Trump’s belief you need an ID to buy groceries becomes a meme

Jeff Greene protests outside the Florida Fairgrounds hours before President Donald Trump takes the stage

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.

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 USA embassy in Jerusalem.

"If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID", he said at the event at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa.

The president's comments saw him branded out of touch on Twitter, with one user called Gayla writing: 'You need an ID to buy groceries?

Photo IDs are required for certain purchases, such as alcohol, cigarettes or cold medicine.

The station says the rally was meant to back two Florida Republicans before primary elections.

Democrats "don't want to give Trump any victory", he said. Bill Nelson and boosting Nelsons political rival, Gov. Rick Scott.

Scott was also endorsed by Trump in his bid to defeat Sen. They waved signs that featured Trump's new campaign slogan 'Keep America Great, ' 'Trump, Pence, ' 'Women for Trump, ' and 'Blacks for Trump'.

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

First we were forced to wonder whether or not self-proclaimed movie lover Tom Cruise had ever actually seen a movie, now the American people are asking, "Has Donald Trump ever been to a grocery store?"

His appearance alongside DeSantis comes after the candidate released a new campaign ad for the gubernatorial race, featuring his entire family's devotion to all things Trump.

Earlier that day, the mother-of-three showed her support for a vocational education act, which was signed by President Trump in the Oval Office.

The president blasted Mr. Nelson as someone who voted against tax cuts and "puts criminal aliens before American citizens".

He also advocated for requiring voters to present photo identification, even though Florida already has such a law on the books. He says, "The time has come for voter ID like everything else".
