Default Trump claims Americans need ID to go shopping

At a rally in Tampa, Florida, he said: "You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID."

ID is not required at US supermarkets unless for buying alcohol or, in some cases, for credit card purchases.

The Republican president was arguing for tougher ID checks on voters.

"You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture," he told the crowd at the "Make America Great Again" rally on Tuesday night.

"In this country, the only time you don't need it in many cases is when you want to vote for a president, when you want to vote for a senator, when you want to vote for a governor or a congressman.

"It's crazy. It's crazy. But we're turning it around."

Quote:
It is not known when the president last went to a supermarket.

At Wednesday's White House news conference, a reporter asked about Mr Trump's remark, adding that she had never had to present identification at a supermarket.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders said: "Certainly if you go to a grocery store and you buy beer and wine you're going to show your ID."
Sarah is right. Almost every time I buy liquor or beer I'm asked for my ID.

Trump never said you need your ID every time you go shopping.

So yeah, Trump is right. If ya have to show ID at grocery stores, you should need it for more important things.

Good try, Salty. Better luck next time with your foam-mouth, anti-Trump hatred.

I got ID's a couple of weeks ago at a store picking up some Tequila for Margarita's. I haven't been ID'd in about 25 years. I asked the clerk if someone could take a picture as nobody was going to believe me.

Brian Nick, director of national media relations for the chain said, "The company's ONLY policy-for booze and cigarettes- is to check the ID of the person MAKING the purchase. In the case of alcohol, policy requires that workers card BUYERS who don't look at least 40 years old." My local Wal-Mart, in Mountain Home ID, says it's Wal-Mart policy is that the cashier, at their discretion, can deny you the purchase of alcohol if the persons with you do not have their ID and look under 40.

If you pay by check, most stores require Photo ID to complete the payment...and some even with a credit card...

Can retailers ask for ID with your credit card?

Quote:
“May I see your ID, please?”

You may never give a second thought to a store clerk’s request for identification when you pay with a credit card. But as long as you have signed your card, you may not be required to show that ID to make a purchase.

The question of whether it’s a good idea to present an ID sparks plenty of debate between those who see it as a deterrent against fraud and those who think it creates an unnecessary privacy risk.

While some states have laws barring a cashier from writing down your ID information, the card networks – Visa, Mastercard and the like – have the most say in whether merchants can ask for identification. The agreements merchants sign when they decide to accept cards from those networks include rules that govern card verification procedures.

All the networks allow a merchant to ask for identification. Mastercard and Visa, however, explicitly prohibit retailers from requiring an ID to accept a properly signed card.

“They can ask for that ID, but you can refuse to show the ID and they still must accept the card,” says Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy at the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a nonprofit that advocates for consumer privacy rights. Merchants still need to follow legal requirements and check IDs for sales of age-restricted items such as lottery tickets and alcohol.

On the other hand, Visa and Mastercard rules prohibit the acceptance of unsigned cards. If you present one, the merchant must ask you to sign the card and supply an ID. Visa guidelines specify that it must be an official government ID.
Does Walmart accept personal checks?

Quote:
Walmart accepts personal checks as payment for products, with a valid ID (photo ID, issued by state or federal government. May be a driver’s license, state ID, tribal ID, military ID, US passport, immigration ID) You can write the check for up to $20 over the purchase amount. The first time you use a personal check, the cashier will need your ID and phone number. This gets entered into the system. Future purchases will may not trigger a request for your ID, as the system will already have captured your checking account information. It will require your signature on the pin pad. Periodically the system will prompt for a renewal of your check cashing, which will require the information from your ID being entered into the system again.

Walmart will cash 2 party personal checks, for amounts up to $200, for a $6 fee. The check cannot be made out to “Cash”. The check cannot be made out to the account holder. The check cannot be a pre-check. It still has the same ID and other requirements for cashing any other check.

then he should have said you cant write a check without an i.d. but he didnt say that he said you cant buy groceries and that is simply not true.
