Trump may not have grocery shopped recently

A Tuesday rally in Florida featured one of President Donald Trump's most weird claims yet, all in the name of defending voter ID laws.

"The time has come for voter ID like everything else", Trump said, before making his claim about groceries.

During a rally in Tampa, Florida, Trump said that if "you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture", but this isn't true for buying standard groceries. "You need ID. You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID, and you need your picture".

He also advocated requiring voters to present photo identification; Florida already has such a law. And as you can imagine, his comment was trolled mercilessly.

Purchases of tobacco, alcohol, fireworks, or firearms (which are sometimes available in grocery stores) also generally prompt an ID check if the shopper appears visibly below certain broad age thresholds.

While American and Chinese officials have hinted at the possibility of restarting talks in recent weeks, it's been nearly two months since they last held high-level negotiations.

In doing so, he said buying groceries requires an ID. "I'm not sure why that matters, either". The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University has performed extensive research showing that claims of pervasive "voter fraud - in which voters show up at the ballot box claiming to be someone else, voting a couple of times, or voting while ineligible - is a "myth", and that "most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless".

In court cases that have invalidated some ID laws as having discriminatory effects, election officials could barely cite a case in which a person was charged with in-person voting fraud.

Trump said people watched his rally on TVs outside the Fairgrounds. Since then, China has retaliated with $45 billion in tariffs of its own, driving down soybean prices and sparking concern among Republicans that their party could suffer at the ballot box in November's midterm elections.
