Trump says "Sleepy Joe Biden" is on drugs ahead of first presidential debate

United States President Donald Trump says he will be demanding a drug test from his rival, Joe Biden during the presidential debate.

Trump, 74 and Biden, 77, are expected to have three debates starting from September 30, before the November 3 election.

Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday: "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???," he added.

Trump had in August made a similar claim, arguing that Biden's debating ability had improved in the final Democratic primaries debate against Senator Bernie Sanders.

Trump said the former US vice-president "wasn't even coherent" during some of the 11 live TV debates he competed in earlier but by the time of the last debate on 15 March, he performed better against Sanders.

Speaking to the Washington Examiner, Trump said; "I don't know how he [Biden] could have been so incompetent in his debate performances and then all of a sudden be OK against Bernie."

He added: "It wasn't that he was Winston Churchill because he wasn't, but it was a normal, boring debate.

"You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there's no way - you can't do that."

Trump said of the debates: "Well, it is a prizefight. It's no different from the gladiators, except we have to use our brain and our mouth. And our body to stand. I want all standing - they want to sit down."
