A ''Freudian slip'' as Biden targets Donald Trump as ''Hump'' at Democratic forum in New Hampshire

Sep 08, 2019, 11.15 AM (IST)
A parade of 19 presidential hopefuls courted New Hampshire Democratic activists at a day-long convention on Saturday (September 7), touting their ability to unite the party and offering their visions for how to beat U.S. President Donald Trump in 2020. In a series of 10-minute speeches, the contenders accused Trump of sowing hate and threatening democracy, calling the 2020 election a referendum on what kind of country the United States would be. "This president has unleashed the deepest, darkest forces in this nation," Democratic front-runner Joe Biden told the convention. "We cannot and I will not let this man be re-elected president of the United States of America." He also made what he called a "Freudian slip" referring to President Trump as "President Hump."
