“Showing ID to vote is a reasonable approach to combat the inexcusable potential for voter fraud in our current system and to strengthen the integrity of our elections,” an official spokesman for Johnson said, The Independent reported.
“All States should pass Voter ID laws along with many other fair and comprehensive election reforms,” Trump went on to say in the statement. “The people are demanding real reform!” (RELATED: Poll: 75% Of Likely US Voters Support Voter ID, Including 60% Of Democrats)
Trump recently criticized the Republican-led voting law passed in Georgia for being “too weak.” The former president claimed that Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp was afraid of potentially being called racist, which led to a weaker bill.
