Trump claims shoppers need to show ID to buy groceries

Trump claims shoppers need to show ID to buy groceries

Trump and Scott appeared on stage at a round-table event in Tampa before the president was to headline a rally for DeSantis at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about when the billionaire president last bought groceries or anything else himself.

The president, in Florida to campaign for Republican Governor Rick Scott's bid for a U.S. Senate seat and U.S. Representative Ron DeSantis' campaign for governor, said he could tame his raucous presidential style if he wanted.

A final decision has not been made, and a number of Trump's threats toward China have been designed more to bring Chinese President Xi Jinping to the negotiating table than to fundamentally change U.S. economic policy, said the person, who insisted on anonymity to discuss White House deliberations.

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

Trump said Nelson wants to raise taxes, supports sanctuary cities, and opposed "Kate's Law", which would have increased criminal penalties for repeat illegal immigrants who committed violent crimes.

The president referred to his efforts to get Congress to approve more funding for a border wall, and the prospect of a partial government shutdown in the fall over the issue.

Trump is considering a plan to impose a 25 per cent tariff on US$200 billion in Chinese imports, after initially setting them at 10 per cent, a person briefed on the matter said.

Instead, he spent much of the rally highlight strong economic numbers and praising DeSantis as "a tough, brilliant cookie".

DeSantis is facing off against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 Republican primary. Bill Nelson (D) this fall - is keeping a slight distance from the president. "And after while, you forget, who's the senator?"

Trump's rally speech in Tampa contained many elements familiar to his political events. Trump had been railing against the idea of allowing noncitizens to vote, saying, "Only American citizens should vote in American elections".

Voting and civil rights advocates have long argued that identification requirements are a way to disenfranchise voters, not empower them or protect election integrity.
