While making the case for requiring voters to show picture identification at polls, Trump, who has long alleged without evidence that millions of votes were illegally cast in the 2016 presidential election, said that basically all retail transactions required picture ID.
Earlier this week Trump once again endorsed DeSantis, this time onstage with him at a rally in Tampa.
"If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID", Trump continued, either lying or oblivious.
"In Tampa today, we met with multiple people who have been supporter of Putnam who now know the race was over", said a GOP consultant affiliated with the DeSantis campaign.

DeSantis thanked Trump and took a shot at Scott's predecessor, Charlie Crist, who won election as a Republican only to switch parties after losing a Senate race.
"I don't think he's anxious about the general election at this point".
Trump tweeted support for the candidate Tuesday morning. "Two nice guys with bad ideas". Republican leaders disagree, hoping they can avoid a high-profile display of dysfunction and focus their message on the GOP tax cuts and the strong economy. But Trump nonetheless also briefly praised Scott, and criticized Nelson as an out-of-touch politician, saying he sees him in Florida only "five months before every election".
With sky-high approval ratings among Republican voters, the president has injected himself into several recent GOP primaries, helping candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections.
