As previously detailed in these pages, the 69-year-old Trump has shown little loyalty to the party whose nomination he now appears to be seeking.
New York City Board of Elections records detail Trump’s registration history, which includes stints as an enrolled Republican, Democrat, and Independent. He even spent several months without a party before returning to the Republican fold in April 2012.
Here is a history of Trump’s voter registration since 1987:
* JULY 1987: Trump registers for the first time from his Fifth Avenue penthouse. The real estate developer, 41 at the time, reports having previously been registered from his boyhood home in Queens (though his prior party affiliation is unclear). Trump enrolls as a REPUBLICAN.
