Comments Off on President Trump wants himself and Joe Biden to take “drug test” before their first debate
President Donald Trump stated on Wednesday that he will call for a “drug test” for himself and former vice president and Democratic candidate Joe Biden before the first presidential debate ahead of the upcoming election.
Mr. Trump made this known in an interview with the Washington Examiner but failed to offer any evidence for his suspicions about his Democratic opponent or why they should undergo a “drug test”.
The president has no concrete evidence to support his claims, but, he said, “all I can tell you is that I’m pretty good at this stuff.
According to the president, he was intrigued by Biden’s improved performance during the Democratic primary.
“We’re going to call for a drug test,” Trump said, expressing surprise at the former vice president’s bearing during the last debate against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in March.
“I watched him in the debates with all of the different people,” Trump said, referring to the other Democratic presidential hopefuls. Biden was “close to incompetent, if not incompetent, and against Bernie, he was normal,” Trump continued. “I say, ‘How does that happen?’”
Trump and Biden’s first debate is slated for September 29 with subsequent ones on the 15 and 22 of October.
