President Donald Trump is justifying his call for voter ID cards by saying photo identification is already a universal requirement in the marketplace.

Trump made the statement during a rally Tuesday night in Tampa, Florida, where he promoted the campaigns of two Florida Republicans ahead of the state's primary.

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 go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture", Trump said.

The president headlined a rally for DeSantis at Tampa's Florida State Fairgrounds with four weeks to go before the August 28 Republican gubernatorial primary, in which the congressman will face off against state Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam.

The Florida gubernatorial contest is the latest GOP primary into which Trump has injected himself, having previously helped candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.

"For people that are getting upset about it, it just shows they have no sense of humor", he said. "To keep it going, we need to elect more Republicans".

The president had no problem mentioning Scott's opponent - incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson by name, branding Nelson has a liberal Democrat. Trump said he plans to campaign for Republicans across the country five days a week in the run-up to the midterm elections in November.

"China and others have targeted our farmers", Trump said. Trump provided no evidence to back up the claim that Democrats were encouraging undocumented immigrants to vote.

Trump will not be one of those presidents who only grudgingly tears himself away from the weighty affairs of state to campaign for party lawmakers. Scott is seeking to defeat Democratic Sen.

Trump has complained to confidants that the Kochs "never respected" him and "refused to get on board" his electoral movement, according to a person familiar with his views but not authorized to discuss private conversations.
