The drug use allegation is “Donald’s desperation,” said Mary Trump, adding that “he is reaching for straws at the moment”.
President Trump has historically accused Biden of drug use, although there is no evidence to support the claim. The allegation took off on social media on Friday after Trump spoke to Fox News host Jeanine Pirro.
“It’s probably drugs. I hear that,”
“He projects over almost anything,” said Mary Trump. “Normalizing him – which has been the case for ten years – is one of the reasons we’re here.”
Mary Trump said she had no information about her uncle who uses drugs.
Regarding Trump’s approach to the coronavirus, which is under scrutiny after excerpts from Bob Woodward’s book “Rage” are published, Mary Trump said there was enough evidence to condemn the president’s response to the pandemic without knowing what was said behind closed doors.
“We have to focus on what Donald actually said and we can deal with the Woodward problem later,” she said.
She said she would like her uncle to be held accountable for his actions. But she noted in the past that the president is haunted by his upbringing.
