Donald Trump seems to have a lot on his mind lately and it’s not all about his presidential campaign. In what appears to be a huge Freudian slip, Trump seems to have said ‘t*tties’ instead of “cities” in his recent economic policy speech.
Look, the man said titties. There’s no way around it: https://t.co/Sb37bKP0A8

In the clip, it sounds like Donald Trump says “… and by the way, into titties like right here in Detroit.”
As Us Weekly reports, this isn’t the first time that Trump has made a made a flub like this. He once referred to 9/11 as the convenience store chain, 7- Eleven.
“I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart,” he said during a rally in Buffalo, New York. “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve ever seen in action.” Trump also did not correct himself on that occasion, Us Weekly reports.
The clip of Trump’s snafu was soon shared far and wide on social media platforms like Twitter.

If Trump were running on rebuilding titties, he’d probably stand a good chance of getting a lot of women voters to take a 2nd look.

Besides the “nip slip” in his speech, critics also poked holes in the economic policies Donald championed.
Writing for The Washington Post’s blog, Paul Waldman said that Donald Trump’s economic policy speech was full of “falsehoods and nonsense”
“Like every other Republican in memory, Trump argues that the only thing keeping our economy from rocketing into the stratosphere are the chains that government has locked around it,” Waldman wrote. “‘I want to jump-start America,” he said, “and it can be done, and it won’t even be that hard.” Also, everyone gets a pony.
During the speech, Trump called for a moratorium on new regulations and a cut to income and corporate taxes. He also wants America to pull out of its current trade deals and renegotiate them. As Waldman notes, the speech was full of big ideas but had little focus on how the measures would actually “make America great again.”
Donald Trump’s performance on the campaign trail also has him losing allies from the very party he is representing. The Telegraph reports that 50 high profile national security experts affiliated with the Republican party have declared that Donald Trump would be the most “reckless president in American history.”
The group of Republican national security officials made this declaration in a letter to The New York Times. They added that Trump did not have “character, values and experience” needed for the White House and would “put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.” They also said that Trump had very little knowledge of the complicated challenges that come with the job of being President of the United States and had “no interest in educating himself.”
The signatories to the letter include, Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and the NSA, John Negroponte, a previous director of national intelligence and William Taft, former US ambassador to NATO. As The Telegraph notes, a similar letter from national security officials was released earlier this year but this time the list of signatories is longer.
