Washington D.C., Oct. 16 (ANI): Claiming that Hillary Clinton, has been "getting pumped up" with performance-enhancing drugs, Donald Trump dared his Democratic rival to take a drug test before the final debate next week.

According to CNN, Trump argued that Clinton was more energetic during the beginning of their debate last Sunday, but lost her steam by the end of the debate, however, he offered no evidence to back up his wild claim.

"I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate. Because I don't know what's going on with her, but at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up at the beginning, and at the end it was like, huff, take me down. She could barely reach her car," Trump said at a rally.

"A lot of things are going on, folks. A lot of things. I think she's actually getting pumped, you want to know the truth? She's getting pumped up. She's getting pumped up for Wednesday," he added.

Trump further asserted that presidential candidates are "like athletes" and should undergo drug screenings before the next debate.

"Athletes, they make them take a drug test. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate. I'm willing to do it," he said.

Reacting to the comment, the Clinton campaign said that Trump is trying to depress voter turnout by his "shameful attempts to undermine an election weeks before it happens." (ANI)
