resident Trump has now “demanded” that Joe Biden be drug tested either before or after their first presidential debate on Tuesday.
In a post on Twitter on Sunday, Trump said he thinks Biden’s debate performances in the past have been “uneven,” prompting him to ponder whether Biden is using performance-enhancing drugs.
“I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly,” Trump wrote. “Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???”
Trump in August said that he thinks Biden’s varying performances in past debates during the Democratic primary season deserves scrutiny.
“Nobody thought that he was even going to win,” Trump told Washington Examiner columnist Byron York during an interview in the Oval Office. “Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie. It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill, because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test, because there’s no way — you can’t do that.”
