Real estate mogul Donald Trump has left the Republican party, switching his registration
to “unaffiliated,” according to ABC News.

Trump, who said he was
“disgusted,” with the Republicans’ work in Washington, according to a
source, could be contemplating a third-party run.

The real estate mogul has reportedly
considered online presidential site Americans Elect, which has worked to
get on the ballot in all 50 states, and would give Americans the ability to
nominate a candidate through the Internet.

“Couple Donald Trump’s name
recognition with his extraordinary wealth and Americans Elect becomes a
viable force in determining who the next president will be,” the
organization’s founder, Michael Cohen, told ABC.

Trump has twice before
switched his party affiliation, in 2001 and 2009.

According to New York State elections rules, however, Trump missed the date before which he need to file in order for his party change to take effect for the 2012 election, Politico reported.

The mogul has made no secret of his distaste for President Obama’s policies.  [ABC
