    Trump calls Biden to drug test before debate

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday suggested that both himself and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden take drug tests before the first debate.

Iran PressAmerica: Donald Trump told the Washington Examiner he had noticed a sudden improvement in Biden's performance in the Democratic TV debates.

The US president offered no evidence his rival might be on drugs other than to say: "I'm pretty good at this stuff," BBC reported.

Biden and Trump will have three debates before the 3 November election.

Back in 2016, Trump suggested his then-Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, had been 'getting pumped up' before their debates and challenged her to take a drug test ahead of their final live TV encounter. The Clinton camp brushed aside his challenge.

On Wednesday, the president - who is set to deliver his keynote address to the ongoing Republican party convention on Thursday - made a similar claim, arguing that Biden's debating ability had improved markedly in the final debate.    104/207
