Trump Defends Not Voting in Primaries for 21 Years: It's Useless & I Travel a Lot

When news broke this weekend that Donald Trump hasn't voted in a primary election in over two decades, many raised their eyebrows. How can someone who may soon stake their political dreams on a presidential primary call on voters to head to the polls when he won't even do it himself?
