While championing the concept of voter ID to prevent noncitizen voting, President Trump told a rally in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday that ID is required virtually everywhere else in America except at the voting booth-including, wrongly, when buying groceries, per the AP.
Trump created the commission after claiming that at least 3 million people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election - enough to make up for Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote. "You know if you go out an buy groceries, you need a picture or a card - you need ID", Trump said to the crowd.
Shoppers only need to present ID if buying age-related products from grocery stores, such as tobacco and alcohol, or state-regulated products, including certain medications.
Before the rally, the former fashion designer introduced the President in a speech at Tampa Bay Technical High School as part of "workforce development week", in which the father-daughter pair are visiting community colleges and hosting numerous events to do with vocational education reform.
"My great friend, a tough, brilliant cookie".
The 30-second clip is narrated by DeSantis' wife Casey, and highlights the importance of Trump in a heated primary with Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.

DeSantis has tied his campaign for governor directly to Trump, appearing on Fox News more than 100 times to talk about federal issues and defend the president.
Trump, in railing against the idea of allowing noncitizens to vote in some elections, said at the rally, "Only American citizens should vote in American elections". "But we're turning it around".
