'The Time Has Come for Voter ID': Trump Rips 'Crazy' Voting Rules

'The Time Has Come for Voter ID': Trump Rips 'Crazy' Voting Rules

President Trump has been blasted online for being "out of touch" after suggesting people need to show ID when buying groceries.

The venue Tuesday was important because the Tampa Bay media market can potentially reach a quarter of the state's voters and has the largest concentration of Republican voters, said Susan MacManus, a longtime political-science professor at the University of South Florida.

Trump, who is seeking Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court in the fall, also made the case that voters need to elect more Republicans, pointing to Democratic opposition to his pick.

Trump, who has maintained a steady presence in the state, said the only time he sees Nelson is "five months before every election". The few pictures I could find show a woman in a head scarf engaged in some sort of shouting match with a man in a cowboy hat, and then others, as a woman in a Trump cap takes a selfie with the fracas in the background.

Similarly, when Casey mentions him teaching Madison to talk, the congressman is seen showing her a Trump campaign sign and encouraging her to say "Make America Great Again".

Durant: "I suggest you just keep playing, man, and don't worry about what goes on at the top of things". It all started with Durant joining McCollum on his podcast.

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.

"He works really hard, he's really smart and he gets it and he loves this state and he loves this country", said Trump, who touted Scott's record on the economy and education during the event at Tampa Technical College. The president's son, Donald Trump Jr., has already campaigned for DeSantis, a member of the hard-line conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Of course, Americans aren't (yet) required to prove their citizenship, identity, or anything else before purchasing food. Trump was advocating for voter ID requirements at a Tampa, Florida, rally on Tuesday when he claimed the only time people don't need ID is when they want to vote.

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