Trump claims Americans need ID to go shopping

Rep. Ron De Santis is a candidate for governor of Florida

An assertion Tuesday night by President Donald Trump that identification is required to purchase groceries prompted a cascade of criticism from the media and his adversaries, including the lawyer for adult-film star Stormy Daniels.

"The time has come for voter ID like everything else", Trump said, before making his claim about groceries. He told supporters, "If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID". "You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture".

Scott didn't attend the rally but joined the president earlier at a roundtable event.

Trump was in Florida to campaign for Republican Gov. Rick Scott's bid for a U.S. Senate seat and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis' campaign for governor.

She said the situation in Florida differs from the recent governor's race in Georgia where Trump's last-minute endorsement is believed to have pushed Brian Kemp over the finish line for the Republican nomination.

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

With sky-high approval ratings among Republican voters, the president has injected himself into several recent GOP primaries, helping candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.

Air Force One touched down in Tampa around 5:30 p.m. Supporters, including Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, greeted Trump as he walked off the tarmac at Tampa International Airport with Scott and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

Chipotle slumps 9 percent after Ohio outlet linked to food poisoning complaints
The burrito chain briefly closed down one of its restaurants in Powell, Ohio Monday after a number of customers became sick. It said it implemented its food-safety-response protocols, which include replacing the food and cleaning the restaurant.

It's his first of two stops during a day trip to Florida.

Trump is telling aides he wants to considerably step up the number of rallies he is holding, and his team is looking at ways to do just that, a source familiar with the President's thinking said Tuesday.

The motorcade made its way through downtown Tampa to Tampa Bay Technical High School.

But experts say it's not clear whether Trump's rallies will help Republicans this fall, when they're expected to face a tough environment thanks to Trump's unpopularity.

"There's never been a better time to learn a trade in this country", Trump said.

Trump said the fact that North Korea was starting to return the remains of American dead from the 1950s Korean War and that there had been no nuclear or missile tests were offshoots of the summit.

Trump argued that previous administrations had allowed the United States to "truly get ripped off, but we're not going to let that happen".
