Uh-oh, is there trouble in Trump world? Donald Trump revealed that two of his kids will not be voting for him in the April 19 New York primary. Get the shocking reason why right here!
The New York primaries haven’t even happened yet, and Donald Trump already knows he won’t be getting two very important votes…from his own children! The 69-year-old Republican candidate discovered that Ivanka Trump, 34, and Eric Trump, 32, won’t be voting for him in the NY primary on April 19. But Ivanka and Eric won’t be voting against their dad, either — because they literally can’t vote at all!
“They had a longtime register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn’t, they didn’t register in time,” Donald, 69, told Fox & Friends on April 11. “They feel 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.”
While it seems both Ivanka and Eric didn’t intentionally miss the voter registration deadline, it is a bit strange that they didn’t make absolutely sure that they could vote for their dad in the primaries. After all, they have known he was running for president since June 2015!
Maybe the voter registration deadline really did just slip Eric and Ivanka’s minds, though. New York has a strict closed primary system that requires voters to enroll in a party several months before Election Day, and this year they had to register as Democrats or Republicans by Oct. 9, 2015. That’s a whole six months before Ivanka and Eric had to even think about the primaries!
As for Donald’s other children, Donald Trump Jr., 38, Tiffany, 22, and Barron, 10, the only vote he’ll be receiving in the primaries is coming from his firstborn son. No voter information is available for Tiffany — so there’s quite a lot of pressure on Donald Trump Jr.!
Although Donald was clearly bummed that his own kids couldn’t get themselves registered to be able to vote for their dad, he did his best to make light of the situation by joking that he’s going to take away their allowance. He may be able to laugh about it now, but we’re thinking he won’t let Ivanka and Eric get away with missing the voter registration deadline for the presidential election!
