was caught peeking on election day. In a photo that has gone viral, the Republican presidential nominee seemed to steal a few peeks at his wife Melania’s ballot when they cast their votes at a polling place in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday, November 8.

People can’t help poking fun at the moment which was caught on camera. One Twitter user wrote, “When you trust your wife to vote for you, but not really.”

And like father, like son, Donald Trump’s son Eric was also caught looking over at his wife’s ballot when they cast their votes at a different polling place.
But that’s not what made Eric land in hot water. He may have broken the law after he tweeted a picture of what appears to be his own ballot with a vote for his father. “It is an incredible honor to vote for my father! He will do such a great job for the U.S.A! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain,” he wrote along with the photo, before later deleting it.
