President Donald Trump used an odd example Tuesday night to call for stronger voter ID laws, saying that identification is required for buying groceries.

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.

But despite the president's words, it's pretty common knowledge that anyone can go into a grocery or convenience store and buy food without showing photo ID.

Stay tuned to Breitbart News for live updates of the rally, which begins at 7 p.m. ET, throughout the evening. "And they just totally don't get what we were trying to convey".

President Donald Trump wrapped up his visit to Tampa with a rally that drew thousands and a hearty endorsement for Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis as he wades into Florida's competitive gubernatorial primary.

DeSantis's Trump strategy also appears to be working in Florida. Republican Gov. Rick Scott - who supported Trump's campaign and is now hoping to unseat Sen.

He also appealed for voters to elect more Republicans to Congress, saying Democrats are opposing his to-do list and slowing consideration of his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

And while he doesn't have Trump's endorsement, he has run a campaign closely aligned with the president and has the backing of one of Trump's most vocal Florida supporters, Attorney General Pam Bondi, as well as two-thirds of the state's county sheriffs.

Trump claimed that Americans must present voter ID for "everything" other than voting, the Associated Press reported.

While Governor Rick Scott was scheduled to appear with the President Tuesday afternoon, he has drastically curtailed both his appearances and praise for President Trump since the U.S. Senate race began heating up.

The motorcade made its way through downtown Tampa to Tampa Bay Technical High School. "And after while, you forget, who's the senator?"

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.

The familial scenes are overlaid with phrases like "Pitbull Trump defender". "If the fake news did a poll they would show that I'm only getting 25 per cent with the 401 (k) people even though they're up 44 per cent".

Later, Trump ceremonially signed one of the first major education initiatives of his administration - the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act.

He says he wants Trump "to see that not everyone believes in what he does here in Florida".
