At a campaign rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on Saturday, Donald Trump suggested that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton had such energy at the last presidential debate, she must have been on something. Now he is demanding Clinton undergo a drug test before their third and final debate on Oct. 19.
“Athletes ― they make them take a drug test, right? I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump told the crowd.
Trump went on to insinuate that Clinton might be using performance-enhancing drugs to improve her debate skills.
“I don’t know what’s going on with her, but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning,” Trump said.
“And at the end, it was like, ‘Huh, take me down,’” he said, mimicking an exhausted exhale. “She could barely reach her car.”
Take a look:
The GOP nominee has tried to cast aspersions on Clinton’s physical fitness and health, claiming she lacks the “stamina” to serve as president. But when Trump was asked to name something he liked about her in Sunday night’s debate, it was her perseverance he praised.
