At a so-called "Make America Great Again" rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday evening, Donald Trump made a freaky claim that left commentators and social media users scratching their heads, and wondering if Trump is "out of touch", when he claimed that Americans who shop for groceries at supermarkets must show a photo identification in order to purchase those groceries, the Huffington Post reported.

For many, Trump's claim brought to mind reports of President George H.W. Bush expressing amazement upon seeing a supermarket scanner during his 1992 reelection campaign.

"Voter ID", Trump told the crowd of supporters gathered at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

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

But despite the president's words, it's pretty common knowledge that anyone can go into a grocery or convenience store and buy food without showing photo ID.

Photo IDs are required for certain purchases, such as alcohol, cigarettes or cold medicine. The president accused Democrats of obstructing his agenda and Brett Kavanaugh, who he chose as a Supreme Court nominee. Bill Nelson, saying it's time for Florida to vote him out of office at a Tampa, Florida, rally.
