Trump challenges Clinton to drug test before next debate

Donald Trump is calling for a drug test before the third presidential debate on Wednesday evening.

“We’re like athletes,” Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon. “Athletes, they make them take a drug test, right? I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate. Why don’t we do that?”

Trump said that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton was “all pumped up” at the beginning of the second presidential debate, but by the end, “she was like, ugh, take me down. She could barely reach her car.”

Both candidates have received scrutiny over their health in recent weeks -- Trump for his constant sniffling during the debates, and Clinton over being initially secretive over her bout of pneumonia.
