Reporters asked Biden whether he thinks Cuomo should resign while the president was exiting Marine One after a weekend trip to Delaware. The governor has faced mounting calls from prominent New York Democrats to step down since six women have leveled sexual misconduct allegations against him.

“I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us,” Biden responded. 


The president and Vice President Harris have up to this point stayed mum on the subject of the harassment accusations.

Since then, several more women have come forward alleging the governor participated in sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior.

"We commend the brave actions of the individuals who have come forward with serious allegations of abuse and misconduct," the senators said. "Due to the multiple, credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations, it is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York. Governor Cuomo should resign.”
