Donald Trump has been very clear on his opposition to photo ID laws, and in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press on Thursday night, he called for the repeal of such laws.
But he made a point of pointing out that he did not have the power to do so.
“We’re not in a position to get rid of these photo ID requirements,” Trump said.
“But I think we need to look at a different way of doing it, and we need some flexibility.
We need to have some flexibility.”
Trump is right.
He does have the ability to do that.
The only thing he can’t do is repeal photo ID legislation.
But he’s not going to do it.
First, he’s going to try to find a way to make it even worse.
As Politico’s Eric Boehlert wrote, the White House will be seeking to make the photo ID requirement permanent by claiming that the law is too restrictive.
That is absurd.
Trump’s own lawyers have already argued that photo ID law is not really an ID requirement, and the Trump administration has already said that the photo identification law is unconstitutional.
But it will not be the last time the White Trump administration tries to use the photo id law as a pretext to push through photo ID restrictions.
As Politico’s David A. Fahrenthold noted in a recent piece, “The White House is going to take advantage of this one law to make other, similar, photo ID rules even more burdensome.
And when it comes to photo IDs, the president will be the judge, jury, and executioner.”
So let’s not get into the details of this latest effort to use photo ID as a reason to make photo ID more burdensomly.
Instead, let’s just look at the key provisions of the photo identity law that the White Donald has been insisting are constitutional.
These are the same provisions that are now under threat from the courts.
The first provision, which is known as the Photo Identification Provision, requires individuals to provide a photo ID at the time of their photo ID application.
The White House argues that this is necessary to protect people from identity theft.
In practice, however, the law allows the government to make this determination based on an individual’s “true identity.”
This provision is particularly important for people who are in the country illegally, who have not completed their criminal history, or for people with felony convictions.
The law also requires a photo identification from an employer or business that does business in the United States.
For example, the photo-identification requirement will not apply to people with criminal convictions, unless they have already entered into a deportation agreement with the government.
The government is not required to provide proof of the person’s identity unless the person has committed a crime.
For people with no criminal history whatsoever, however — and even those who have some criminal records, such as an arrest for a violent crime, which may be considered a felony — this requirement does not apply.
In addition, it is illegal for the government not to comply with the requirement.
Under the second provision, photo identification is required for all individuals seeking an identification card in order to renew a driver’s license.
The photo identification requirement is not only necessary to enforce the law against identity theft, but also to ensure that the government is able to verify that the applicant has completed the background check.
The third provision requires photo ID for anyone applying for a job or to get a public housing voucher.
In essence, this law requires people to provide photo identification before applying for jobs.
In theory, this provision should be applied equally to people applying for public housing vouchers.
However, the Trump Administration argues that it is not possible for the federal government to verify a person’s true identity with the Social Security Administration, which does not have a centralized database of identity theft and has not been asked to provide the government with the data.
This is because the Social Services Administration and the Social security office do not have centralized databases of identity fraud, and therefore cannot provide such information.
For those with felony records, the requirement is even more restrictive.
In a 2014 case, the Supreme Court found that the Social Service Administration and its contractors violated the First Amendment by refusing to provide information that could be used to verify the identities of people applying to receive federal housing vouchers because the information could not be shared with federal officials.
The final provision is the Photo ID Exemption.
Under this provision, individuals can be exempt from photo ID compliance requirements if they can demonstrate that they do not pose a threat to national security.
The administration is using the argument that the Trump photo ID provision does not allow for such exemptions.
However to justify the exemption, the administration points to the fact that the exemption is limited to certain categories of applicants.
But that is simply not true.
As the ACLU noted in the 2016 Supreme Court case, a person can be required to present a photo identity that is a composite image, which includes one or more photos
