Former Vice President Joe Biden apologized for not better understanding when he has made women uncomfortable in the past with physical displays of affection or support during an impromptu gaggle with reporters on Friday.

“I’m sorry I didn’t understand more, I’m not sorry for any of my intentions,” he said. “I’ve never been disrespectful intentionally to a man or a woman.”

Biden has come under fire from some on the left for his past history of invading others’ personal space and not apologizing for it. Biden released a video earlier this week saying he would be better about recognizing when it’s appropriate and not appropriate to touch people.

Biden has not yet announced whether he intends to run for president in 2020.
