WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is mocking Joe Biden's video in which the former vice president pledges to alter behavior that made some women uncomfortable.

The president on Thursday tweeted out a parody video made by a Trump supporter and which had been posted overnight by Dan Scavino, White House director of social media.

Biden put out a video Wednesday saying he understood that his touchy-affectionate behavior upset some women and pledging to change his ways.

In the doctored video tweeted Thursday by Trump, images of Biden pop up alongside the vice president, touching and nuzzling him. Trump added the caption: "WELCOME BACK JOE!"

Several women have come forward in recent days to complain about Biden's behavior. More than a dozen have accused Trump of sexually harassing them. Trump denied the charges.
