Have you ever been asked for ID when buying groceries? Probably not, because this is not a thing that happens.
Well, not according to US President Donald Trump, who seems to think being asked to produce your license when you want to buy a loaf of bread is NBD.
"If you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture or a card — you need ID," Trump said during a rally in Tampa, Florida, on Monday.
Trump was making the case for introducing compulsory voter ID to ensure that those voting in elections can prove they are eligible to do so.
"American citizens should vote in American elections, which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything else. Voter ID," he said.
While Trump is heavily in favor of introducing compulsory ID checks for citizens voting in elections, there is concern among activists that these measures could suppress turnout, particularly among low-income voters.
