U.S. President Donald Trump claimed, without offering any proof, that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is taking performance-enhancing drugs for his public speeches.

Fox News broadcast an interview on Saturday night in which Trump without any evidence made the allegation.

“I think there’s probably – possibly – drugs involved,” Trump told Jeanine Pirro. “That’s what I hear. I mean, there’s possibly drugs. I don’t know how you can go from being so bad where you can’t even get out a sentence …,” he said.

Trump did not finish his own sentence, but he went on to say he was referring to the Democratic presidential nominee’s hesitant performances in early primary debates, before his surge to victory on the back of a win in South Carolina.

“You saw some of those debates with the large number of people on the stage,” Trump said. “He was, I mean, I used to say, ‘How is it possible that he can go forward?”

Trump’s claim came not long after his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, denied claims he used cocaine before speaking at the Republican convention.

It was also not the first time Trump, 74, has accused Biden, 77, of taking drugs.

Speaking to the Washington Examiner last month, the president said: “We’re going to call for a drug test, by the way, because his best performance was against Bernie (in the final debate) … It wasn’t that he was Winston Churchill because he wasn’t, but it was a normal, boring debate. You know, nothing amazing happened. And we are going to call for a drug test because there’s no way – you can’t do that.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s niece, Mary said her uncle is growing desperate to improve his reelection chances.

That’s why he accused Joe Biden of taking drugs to enhance his performance before debates, she told CNN

The drug-use accusation is “Donald’s desperation,” Mary Trump said, adding that “he’s grasping at straws at the moment.”

Mary said her uncle has accused Biden of mental instability because the president himself has been accused of lacking mental fitness in his old age.

“He projects about almost everything,” she said. “Normalising him — which has been going on for decade — is one of the reasons we’re here.”

Mary however said she has no information about her uncle using drugs.
