somewhat how I campaign".

The former VP reprimanded Trump for acting less-than-presidential, but Trump said "people got a kick out of it".
