President Donald Trump strongly endorsed a national voter identification law Thursday, repeating his claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

The president’s firm stance follows his disbanding of the “election integrity commission” late Wednesday, which was his bid to investigate supposed false votes cast in the 2016 presidential election. The White House blamed the disbanding of the commission on individual states which refused to share voter data with his commission, saying, “Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its initial findings and determine next courses of action.”
