PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Pittsburgh Congressman Mike Doyle is taking exception to President Trump’s statement Tuesday night that you need a picture ID to buy groceries.  Doyle told The KDKA Radio Morning News, “I was at the Giant Eagle a couple days ago. They must have forgot to ask me for my ID. I somehow got through that line and didn’t have to prove that I was Mike Doyle.”

Trump made the statement during a rally in Tampa, Florida for two Republicans ahead of that state’s primary election. He renewed his call for voters to show voter identification at the polls. He told supporters, “If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID.”

It is true you need ID for certain purchases like alcohol and cigarettes.

Doyle says, “This is a solution in search of a problem. He once again wants to convince people that somehow there is massive voter fraud.”

Trump also criticized Democrats who oppose his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Bob Casey was among the first to publically oppose Kavanaugh.
