In a Tweet, Trump said Biden's previous appearances "have been record-setting UNEVEN" and suggested it was because Biden was on drugs.
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???— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 27, 2020
The President said he would agree to take one himself.
