(ConservativePeak.com)- The first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will take place on Tuesday, September 29. It has been hotly anticipated by Republicans for months, ever since it became obvious that Joe Biden was relying almost entirely on teleprompters to give speeches and even answer questions.
President Donald Trump said on Sunday that he would be “strongly demanding” that Biden take a drug test “prior to, or after” the debate on Tuesday. It comes as speculation rises online that the Democrats may give Biden performance-enhancing drugs, to assist with mental acuity.
“Naturally, I will agree to take one also,” President Trump said, before citing the mixed performances given by Biden in previous debates as a cause for concern.
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???

“His Debate performances have been record setting UNVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???” he pondered.
President Trump isn’t the only person to think that Joe Biden is struggling to keep up with the campaign, either. A Rasmussen poll recently found that a huge section of American voters think the Democratic nominee has dementia.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 38% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden is suffering from some form of dementia,” Rasmussen reported. “Based on what they have seen and read, 48% disagree, but 14% are not sure.”
What’s more, some 20% of Democrat voters believe that their candidate has dementia. 60% of Republicans believe the same, and around 30% of independents also believe that Biden has dementia.
Just days before President Trump called once again for a drug test before the debates, Joe Biden was caught getting confused about how long ago he was elected to the Senate. In a video, he said that he got to the Senate 180 years ago.
The last time President Trump called for drug tests before the debate, he referenced how in early debates he was “incompetent” but improved later on.
