Okay Donald the jig is up. Time for you to go back to being an a-hole businessman and leave the politics alone to the real liars and thieves.

Records unearthed by NY1, Trump’s hometown news station, show he has not voted in primary elections for 21 years. City election board spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez confirmed NY1’s story at the weekend.
The news prompted a furious denial from Trump. “I voted in every general election … You’re going to pay a big price because you’re wrong … I have records that I voted and so does the board of elections … I signed in at every election,” he told NY1.
Trump has yet to confirm he will run for president but will be hoping for a more committed turnout from his own supporters if he is to move forward with his campaign. In order to secure the nomination he would need to get fellow Republicans to vote for him in a primary election – something that the state election board records appear to show he has failed to do consistently since 1989.
Back in 1989 Trump voted in the primary for mayor when Rudolph Giuliani beat business magnate Ronald Lauder, but according to the documents, Trump failed to show up at the primaries after that for over 20 years.
It wasn’t just local elections Trump missed. The tycoon also failed to cast his vote in several presidential primaries, including in 1988 and 1996.
The star of The Apprentice became a Democrat in 2001 but missed the 2001 and 2005 primaries for mayor. In 2002 records show he also appears to have skipped the general election.
