Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump will not be able to vote for their father in New York’s Republican primary on April 19, it has emerged.
Donald Trump is expected to easily win the New York primary on April 19, but he won’t do so with the help of many of his children. While Eric and Ivanka Trump have appeared on the campaign trail, they didn’t register as Republicans in time to vote, Yahoo! News reported earlier this month.
At the end of Trump’s Monday interview with Fox & Friends, he admitted with a sigh that the rules are not unfair, like they are in Colorado and with the delegates system:
They had to long-time register and they were unaware of the rules and they didn’t register in time. 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 joked with the hosts he’ll be cutting off their allowances, and while “a lot of people would like that choice,” of Ivanka becoming vice-president, “it won’t happen.”
While Donald Jr. is a Republican and will be voting for his father, Ivanka and Eric are “not Republicans” and have given to both political parties, Yahoo! noted. Tiffany Trump, 22, has not been as politically active, and Trump’s youngest son, Barron, is only 10 years old.
