President Trump is the MASTER of negotiation, and the master of the double-bind.
And he’s just put forth perhaps his best one yet.
On Facebook and Twitter this morning, President Trump reiterated his “strong demand” for a drug test of Sleepy Joe Biden either before, during or after the debate.
President Trump is a beauty, I just love this guy!
Your move Hiden Biden!
Take a look:
Can I let you in on a little secret?
I think it's about more than just performance-enhancing drugs.
Sure, it will be fascinating to learn how many things Biden is hopped up on before the debate.
But do you know what I think Trump is really after?
I think he wants the blood test so he can check for Hydroxychloroquine.
I think Trump (rightly) suspects Biden has been taking HCW to combat the virus, meanwhile supporting the drug companies who want to sell us thousand dollar vaccines.
Meanwhile, the people who know are all taking the $5 HCQ pill.
Just my suspicion.
Our friends over at The Hill had more:
President Trump on Sunday again suggested that he and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should be tested for drugs before the upcoming debate between the two candidates.
Trump, who has sought to make Biden's age and mental agility an issue in the campaign by suggesting he has dementia, has baselessly accused Biden of having used drugs to improve his public performance.
In the latest tweet, which comes just two days before the debate, he again seized on the issue.
“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???” Trump tweeted.

Trump has put out multiple calls for the candidates to take drug tests ahead of the debate. The first debate will take place Tuesday.
Even Bloomberg is reporting:
President Donald Trump called for Joe Biden to take to a drug test before Tuesday’s presidential debate, repeating a claim, without evidence, that the Democrat’s public appearances have been affected by drug use.
In a Sunday-morning tweet, sent while en route to his private golf club in Virginia, Trump said that he would “agree to take one also.”
Trump first raised the idea of drug testing in August, saying Biden’s debate performances during the Democratic primary drastically improved before his head-to-head matchup in March with his main opponent, Senator Bernie Sanders.
The president has offered no proof that Biden has taken drugs to improve his public speaking.
Trump, 74, has argued for months that Biden, 77, is mentally diminished, an unsubstantiated claim that had the effect of lowering expectations for the Democrat’s debate performance this week.
Trump has since tried to raise the bar by comparing the Biden’s decades-long career in politics to his relatively short one. “He’s been doing this for 47 years; I’ve been doing it for four years,” Trump told reporters Saturday when asked about the debate.
