For the past few months, Donald Trump has been too busy presenting insane plans about funding his wall and confusing 9/11 with 7-Eleven to fork over the measly $5 necessary to register his private plane, and now the Trump jet is grounded, the New York Times reports.

Earlier in April, the Times reported the plane had been making the rounds with an expired registration since February 1. Because of failure to re-register—which only costs five bucks and lasts three years—the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) told the pilot of Trump's Cessna aircraft that he wouldn't be able to haul Donnie to more rallies until the jet is re-registered.

Laura J. Brown, a spokeswoman for the FAA, said in a statement that "the aircraft owner is currently working with the FAA's Aircraft Registry and will re-register the aircraft before further flight."

The maximum penalty for plebs—those who aren't Trump—for flying without registration is a civil fine of $27,500, a criminal fine up to $250,000, and a possible three-year stint in prison. Trump won't have to deal with any of this stuff, though. He'll just be back on the campaign trail as soon as his pilot plops down that fiver.
