Donald Trump was met with cheers and boos as he arrived to cast a ballot for himself in New York City on Tuesday. Video of the moment showed the candidate waving to the crowd as he was met with a mixed reaction of cheers and boos.
His opponent, Hillary Clinton, also voted in New York earlier in the day. While voting, Trump was captured on camera appearing to look over at his wife's ballot as they voted side-by-side at P.S. 59 in Manhattan. Screenshots of the footage quickly flooded social media.

In addition to wife Melania, Trump was joined by daughter Ivanka Trump at the polling station for Trump Tower. When asked about his vote after it was cast, a smiling Trump replied that it was a "tough decision."
Trump's second son, Eric, was caught looking over his wife's ballot while they were voting Tuesday. That moment was also ridiculed on social media.

Ahead of the GOP nominee's arrival, topless protesters had been removed from the polling station. The women, in their mid-twenties, ripped off their shirts to reveal the message "Trump, grab your balls."
Before voting, Trump did a phone interview with Fox & Friends in which he said that if he lost the election, the entire process would be a huge waste of time and money for him. He has told supporters that same thing countless times on the campaign trail.
