Second woman accuses Joe Biden of inappropriate touching

Washington Correspondent

When Joe Biden was US Vice President, he was described as hands-on, touchy feely, a hugger.

As he contemplates running for President, two women have complained about feeling uncomfortable about the way he touched them.

In the 2016 campaign, Republican Donald Trump – who bragged about groping women – won.

But today Democrat Joe Biden is facing calls to stay out of the 2020 race.

He says he never acted inappropriately but will listen respectfully to suggestions he did, adding that he has a strong record of supporting women.
