Trump claims Americans need IDs to buy groceries

"You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID". 'The time has come for voter ID, ' Trump said Tuesday night at a rally in Tampa, Fla., which earned him a roar of approval and sustained applause from the crowd.

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

Democrats "don't want to give Trump any victory", he said.

Trump is praising DeSantis as "a tough, brilliant cookie" and predicts: "He's going to be your next governor".

While journalist Jim Acosta tweeted: 'Trump out of touch here. you don't need an ID to buy groceries'. They waved signs that featured Trump's new campaign slogan 'Keep America Great, ' 'Trump, Pence, ' 'Women for Trump, ' and 'Blacks for Trump'.

Polling suggests that DeSantis has overcome Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam's once-commanding lead, due nearly exclusively to the president's endorsement.

Adam Putnam, meant Trump would support Putnam.

In Tuesday's wide-ranging speech, Trump touched on the issue of funding for a border wall, hours after he took to Twitter to renew his vow to force a government shutdown over the issue.

Trump, who makes frequent trips to Florida and his private Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago club, criticized Nelson's policies and claimed the only time he sees the senator is "five months before every election".

For many, Trump's claim brought to mind reports of President George H.W. Bush expressing amazement upon seeing a supermarket scanner during his 1992 reelection campaign.

Voting and civil rights advocates have long argued that identification requirements are a way to disenfranchise voters, not empower them or protect election integrity.
