    On Tuesday, twelve presidential candidates from the US Democratic Party including current frontrunners, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden held a debate at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio. The sparring also marked Sen. Bernie Sanders’ return to the campaign following health problems.

    The US President Donald Trump has lashed out at his Democratic rivals in the upcoming 2020 presidential vote calling them 'clowns' and warning of an economic crisis on the scale of the Great Depression if any of them were elected president.

    The tweet comes on the heels of another post in which he took aim at his opponents saying that the debate proved none of them is fit to rule the United States.

    ​​Twelve Democratic presidential candidates took a part in debates on Tuesday at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, co-hosted by CNN and The New York Times.

    The forum was attended by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders as well as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, billionaire Tom Steyer, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Kamala Harris, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former tech executive Andrew Yang, former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former housing secretary Julian Castro.
