HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — Donald Trump’s status as the Republican presidential front-runner can’t keep him from jury duty.

Trump is taking a break from the campaign trail Monday to appear for jury duty in New York City. He says he’s “looking forward to appearing.”

Trump confirmed the summons on Friday before a campaign rally in New Hampshire, home of the first presidential primary.

The New York Daily News reported in June that Trump had ignored five jury summonses since 2006. A judge fined the billionaire $250.
