Biden's remarks on Friday were similar to those he offered in a video he released earlier this week on social media, in which he acknowledged that concepts of "personal space" had changed in the context of the #MeToo movement.

The promise did not satisfy critics who demand an apology.

"The idea that all the sudden the Democratic Party woke up and, you know, everybody asked what kind of Democrat [are you]?"
