The Republican candidate told Fox News on Monday his two adult children missed the deadline to register to vote in the upcoming Republican primary. Both Eric, 32, and Ivanka, 34, are registered to vote but are currently unaffiliated, according to public records. Because the Republican primary is closed to only registered GOP voters, the two will be unable to cast ballots for their father on April 19.
“They were unaware of the rules and they didn’t register in time,” Trump said Monday. “So Eric and Ivanka, I guess, won’t be voting.”
Trump told the anchors his kids feel “very guilty” about not being able to vote, but the candidate says he understands. Trump’s son Donald J. Trump Jr. is a registered Republican, records show.
