Drugs have been a popular topic of conversation during this week in politics. An odd appearance during Donald Trump Jr.’s recent RNC speech led many to speculate he may have been on something. When asked about the rumors, the President’s son made a joke about Hunter Biden.
Now the President himself is making drug accusations as well. During a recent interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump claimed that Biden’s recent speeches and debate performances are the result of illicet substances.
Trump told interview Byron York:
“Nobody thought that he was even going to win,” Trump said of the Democratic primary. “Because his debate performances were so bad. Frankly, his best performance was against Bernie. 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 says he's calling for both himself and Biden to be drug tested before they debate, because Biden improved so much in his last debate against Sanders that "there's no way" it could be natural, and "somebody said to me he must be on drugs."

The President continued, “All I can tell you is that I’m pretty good at this stuff. I look. I watched him in the debates with all of the different people. He was close to incompetent, if not incompetent, and against Bernie, he was normal … and I say, ‘How does that happen?'”
