Trump Says Cruz’s Canadian Birth Could Be A “Big Problem”

2016 GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump had strong words for fellow White House hopeful Ted Cruz this week, with Trump saying Cruz’s Canadian birth could be “a big problem” that may be “tied up in court for two years.”

According to USA Today:

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’” Trump told The Washington Post in reference to the Texas senator. “That’d be a big problem … It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”

While born in Canada, Cruz and allies have said he is eligible for the presidency because his mother’s status as an American citizen made him a citizen upon his birthHis father was born in Cuba. Since his election to the U.S. Senate from Texas in 2012, Cruz has released his birth certificate and renounced his Canadian citizenship.

Still, some critics of Cruz have suggested taking the issue to court.

“I’d hate to see something like that get in his way,” Trump told the Post. “But a lot of people are talking about it and I know that even some states are looking at it very strongly, the fact that he was born in Canada and he has had a double passport,” Trump said.”

Trump promised war if Cruz continued to improve in the polls-looks like he has delivered…

  1. Just read Wsj reporters in depth look at DT’s business deals. He would know about being wrapped up in courts and economic turmoil because that is his life. I am done with voting for Harvard grads and east coasters.

  2. Do we not understand Obama destroyed the requirement for citizenship except by the Mother being an American?

  3. no one really knows where obama was born, it could have been kenya it could have been hawaii it has never been verified. I am sure if Cruz’s birth status was an issue he would not have run, he is too smart for that. I am sure that he expected that to rear its head at some point. He is the best candidate out there, we need someone brilliant and articulate in the white house, not someone who reads scripts off a teleprompter.

  4. He has the same right to run for President as you do. HIS MOTHER’s citizenship gives him citizenship unless he has otherwise selected to be a Canadian citizen. Tell me a military family living abroad has to forfeit the rights of their children’s citizenship when they are born outside our borders. Do not use this argument Donald. You will be wrong and I do not like voting for WRONG!!!!

  5. It would be more reasonable to get him on his flip flop flip flop on immigration. I don’t trust that he will continue to say he is against immigration.

  6. US Constitution, Article II, Section 1
    No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President;

    NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, DEFINED
    The internationally recognized definition of Natural Born Citizen is found in a reference book, “Law of Nations” by Emerich de Vattel,
    1 frequently used by the Founders in their own legal writings as well as the crafting of the Constitution.
    2 This is the source of the term ‘natural born citizen’ that they understood and included in the US Constitution:

    “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens.” – Law of Nations – English version.

    Supreme Court Cases that Cite “Natural Born Citizen” as One Born on U.S. Soil to Citizen Parents –

    Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)

    Shanks v DuPont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)

    Dred Scott v Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)

    Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875)

    United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)

    Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)

    The supreme court has defined it succinctly five times and cited that definition over twenty five times. Trying to say the definition is uncertain is 240 years too late as that horse left the barn some thirty times since then.

    Cruz, Rubio and Santorum are not natural born citizens.

  7. Better a person from Canada than a Kenyan president with communist and Muslim Brotherhood connection.Hahahahahahah
