Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Saturday called Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s comments about his sexual endeavors “sexual assault.”

A video from 2005, that The Washington Post published Friday, shows Trump commenting about making moves on a woman, and how he can do anything he wants to women because he’s a “star,” including grabbing their genitals.

“The words are demeaning,” Biden said in a tweet Saturday afternoon. “Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault.”
