President Donald Trump and Joe Biden both treated questions about the former vice president's conduct around women as a joking matter in separate remarks Friday. "I had permission to hug Lonnie".

I am very close to making the decision... And he contended, "The vast majority of the members of the Democratic Party are still basically liberal-to-moderate Democrats in the traditional sense".

She said she thinks the Democratic base is looking for bold ideas, but they may not agree with all of hers, including a plan for paying for college through national public service or time in the military.

Two days earlier, he posted an online video in which he promised to stop invading people's personal space.

Trump has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct, and on Friday he told reporters he saw no reason to avoid going after Biden on the issue.
