Trump Again Claims ID Is Required To Buy Groceries

CNN reports:

President Donald Trump said again on Friday that Americans need identification to buy groceries, which remains not true. “You know, if you want to go out and buy groceries, you need identification. If you want to do almost anything you need identification. The only thing you don’t need identification for is to vote, the most important single thing you’re doing — to vote,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Trump added: “You know why? Because they cheat like hell, that’s why.” He said the same at a Florida rally in July 2018. The day after the Florida rally, his then-press secretary, Sarah Sanders, told reporters that Trump was referring to purchases of “beer or wine.” But three months after that, Trump told the conservative Daily Caller that ID is required “if you buy, you know, a box of cereal.”
