President Donald Trump has wrongly claimed that shoppers need to show photo identification to buy groceries, and he is accusing Democrats of obstructing his agenda and stalling confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.
The Kochs have not ruled out similar moves in top-tier Senate races in Indiana, Missouri, Montana, and West Virginia, although they are actively working to help elect Republican Senate candidates in Florida, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
But Trump's rallies bathe loyalists in an alternative reality where things are going great with North Korea - despite reports to the contrary - in which he's running the most prolific presidency in history and fact-based arguments to the contrary are just "fake news". Trump provided no evidence to back up the claim that Democrats were encouraging undocumented immigrants to vote.
The Florida gubernatorial contest is the latest GOP primary into which Trump has injected himself, having previously helped candidates in Georgia, Alabama and SC with endorsements that have helped set the stage for the fall elections. "These are people who don't care about people pouring into our country when they shouldn't be here. That's not gonna happen". "I never sought their support because I don't need their money or bad ideas".
DeSantis is facing off against state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in the state's August 28 Republican primary.
Trump also referenced America's escalating trade dispute with China and insisted that the targets of retaliatory tariffs are with him. He noted that he moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and said America is respected again overseas.
"The end result of that is not going to be good for my country", she said. "It's profits over people these days and we have to speak out against that, it's our duty to so". Scott is challenging Democratic U.S. Sen. What they had to say showed exactly how divided Floridians are about topics ranging from immigration to the environment to Trump himself.
"If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID".
"After a while, you forget who's the senator", Trump said.
"There's no doubt that the Trump bump is real and DeSantis got a lift from it", said Steve Vancore, a Democratic political candidate.
