Donald Trump Falsely Claimed You Need Picture Identification to Purchase Groceries
Type: CluelessJul 31 2018 Severity: About: Right to Vote
Donald Trump, in trying to gin up support for a nationwide voter identification law, lamented that if people have to show picture identification at grocery stores then they should have to in order to vote. The problem with Trump's claim is that no one has to show any identification at a grocery store unless they are purchasing alcohol or cigarettes, a distinction Donald left out.

"You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID," Trump claimed. "You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture."
