Trump Demand Drug Test Before & After Wednesday’s Debate
Trump Wants A Drug Test For Joe Biden! Check Out Here: In his most recent shot at his opponent’s mental acuity, U.S. President Donald Trump demanded that Democratic nominee Joe Biden take a substance test before or after the pair’s first debate on Tuesday.
Trump’s baseless allegation, levied in recent weeks, came as he continues to seek Biden, as he has for months, in national polls. In the last four decades, Trump faces the risk of becoming the third U.S. president to lose a bid for reelection to a second four-year term.
“I will be strongly demanding a drug test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the debate on Tuesday night,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Sunday.
“Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His debate performances have been record-setting uneven, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy?”
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the campaign teams for both candidates on Saturday finalized the criteria for the debate. It included forgoing the traditional handshake and a small audience.
A test for drugs was not listed. Trump, 74, and Biden, 77, when talking are prone to blunders.
Drug Test Amidst Presidential Election
Mr Trump has spent months observing the mental state of Mr Biden. In recent weeks he has indicated several times that the former vice president could use unknown substances to improve his performance.
The allegations were brushed off by Mr Biden, calling on voters to observe the two men together.
“Watch me. Look at us both,” he said in August.
Mr Biden said on Saturday that during the debate he predicted “personal attacks and lies” from the president, comparing Mr Trump to Nazi propaganda leader Joseph Goebbels.
The Cleveland, Ohio, clash Tuesday, the first of three 90-minute debates, will be the first time voters see candidates square off against each other.
Fox News host Chris Wallace, the moderator for the first debate, has set subjects ranging from the Supreme Court, the pandemic and global crises, racism and the fairness of the election.
