Donald Trump Accuses Hillary Clinton of Being on Some Kind of Drug During Last Debate
The Republican candidate suggested that drug testing should be enforced at the beginning of the next, and final, presidential debate on Wednesday.
Donald Trump is accusing rival Hillary Clinton of being on some kind of drug during the last debate, and says that both candidates should be tested for substances ahead of the next one.
The Republican presidential nominee offered no evidence to support the bizarre claim, which he appeared to base on his belief that Clinton was energetic at the start of their second debate and downbeat at its conclusion.
"I think she's actually getting pumped up" while she's off the trail, said Trump. He also mocked Clinton for what he suggested was wasting time by preparing for their debates.
Trump called on both candidates to take a drug test prior to the final debate on Wednesday. "I don't know what's wrong with her, but at the beginning of her last debate she was all pumped up and at the end it was like 'take me down.' She could barely reach her car. So, I think we should take a drug test. Anyway, I'm willing to do it," he said.
The GOP nominee made the extraordinary, baseless assertion when speaking at an outdoor rally on Saturday in Portsmouth, N.H.
