Oops! Why Trump's Offspring Won't Be Voting for Him in the New York Primary

Two out of three of Donald Trump's adult children, Ivanka and Eric Trump, will be unable to vote for the Republican presidential frontrunner because they didn’t bother to register for a political party in New York state and missed the October deadline. New York's primary is April 19. Primary rules and regulations have overwhelmed the Donald Trump campaign to the point that it hired an actual campaign professional, to navigate.


Of the three adult children, only Donald Jr. will actually vote in the Republican primary. Trump’s unregistered offspring were apparently “unaware of the rules,” an agenda item in the Trump campaign. “They were, you know, unaware of the rules, and they didn’t, they didn’t register in time,” Trump admitted Monday morning on “Fox & Friends.” “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,” said Trump Sr.

In all fairness, Trump’s campaign still seemed like a theatrical comedy back then.

No word on the party affiliation of Trump's daughter with Marla Maples, Tiffany, who is a student at the University of Pennsylvania. 

The latest poll of New York voters found Trump leading John Kasich and Ted Cruz by 34 points.
