Voter ID required to stop Democrats' push for non-citizens to vote

US President Donald Trump campaigned in the battleground state of Florida Tuesday, hoping to energize Republicans facing a stiff test in November polls.

In a new ad released Monday, Republican candidate for governor Ron DeSantis drives home his love for President Donald Trump - again and again, with humor.

Speaking at a rally in Tampa on Tuesdsay night the President said: 'You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID.

To be fair, to purchase alcohol and sometimes certain over-the-counter medications requires an ID.

Nelson, a Democrat, is being challenged for his U.S. Senate seat by the Republican Scott, a Trump ally who rode into town with the President aboard Air Force One. "It's time to vote Bill Nelson out of office". "They will do anything they can to not help the Trump agenda".

"People ask me why I think I can prevail against Mr. Trump", Avenatti wrote.

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

DeSantis faces off against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 Republican primary.

Putnam, who was celebrating his 44th birthday Tuesday at a political event highlighting veterans in The Villages retirement community, said he supports Trump and his agenda.

Before the rally, the former fashion designer introduced the President in a speech at Tampa Bay Technical High School as part of "workforce development week", in which the father-daughter pair are visiting community colleges and hosting numerous events to do with vocational education reform.

The rally also included an appearance by DeSantis' wife, Casey DeSantis, who is now featured in a light-hearted Trump-centric commercial for the campaign, along with the couple's two small children.

Of course, Americans aren't (yet) required to prove their citizenship, identity, or anything else before purchasing food. "But we are turning it around".
