US elections 2020 : Before debate with Biden, Trump calls for … “doping test”

Without providing any tangible element, the tenant of the White House assured, in an interview with the Washington Examiner, to have been intrigued by the improvement of the services of Joe Biden during the Democratic primaries. “We are going to demand a doping test,” he said, astonished at the performance of the former vice-president during the last debate against Bernie Sanders in March. Does he have concrete elements to support his claims? “All I can tell you is I’m good at seeing this kind of stuff,” the president replied. “I watched him during the debates with all these people (the other candidates for the Democratic nomination, note). He was incompetent and, against Bernie, he was normal. How can that be explained?”

In the fall of 2016, in the middle of the campaign, the Republican billionaire had already made similar remarks, citing the hypothesis that his then-Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, had resorted to drugs. “I think we should get tested for drug use before the debate,” he said at a campaign rally in New Hampshire. The first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is scheduled for September 29. The next two will take place on October 15 and 22.
