The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has assured that he will request that there be anti-drug tests before his debates with the Democratic candidate for the White House, Joe Biden, after questioning, without evidence, his improvement in the televised confrontations of the former vice president during the primaries.
Biden participated in more than a dozen debates throughout the Democratic Party primaries, but Trump seems especially surprised by his role in the one on March 15, when the former ‘number two’ of the Barack Obama Administration faced only Senator Bernie Sanders.
“Nobody thought he was going to win,” said Trump, assuring that Biden’s previous appearances, before a larger number of candidates, had been “very bad.” Although he considers that “it is not that (Biden) was Winston Churchill” and “nothing surprising happened”, has questioned the evolution: “We are going to ask for a drug test because there is no way to do that.”
Trump has already slipped a similar suspicion in the 2016 campaign, in that case against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, but neither then nor now has he offered more evidence than his own observation. The first televised debate between the top two White House candidates in 2020 is scheduled for September 29.
