Joe Biden is backing off his recent comment about going to blows with President Trump.  Speaking at an anti-sexual assault rally at the University of Miami on March 20, Biden said, "A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, 'I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it.' They asked me if I'd like to debate this gentleman, and I said 'no.' I said, 'If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.'"    In an installment of the 'Pod Save America' podcast that aired on Wednesday, the former vice president expressed regret about making that claim.  "I shouldn't have said what I said," Biden stated. "I shouldn't have brought it up again because I don't want to get down in the mosh pit with this guy."  "The truth of the matter is, I find the behavior and the talk vulgar, I find it degrading, and what I think it does is encourage the minority element of the male population to think it's okay to engage in the behavior the President talks about," Biden further said.
Notably, the former vice president has been an outspoken critic of Trump.
During an appearance on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in November,' Biden said of the sitting president's term, "I think it will, God willing, go down as the single exception in American history."
