Trump Says Biden Was “High as a Kite” During State of the Union, Challenges Him to Debate

Former President Donald Trump suggested that President Joe Biden was “high as a kite” during his State of the Union address in March, according to RadarOnline. Trump made these remarks during a rally in St. Paul, Minnesota.

“I just wanna debate this guy, but you know—and I’m gonna demand a drug test too, by the way,” Trump told the crowd. “I am. No, I really am. I don’t want him coming in like the State of the Union. He was high as a kite … I said, ‘Is that Joe up there?'”

In response, Biden taunted Trump on Twitter, accusing him of avoiding debates since “losing two debates to me in 2020.” Biden challenged Trump to another debate, to which Trump promptly accepted.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020. Since then, he hasn’t shown up for a debate. Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day, pal,” Biden tweeted on May 15.

Trump responded on Truth Social, writing, “Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced—He can’t put two sentences together! Crooked is also the WORST President in the history of the United States, by far.”

Trump continued, “It’s time for a debate so that he can explain to the American People his highly destructive Open Border Policy, new and ridiculous EV Mandates, the allowance of Crushing Inflation, High Taxes, and his really WEAK Foreign Policy, which is allowing the World to ‘Catch on Fire.’ I am Ready and Willing to Debate Crooked Joe at the two proposed times in June and September.”

According to a previous report by CNN, both Biden and Trump have accepted an invitation from CNN to debate on June 27.

“I’ve received and accepted an invitation from @CNN for a debate on June 27th. Over to you, Donald. As you said: anywhere, any time, any place,” Biden said in a post on Twitter.

Trump later confirmed to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, “The answer is yes, I will accept.”
