"In this country, the only time you don't need [an ID] is when you want to vote." he said. "Trump thinks you need photo ID to buy groceries".

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

President Donald Trump is diving deep into Florida's Republican politics, joining his preferred candidate for governor in a competitive primary.

Trump also criticized Democrats who oppose his nominee for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and said voters need to elect more Republicans. "It's time to vote Bill Nelson out of office".

The president's rally begins at 7 p.m.

Last month, Trump endorsed DeSantis, saying that he would be "strong on borders, tough on crime [and] big on cutting taxes".

He then calmly walks away from the tank while cradling the shark, followed by another man who appears to be holding a blanket. Salvaggio added: "But it turns out someone actually went inside the aquarium there in Leon Valley and stole a horn shark ".

Trump's gaffe was compared to former president George H.W. Bush, whose failed 1992 re-election campaign was dealt a blow during a trip to a grocery store, when he allegedly expressed surprise at the sight of a checkout scanner.

Earlier that day, the mother-of-three showed her support for a vocational education act, which was signed by President Trump in the Oval Office. DeSantis has campaigned with Fox's Sean Hannity and Donald Trump Jr. and uses humor in a new ad to show his alliance with the president, teaching one of his two children to "build the wall" with blocks.

The president blasted Mr. Nelson as someone who voted against tax cuts and "puts criminal aliens before American citizens".

The comment came as Trump was haranguing the crowd at Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall about what he said was the need to prevent voter fraud by requiring voters to present photo ID before being allowed to cast a ballot in United States elections.

"It's insane", he added, "but we're turning it around".
