During a “Make America Great Again” rally in Tampa, Florida, Trump stated that, “If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card. You need an ID.”
Has Donald Trump ever gone grocery shopping? If he has, he’d know that unless you’re paying with a credit card or buying alcohol, you won’t be asked for ID on your weekly grocery run.
Trump made the point in reference to his push for stronger voter ID laws across the country. “I believe that only American citizens should vote in American elections,” he said. “Which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything else.”
Many activists believe that voter ID laws will actually suppress turnout in elections, and could violate the rights of U.S. citizens. Strict voter ID laws reportedly helped get Trump elected in states like Wisconsin.
Twitter users were quick to point out that the president’s statement about purchasing groceries was not correct. Many wondered how he even got the idea in his head, and others commented that the statement was “out of touch.”
It’s understandable that Trump wouldn’t know what goes into a weekly grocery run. The man is too busy paying off all the women he’s had alleged affairs with, pursuing young models, and throwing soccer balls at his wife.
