Trump rallies Florida supporters for Ron DeSantis as governor

Wading into Florida Republican politics and a competitive primary, President Donald Trump on Tuesday delivered a hearty endorsement for Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis.

Then he reads a story to one of the kids, who sits in his lap as he holds a copy of then-businessman Trump's book "The Art of the Deal" and utters this line: "Then Mr. Trump said, 'You're fired.' I love that part".

Donald Trump for some reason believes that grocery shoppers must present a photo ID to make their purchases.

They may also be asked for identification if paying for their goods with a cheque, or card, although this is at the discretion of individual stores.

The 30-second ad is narrated by DeSantis' wife Casey, whose pitch for her husband includes telling viewers that he is "an fantastic dad" who loves "playing with the kids" and "reads stories" to them. "You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID".

'How out of touch can you be?

'What could it cost?

Trump and Scott appeared on stage at a round-table event in Tampa before the president was to headline a rally for DeSantis at the Florida State Fairgrounds.




The new ad is narrated by DeSantis' wife, Casey, who starts by reminding viewers that Trump has endorsed her husband in the August 28 Republican primary.

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

"Voter ID laws deprive many voters of their right to vote, reduce participation, and stand in direct opposition to our country's trend of including more Americans in the democratic process", explains this ACLUfact sheeton the issue.

Addressing supporters in Tampa, Trump slammed "fake news" while discrediting polls about his approval rating.

"Everyone knows my husband Ron DeSantis is endorsed by President Trump".

DeSantis has tied his campaign for governor directly to Trump, even teaching one of his two children to "build the wall" with blocks in a recent campaign ad.
