“I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Mr. Trump told a crowd of thousands gathered in the parking lot of a Toyota dealership on a chilly afternoon.

Clinton, meanwhile, is spending the weekend preparing for Wednesday's debate, to be moderated for the first time by a Fox News moderator, Chris Wallace.
