NEW YORK, April 14 (UPI) — One of the advisers to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign said Thursday that he can’t vote for the Republican front-runner in the New York Primary on Tuesday because he’s a registered Democrat.
Special counsel and adviser Michael Cohen, though, doesn’t think his vote will be needed.
“Don’t worry about Mr. Trump. He’s around 50-plus percent in New York. This is his hometown,” he said.
“I’m not voting in the primary. I’m a registered Democrat,” he noted during a discussion on CNN Thursday morning.
Cohen, the executive vice president of The Trump Organization, is the latest Trump confidant reported to be ineligible to vote in the primary. Earlier this week, it was reported that his adult children, Eric and Ivanka, cannot vote either because they didn’t enroll as Republicans by the Oct. 9, 2015, deadline.
According to POLITICO, the billionaire real estate magnate has said his children feel guilty about that.
