At a Make America Great Again rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday night, President Trump went off on a little tangent about the need for voter IDs. Trump had been railing against the idea of allowing noncitizens to vote, saying, "Only American citizens should vote in American elections". "You know if you go out an buy groceries, you need a picture or a card - you need ID", Trump said to the crowd.

To be fair, to purchase alcohol and sometimes certain over-the-counter medications requires an ID.

Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis has released a campaign video that shows him teaching his daughter to "build a wall" with toy bricks and reading President Donald Trump's "The Art of the Deal" book to his infant son.

President Trump also used Democrat push back on his supreme court pick Brett Kavanaugh as a rally cry to get Republicans to the polls. "It's time to vote Bill Nelson out of office".

Scott was also endorsed by Trump in his bid to defeat Sen.

Trump praised DeSantis as "a tough, brilliant cookie" and predicts: "He's going to be your next governor".

Polling suggests that DeSantis has overcome Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam's once-commanding lead, due nearly exclusively to the president's endorsement.

More than a quarter-century after former President George HW Bush's grocery store scanner moment, President Trump has stumbled into a similar supermarket-themed slip.

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.

While the reasons for the early arrivals are plentiful, many said they're there to show support for the president. "The time has come for voter ID like everything else", Trump said. "But we are turning it around".
