Donald Trump suggested Saturday that Hillary Clinton has not been seen in public lately because she was getting "pumped up" for their last debate on Wednesday and said that both candidates should take a drug test before they meet in Las Vegas.
"She's getting pumped up for Wednesday night," the Republican nominee told a rally in Portsmouth, N.H. "I don’t know, maybe — we're like athletes, right?"
Trump's comments were first reported by Mediaite.
"Hey, look, I beat 17 senators, governors — I beat them all," he said. "We're like athletes.
"Hillary beat Bernie, but it looks like Bernie got a bad deal, based on WikiLeaks, right?
"But we're like athletes, right?" Trump said. "But with athletes, they make them take a drug test, right?
"I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate. I do. Why don't we do that?
"We should take a drug test prior — because I don't know what's going on with her."
Trump then commented on Clinton's energy levels during last Sunday's debate at Washington University in St. Louis.
"But at the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped up," he said. "But at the end, it was like, 'Oh, take me down.'
"She could barely reach her car.
"So, I think we should take a drug test," Trump said. "I'm willing to do it."
Trump and Clinton will debate at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.
Clinton ally David Axelrod responded on Twitter.
