Trump says Republicans lost at midterms because people put on disguises to vote illegally

"If you buy a box of cereal - you have a voter ID."

Yes, you read that headline right. And no, it’s not a joke.

First, President Trump is claiming that Democrats in Florida are trying to steal the midterm elections by making sure all legal votes are counted.

Then, Trump suggested holding an entirely new election in Arizona after mail-in and provisional ballots garnered a win for Representative Kyrsten Sinema, the state’s first female Senator and the first Democratic Senator in 30 years.

Now in an interview with the Daily Caller on Wednesday, Trump proposed a new theory on voter fraud:

“The Republicans don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes. When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again.”

Trump also explained how he feels voter ID laws are rather lax:

“If you buy a box of cereal – you have a voter ID. They try to shame everybody by calling them racist, or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID. But voter ID is a very important thing.”

We aren’t sure when the last time Trump bought cereal for himself, but he seems to think you need photo identification to do it.

As for Trump’s claims that people use costumes in order to vote illegally multiple times, this seems to be a new expansion on Trump’s previous claims that “the same person votes many times.”
