He Used To Be A Registered Democrat
Trump has been thinking about being in politics since as far back as 1987. Originally, he enrolled with the Board of Elections as a Republican. In 1999, he changed to the Independent Party because he was thinking of running for president as a Reform Party candidate in 2000. In August 2001, he switched to being a Democrat, because most of the politicians and friends he knew were Democrats. In 2009, he switched back to being a Republican.
