In recent days, Biden has faced criticism over his tendency to touch and hug women during public events.

Earlier this week, Biden released a video in which he said he will be "more mindful" of people's personal space.

Speaking to reporters after his speech, Biden said it wasn't his intent to "make light of anyone's discomfort".

"This country was not built by Wall Street banks, and CEOs and hedge fund managers", he said.
