During a speech on Saturday in New Hampshire presidential candidate Donald Trump called on rival Hillary Clinton to be drug tested prior to the final debate on Wednesday. Trump says he’s willing to take a drug test himself.
“We should take a drug test prior cause I don’t know what’s going on with her,” Trump said at the event, held at the back lot of a Toyota dealership. “But at the beginning of last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning and at the end it was like, oh take me down. She could barely reach her car.”
Trump’s claim echoes one recently made by the pro-Trump super PAC Make America Number 1. In a TV ad from last week they proposed candidates be drug tested, which was played over sounds of Clinton coughing and included imagery of her stumbling to her van on 9/11.
How all of this unfolds will be determined soon, as we are now just three weeks away from the November 8th election.
