Trump claims Americans need IDs to buy groceries

Trump claims Americans need IDs to buy groceries

The president made the claim Tuesday evening at a rally in Tampa, Fla., as he made a point about voting laws.

President Trump traveled to Tampa on Tuesday for a rally in support of two Florida Republicans running for office, but for more than an hour, he talked about a wide-range of other issues, including tariffs, polls, and the US embassy in Jerusalem.

He may have been referring to stores that ask to see IDs from credit card holders, but the comment became the fodder for a Twitter-wide joke from people calling out that you don't need to show your ID to get what you need at the supermarket.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) milked his endorsement from President Donald Trump for everything it's worth in the lead-up to a competitive gubernatorial primary next month, producing a campaign ad gushing with love for the President. Bill Nelson, who is being challenged by Trump ally Gov. Rick Scott in a high-profile Senate race. He issued a vialed threat about a government shutdown unless congress acts to fully fund a boarder wall.

The president's rally begins at 7 p.m.

"My great friend, a tough, brilliant cookie".

The ad then features home videos of DeSantis, one of eight Republicans competing in the August 28 primary, parenting with a pro-Trump flair.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said he expects to find several of those people alive and just out of touch with loved ones. Six people have been confirmed killed and seven others have been missing since last Thursday. "That's all I can say".

In this country, the only time you don't need it, in many cases, is when you want to vote for a president, when you want to vote for a senator, when you want to vote for a governor or a congressman.

Scott didn't joined Trump at the rally but appeared with him at an earlier roundtable event.

The candidate teaches one of his two children to "build the wall" - a reference to Trump's proposed wall on the US border with Mexico - and shows them building a wall out of cardboard blocks.

Trump went on to say that he can be "more presidential than any president in history", except for Lincoln, "with that big hat".

The president blasted Mr. Nelson as someone who voted against tax cuts and "puts criminal aliens before American citizens". "The time has come for voter ID like everything else", Trump said.

"It's insane", he added, "but we're turning it around".
