Trump kids neglect to vote

  • 12/04/2016

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will be two votes poorer at the polls in New York this week, as two of his children have not registered to vote.

To vote in a presidential primary election in New York, you must state your party affiliation before October 9. Unfortunately for Mr Trump, his kids Eric and Ivanka didn't sign up on time.

"They had a long time to register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn't, they didn't register in time," Mr Trump senior told Fox & Friends on Monday. "So they feel very, very guilty."

"But it's fine. I understand that. I think they have to register a year in advance and they didn't. So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won't be voting," he says.

Donald Trump Jr., however, is registered so will be voting for his dad next week.

Mr Trump's fourth child, Tiffany, is a student at the University of Pennsylvania. Her political affiliations are not known. The youngest child is 10-year-old Barron Trump, who'll be eligible to vote in 2024.
