President Trump agreed to take a drug test before or after the debate and asked Biden to do the same, and he, of course, refused. President Trump commented on Twitter.
“Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test. Gee, I wonder why?”

This man is going to be so pumped full of meds, he’s gonna look like an embalmed corpse out there.
Pelosi just recently flipped the panic switch by doubling down on her claims that Biden should not debate President Trump.
What’s the reason this time? Well…it’s his constant lying.
Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.”
She continued: “He and his henchmen are a danger, with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. So I don’t want to give him – I mean, why bother? He doesn’t tell the truth.”
Well, it appears that Biden is in agreement with Pelosi on this outlandish reason.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Biden agreed that Pelosi has a point in her arguments against him debating Trump:
“I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States,” she added.
Ruhle asked Biden, “Does she have a point?”
“Well, she does,” Biden said.
He mentioned that some leading columnists have also said that Biden should not debate Trump.
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman argued in July that Biden should not debate Trump unless the president agrees to terms such as live fact-checking. Clinton administration press secretary Joe Lockhart said in August that Biden should skip the debates because of Trump’s lies. Days later, journalist Elizabeth Drew wrote in the New York Times that the debates should be scrapped altogether.
The opinion pieces fueled theories among right-wing commentators that Biden was being primed to skip a debate against Trump, even as his campaign deemed it an “imaginary controversy” and Biden repeatedly said that he could “hardly wait” to debate Trump.
“Look, the people know the president’s a liar. I mean, they know that,” Biden said in the interview Saturday. “It’s going to come as a surprise. And so, I’m prepared to go out and make my case as to why I think he has failed and why I think the answers I have to proceed will help the American people and the American economy and make us safer internationally.”
Not only are these calls to stop a presidential debate completely crazy, but the fact that Biden himself is now legitimizing them is equally bizarre.
