Leading up to the first presidential debate, Trump had called on Democratic nominee Joe Biden to take a drug test.

"I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night," Trump wrote to his more than 86 million followers on social media. "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???"

If the president thinks his best case is made in urine he can have at it," Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield responded after the Trump tweet. "We’d expect nothing less from Donald Trump, who pissed away the chance to protect the lives of 200K Americans when he didn't make a plan to stop COVID-19.”

The next presidential debate will be Oct. 15 in Miami.
