Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he’s not sorry for his past actions that some women have said made them uncomfortable, but that he’s sorry he didn’t understand more at the time.
“The fact of the matter is I made it clear that if I made anyone feel [uncomfortable], I feel badly about that. It was never my intention. Ever,” Biden said.
Asked again if he was sorry, Biden did not apologize for his actions.
“I’m sorry I didn’t understand more,” Biden told reporters following a speech to a gathering of union workers. “I’m not sorry for any of my intentions. I’m not sorry for anything that I have ever done. I have never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman. So that’s not the reputation I’ve had since I was in high school, for God’s sakes.”
Biden, who acknowledged he is merely waiting for the right moment to jump into the 2020 presidential race, has been at the center of controversy in recent days after several women said he touched them inappropriately or behaved in ways that made them uncomfortable.
Biden admitted that the accusations of unwanted touching will “have to change somewhat how I campaign.” He did not elaborate, other than to explain that he’s careful when taking selfies with supporters.
