President Joe Biden said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign after a report by the state’s attorney general found that the governor sexually harassed multiple women. Asked whether Biden stands by remarks earlier this year in which he said Cuomo, a close ally, should step down if allegations of sexual harassment were confirmed by the attorney general, Biden said: “Yes.” “I think he should resign,” Biden added.
“I think he should resign.”
