Trump: Joe Biden Should Be Tested for ‘Some Kind of Enhancement’ Before Debates
'He is on some kind of enhancement, in my opinion'
President Donald Trump has called for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to be tested for “some kind of enhancement” before the debates.
During an interview with Fox News, Trump said:
“He is on some kind of enhancement, in my opinion."
Host Laura Ingraham asked Trump why a drug test for both candidates should be carried out.
The president said he witnessed the former vice president failed horribly in previous Democrat debates but looked different in the final one with Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“He wasn’t Winston Churchill, but he was normal,” Trump said.
“It was like an even deal," Trump continued.
"He got by it. And I said, ‘That was a different guy then the guy that was in the debates where Kamala just took him apart.'”
Trump said he would be willing to take a drug test if Biden also takes one.
“I’ll take one. He’ll take one. We should both take a drug test.”

Trump recently compared the presidential debates to a “prizefight" in an interview with the Washington Examiner’s Byron York.
“Well, it is a prizefight,” Trump said.
“It’s no different from the gladiators, except we have to use our brain and our mouth. And our body to stand," Trump said.
"I want all standing; they want to sit down.”
Earlier this year, the president said Biden has an “obligation” to take a cognitive test to prove to voters he’s “sharp” enough to enter office.
“Honestly, he should take the test,” Mr. Trump said at the time.
"In a way, he has an obligation to, because you have to be able to show this country that the person that we’re picking as leader is sharp.”
"We’re dealing with people that want to do very bad things to us if they had the chance.
"And you have to be sharper than them.”
In 2019, Biden released his medical records, but details of his cognitive health were suspiciously absent.
