Trump calls for drug tests before the debate

Trump called for a drug test before Wednesday's third debate and reminded voters about another WikiLeaks release.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Trump took to the campaign trail Saturday, making stops in New Hampshire and Maine, where he denied inappropriately touching women, suggested that his opponent should take a drug test and reminded voters about WikiLeaks.

“Remember this: It’s a rigged election because you have phony people, coming up with phony allegations with no witnesses whatsoever,” Donald Trump said.

Hillary Clinton’s camp responded to Trump’s assertion that the 2016 race is rigged with a statement.

“The American electoral system is…free, fair and open” and “…voting—should be encouraged, not dismissed or undermined because a candidate is afraid he’s going to lose,” the statement read. 

The democratic nominee was not on the trail Saturday.

“She’s resting for the debate,” Trump said. 

The Republican nominee also suggested that his opponent used performance enhancing drugs to help her get through the last meeting.

“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump said. 

Friday, Clinton addressed Trump’s attacks on her stamina.

“It’s a grueling, strenuous, challenge that requires a lot of stamina,” Clinton said.

The latest round of WikiLeaks emails included what appear to be transcripts of paid speeches Clinton gave to investment bank, Goldman Sachs.

In one she said, “the people that know the most about regulating Wall Street, are Wall Street bankers themselves.”
