'DEMAND A DRUG TEST': Trump Wants Biden Tested Before Debates, Says Joe 'High as a Kite' at SOTU [WATCH]

During a campaign rally in St. Paul, Minnesota over the weekend, former President Donald Trump said he would demand a drug test for President Biden before their debate; “He was high as a kite” at the State of the Union, Trump told the audience.

“I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union. He was high as a kite,” Trump said. “I said is that Joe up there? … And by the end of the evening … he was exhausted, right? No, we’re going to demand a drug test.”

Watch the clip below:

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott supported Trump’s request for drug tests when questioned about it during a recent Fox News appearance.

“Why not? The truth of the matter is if you saw the State of the Union and you watched that performance, it was surreal. There was something going on, and if we could find the truth of what it was, we’re all better off,” Scott said. “If it takes artificial stimulation to make the President of the United States perform, how often can he do that?” Scott said.

White House Spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement over the weekend that it was “confidence” — not illicit drug use that helped Biden at the State of the Union address earlier this year.

“It’s telling that Republican officials are unable to stop announcing how intimidated they remain by [the] President’s State of the Union performance,” Bates said. “But after losing every public and private negotiation with President Biden — and after seeing him succeed where they failed across the board, ranging from actually rebuilding America’s infrastructure to actually reducing violent crime to actually outcompeting China — it tracks that those same Republican officials mistake confidence for a drug.”
