(CNSNews.com) – President Donald Trump said on Sunday he wasn’t joking about having Democrat Joe Biden take a drug test before their Sept. 29 debate.
“I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night,” Trump tweeted Sunday morning.
“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???”
Later Sunday, a reporter asked Trump at a news conference if he was joking about the drug test.
“I am not joking,” Trump said:
I mean, I’m willing to take a drug test. I think he should too. Because he’s had a very uneven — I watched him with some of the — you know, when he was debating Pocahontas and Harris, who treated him so badly. But I watched him, and he was out of it, right? And then I watched him against Bernie Sanders, and he was okay. I mean he wasn’t great, but he wasn’t terrible. He was okay.
A far cry from the way he — you know what I’m saying. I mean, if you look at some of those debates, I said there’s no way he can continue. He can’t continue. Then all of a sudden, he debated crazy Bernie Sanders, and you know what? The truth is, he was okay.
And I said, how did he go from there, from those horrible performances to where he was okay? And I always joke, but you know, it’s true. He is no Winston Churchill in debating, but he was fine. And people say he was on performance-enhancing drugs — a lot of people have said that. A lot of people have written that.
(Trump told reporters to “check out the Internet, plenty of people say it.”)
“I would love to take a test, and he can take a test too,” Trump added.
