Python Flask REST API API Protection Password hashing

import datetime from peewee import * from argon2 import PasswordHasher DATABASE = SqliteDatabase('recipes.d

I am still getting an error message and my code will not pass.

models.py
import datetime

from peewee import *

from argon2 import PasswordHasher

DATABASE = SqliteDatabase('recipes.db')

HASHER = PasswordHasher()

class User(Model):
    username = CharField(unique=True)
    password = CharField()

    class Meta:
        database = DATABASE

@staticmethod
def hash_password(password):   #function takes in user password and hashes it
    return HASHER.hash(password)        

@classmethod
def create_user(cls, username, password):
    try:
        cls.get(cls.username**username)
    except cls.DoesNotExist:
        user = cls(username=username)
        user.password = cls.hash_password(password) #Here the class instance is calling the static method we just made
        user.save()
        return user
    else:
        raise Exception("User already exists")

The functions are inside the class so they have to be indented properly. They should line up with class Meta.
