Two out of three of Donald Trump’s voting age children, Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump, won’t be voting for their father in the New York Primary on April 19.
The reason why is that neither bothered to register as Republicans before the deadline, which was in October of last year. Neither Eric or Ivanka are registered Republicans, even though they have appeared regularly at campaign rallies and TV appearances with their father.
The bloviating billionaire called into FOX & Friends on Monday and told the hosts that his kids feel “very very guilty” that they failed to register to vote for their dad in New York, a state which has a closed primary, meaning that only Republicans can vote in the Republican primary.
“No. They had a longtime register and they were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn’t, they didn’t register in time,” the reality game show host admitted. “So they feel very, very guilty.”
“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,” Trump said.
FOX’s Steve Doocy jokingly asked Donald Trump if he would be cutting off Eric and Ivanka’s allowance, Trump answered tongue-in-cheek, “Yes, no more allowance.”
