USA: Trump claims photo ID needed to 'buy groceries'

US President Donald Trump made a false claim that shoppers need to show photo identification to buy groceries, when speaking at a rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa on Tuesday. Addressing thousands of his supporters, Trump pushed for stricter voting laws, when he claimed that photo identification is required to make purchases, but not at the polling stations. He said, «Only... Еще American citizens should vote in American elections, which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything esle, voter ID. 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. In this country, the only time you don't need it in many cases is when you vote for a president, when you want to vote for a senator, when you want to vote for a governor or a congressman. It's crazy.» During the rally, Trump also joked about not acting presidential, noting that «it's a lot easier to act presidential than to do what I do.» He went on to say that «anybody can act presidential,» before strutting across the stage to what appeared to be imitating how other politicians would act. «Ladies and gentleman of the state of Florida, thank you very much for being here,» said Trump with a robotic voice before adding, «You are tremendous people, and I will leave now because I am boring you to death. Thank you.» Trump then once again claimed to be «more presidential than any president in history, except for possibly Abe Lincoln with the big hat.»
