President Donald Trump on Friday told the anti-abortion protesters that it's not correct for babies to be "born" in the ninth month of pregnancy. 

Trump was addressing the "March for Life" rally at the National Mall, in the United States. 

Trump said, "right now, in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother's womb in the ninth month. It is wrong, it has to change."

As per news reports, Trump's "mistakenly" commented saying "born", instead he meant "torn" in reference to late-term abortion. 

He had previously criticised Hillary Clinton's support of abortion rights, saying "you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day." 

Hillary told Trump at the time: "that is not what happens in these cases, and using that kind of scare rhetoric is just terribly unfortunate." 

Trump’s mistake was mocked by critics on Twitter with some saying that he is mentally unfit to be president.
