US President Donald Trump on Sunday demanded that his rival in the presidential election on November 3, Democrat Joe Biden, submit to a testing for possible medications before the debate that will face them next Tuesday.
“I will firmly demand that Joe The Sleepy Biden undergoes a drug analysis before or after the debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I agree to do it too. His performances in the debates have been very UNEQUAL, to put it mildly. Could only drugs be the cause of this discrepancy ??? “Trump posted on Twitter.
Trump has repeatedly questioned Biden about his age and mental agility and has even suggested that he might have senile dementia. It is not the first time that Trump has hinted that Biden has medicated to improve her interventions.
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. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???
