Trump Asks for Biden Drug Test Before CNN Debate — Says He’ll Take One Too: Trump Offers to Take Drug Screening if Biden Agrees to Same Test; Drug-Test Biden Before Thursday Showdown, Advises Doctor

Trump asks for Biden drug test before CNN debate — says he’ll take one too:
Former President Donald Trump demanded Monday that President Biden undergo a drug test before Thursday’s first presidential debate — days after predicting that his rival would be “jacked up” on the CNN stage.
“DRUG TEST FOR CROOKED JOE BIDEN??? I WOULD, ALSO, IMMEDIATELY AGREE TO ONE!!!” Trump, 78, wrote on Truth Social after he and his allies had repeatedly suggested that Biden, 81, will be medicated during the Atlanta forum.
Biden has been sequestered since last week at the Camp David presidential retreat in western Maryland, leading to dark suggestions from Republican circles about what the incumbent’s debate preparation may entail.
“There is no universe in which [Biden’s] not being medicated before the debate. If he wants to dispel that, he should offer to take a drug test, but we all know he won’t do that,” one Trump ally told The Post.
“I think it’s a fair question worth asking,” added campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt. “If Biden wants to prove otherwise, why didn’t he commit to a drug test?”
The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to an inquiry from The Post about whether he would undergo such screening.
In May, Trump told Republicans during a GOP dinner in Minnesota that he was going to “demand a drug test” before the debate because Biden was “as high as a kite” during his March State of the Union address.
Trump has not indicated that he will back out of debating Biden without a drug test, but did reiterate during a Saturday rally in Philadelphia that he believes Biden will likely get a pharmacological boost.
“Right now, Crooked Joe has gone to a log cabin to ‘study,’ ” Trump told supporters, referencing the Camp David stay. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump offers to take drug screening if Biden agrees to same test:
Trump team has heavily pushed speculation about Biden's ability to speak for long periods of time without medication
Former President Trump has volunteered to undertake a drug test before Thursday's debate if President Biden agrees.
Trump made the comment on Monday via Truth Social, his proprietary social media platform.
"DRUG TEST FOR CROOKED JOE BIDEN???" Trump wrote in all capital letters. "I WOULD, ALSO, IMMEDIATELY AGREE TO ONE!!!"
The Trump team has made the hypothetical use of drugs at Thursday's CNN Presidential Debate, a prominent talking point — continuing the former president's longstanding claim that Biden is unable to speak for long periods of time without medication.
Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, the White House physician-turned-House lawmaker, demanded in a letter last week that Biden submit to a drug test before the debate with Trump.
The former president shared the letter without comment via Truth Social not long after it was published by Jackson. --->READ MORE HERE
