As the first presidential debate approaches, President Trump has made it clear that he doesn’t have much respect for his opponent.
In fact, about the only way that Trump figures Biden can hold it together is through the use of performance and concentration enhancing drugs. That’s why Trump is calling for drug testing before the debates.
President Donald Trump said Sunday that he was not joking about the need for a drug test ahead of the first presidential debate with former Vice President Joe Biden.
“No. I’m not joking,” he said when asked about the idea during a White House press conference. “I’m willing to take a drug test, I think he should too.”
That seems fair enough, although I don’t think Biden’s people will agree – in fact, there’s been some speculation that Biden won’t want to debate at all. Top Democrats like Speaker Nancy Pelosi have repeatedly urged Biden not to.
Trump meanwhile, isn’t backing down from his demands. Breitbart again:
The president said that he watched previous Democrat debates where Biden was clearly “out of it” but that he appeared much better during the final primary debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “He was okay. I mean, he wasn’t great; he wasn’t terrible; he was okay,” Trump said.
Trump questioned how Biden turned around his debate performances despite earlier disasters. “People say he was on performance-enhancing drugs; a lot of people have said that, a lot of people have written that,” Trump said.
