U.S. President Donald Trump has mocked ‘UNEVEN’ Joe Biden by suggesting he is on drugs – before demanding he gets tested prior to the debate.
Trump’s Sunday morning tweet comes just two days before the first presidential debate.
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??? Trump tweeted.
The first U.S. presidential election 2020 debate will be held on Sep. 29 in Cleveland, Ohio.
Trump will face Democratic rival Biden to answer a series of questions, each warranting a reply with up to 15 minutes to make up the 90-minute encounter.
Last month, Trump suggested Biden may be taking mind-enhancing drugs.
Donald Trump suggested tests to be carried out before he and the Democratic nominee go head-to-head in the debate.
Trump, speaking to the Washington Examiner, said that he was making the suggestion based on Biden’s supposed improved debate performances against Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont back in March.
However, the president offered no evidence to support his claims.
Trump, speaking in the Oval Office, said: Nobody thought that he was even going to win. 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.”
Meanwhile, President Trump insisted at a Friday night at a rally in Newport News, Virginia, that the only way he can lose the presidential election 2020 is if he is “cheated.
He told his audience: I want a smooth, beautiful transition, but – this is a disaster waiting to happen, and the only hope we have, really, other than going through a long litigation in the end after it’s over – because we’re going to win.
We’re not going to lose this except if they cheat. Our country is at stake and it’s true.
The debate which will be held at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic will not have any commercial breaks.
Fox News journalist Chris Wallace will be moderating the debate.
