Trump Says He Will Call for Drug Tests Before His Debate With Biden

President Donald Trump revealed on Wednesday he is going to call for a drug test for both himself and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden ahead of his debate with the former vice president next month.

Trump expressed skepticism surrounding Biden’s debate performance against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on March 15 and suggested during an Oval Office interview with the Washington Examiner drugs could have been the reason behind the improvement.

“Nobody thought that he was even going to win. Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie,” Trump said.

He continued, “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.”

Trump questioned how Biden struggled before he debated with Sanders and then “all of a sudden” bounced back and performed well.

The president recognized he might not be able to request a drug test, but reiterated he thinks “it’s appropriate” and “they should do it.”

“Go back and watch his performances in some of those debates. He didn’t know where he was. And all of a sudden, he was not good, he was normal, and I don’t understand how,” Trump said.

He added, “I don’t know if there is or not, but somebody said to me, ‘He must be on drugs.’ I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I’m asking for a drug test. Both candidates. Me, too. I take an aspirin a day.”

There are three scheduled general election debates between Biden and Trump set for Sept. 29, Oct. 15 and Oct. 22.


  1. Scotty the Imposter aka the genital Troll proves he can not think logically because he drinks. But wait he can not think logically no matter what. What a loser!

  2. “Trump wanting drug tests when he is on drugs himself.” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    The whole world is aware that King Donald The Loser is on some sort of drug.

  3. Jaybird that makes a lot of sense Trump wanting drug tests when he is on drugs himself. Just another of your fantasy thoughts.I don’t know how you and Scotty the Imposter aka genital troll come up with such crap.

  4. “The General has called out the corruption and “lifetime” tenured Congress critters.” I Ching

    I Ching is confused.

    I haven’t “called out the corruption AND “lifetime” tenured Congress critters”. I call out the corruption, yes, but I don’t mind good politicians staying in office for multiple terms IF they are not corrupt and are doing a good job of representing their CONSTITUENTS, not their bribers. The problem is that a lot of politicians, not all, are in politics for themselves or they have forgotten who they are supposed to be supporting. That is different than what you assumed of me.

  5. Took you look enough, Jayjay. 😀

    It’s called projection, and conservatives do it ALL of the time, including here on IJR. Some members even earned getting nicknamed Projectionists because they try doing it so often. They don’t do it all that well, mind you, so they aren’t all that effective, but they sure keep on practicing at it.

  6. I finally have trump figured out. If he accuses someone of something, it’s because he does/has it himself. Very simple Really. Drugs, cognitive decline, etc.

  7. Why not full health records, including immediate and independent cognitive testing, and taxes?

    The Genital has called out the corruption and “lifetime” tenured Congress critters. Let’s have them tested too AND the results published along with their tax records.

    Remember these *ahem* people are NOT our betters. They work for us. As employers we can and should demand these results.
