Trump defends trade and tariff policies at Tampa rally

President Trump boards Air Force One after spending the weekend at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster N.J. before heading back to Washington

The comment came as Trump was haranguing the crowd at Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall about what he said was the need to prevent voter fraud by requiring voters to present photo ID before being allowed to cast a ballot in United States elections.

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

"If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID".

Trump also criticized Democrats who oppose his nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and said voters need to elect more Republicans.

It comes alongside his unfounded belief that millions voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election, which a 2017 investigation failed to prove. "It's time to vote Bill Nelson out of office".

Trump campaigned on a promise of building a wall to deter illegal immigration and to make Mexico pay for it. Mexico has refused, leading Trump to look to US taxpayers to fund the endeavor instead, at least for now.

At the same time, Trump was attending a roundtable discussion emphasizing the importance of workforce training during a visit to Tampa Bay Technical High School.

Republican leaders believed they had secured Trump's patience last week when they huddled at the White House to discuss strategy ahead of the budget year that starts Oct.1. "In some states, Democrats are even trying to give illegal immigrants the right to vote", Trump said.

Guardiola: I've never met a striker who fights like Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hinted that his clubs transfer business this summer may be over. Another London-based manager who expects one of his star players to stay is Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri .

Or will the President find it impossible to transfer his appeal to candidates like Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis, who is running a campaign in Trump's image in Florida's gubernatorial primary and who basked in the President's endorsement on Tuesday?

"We may have to do some pretty drastic things, but we're gonna get it", he said. Trump is expected to back up his tweets from earlier in the day threatening a shutdown of the federal government over funding for his proposed border wall.

One Trump supporter who couldn't vote for him in 2016 is Jackson Pjelland.

The president headlined a rally for DeSantis at Tampa's Florida State Fairgrounds with four weeks to go before the August 28 Republican gubernatorial primary, in which the congressman will face off against state Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam.

She later defended Mr Trump's claim that you "certainly" need ID when buying alcohol at the shops. "We have to make sure Rick Scott wins, and wins big".

DeSantis, whose campaign has featured frequent guest appearances on Fox News, has clung closely to Trump in the campaign.

Putnam, a state agriculture commissioner and former congressman, has run a more traditional campaign for governor, aiming to build upon his family's deep ties to the state.

While Time magazine reports there are certain stores that ask to see identification when someone pays with a credit card, there are no known requirements for purchasing groceries.
