Donald Trump is raising questions over fellow GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio’s eligibility to be President.

The Republican front runner says that lawyers will sort the issue out…

According to Politico:

“On Saturday, Trump retweeted a tweet that suggested the Florida senator was not a citizen, George Stephanopoulos asked him about it on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning.

Rubio was born in Florida on May 28, 1971. His parents had come to the United States from Cuba in 1950s. Trump retweeted a tweet on Saturday that suggested both Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz were ineligible to be president.

There is a lawsuit pending in Broward County, Florida, challenging the eligibility of both Cruz and Rubio — Cruz because of where he was born, Rubio because of where his parents were born. An initial hearing of Michael Voeltz’s suit is to be held March 4 in front of Judge John Bowman.

“I think the lawyers have to determine that that — and not— it was a retweet, not so much with Marco. I’m not really that familiar with Marco’s circumstances,” Trump said Sunday morning.”

The article notes Trump says he likes to sue his Twitter to start conversations with the American people:

“You’re really not sure that Marco Rubio is eligible to run for president? You’re really not sure?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“I don’t know. I really — I’ve never looked at it, George. I honestly have never looked at it. As somebody said, he’s not. And I retweeted it. I have 14 million people between Twitter and Facebook and Instagram and I retweet things, and we start dialogue and it’s very interesting,” Trump said.”

  1. Trump say Cruz is a dirty guy??? Trump doesn’t think ANYBODY IS QUALIFIED except him! IF he doesn’t get the nomination he WILL run 3rd party!! IT ‘iS HIS WAY OR THE HIGH WAY!!! Trump has long history of screwing everybody for his own advantage!! But do NOT check this history for yourself!!! IF you did you would be an INFORMED voter and we can NOT have that!

  2. I don’t believe either Cruz or Rubio are eligible if you want to go by the exact definition in the Constitution of a natural born citizen.

  3. Cruz was born in Canada to an American citizen, therefore Cruz is an American. Rubio was born in Miami, Fla. soooo. Trump should talk about issues we have in the U.S. and quit whinin and calling everyone liars. I don’t believe he’s been completely truthful himself.

    • Wrong !! Must be born of a US born natural father ! It’s in the Constitution plain and simple! US mother does not make him qualified! Article 2, Section 1 , class 5 ! Sorry

        • Right! How is he president? Because the NWO selected him, the media covered up for him and demonized anyone speaking the truth as a racist. What country do you live in?

    • Where are the citizenship papers filed by his mother when he was born? None. Cruz applied for citizenship as an adult. He decided to stay a citizen of Canada rather than renounce it. He retained a DUAL CITIZENSHIP until deciding to run for president. NOT natural born.

  4. Article 2, Section 1, Class 5 ! You must be born of a natural US born father period ! Place of birth is a smokescreen used by Obama !

    • I couldn’t find a reference to a father or any parent. It says ONLY that you must be a natural born citizen, 35 years old, and a resident of the U.S. for at least 14 years. And that’s all, no more.

  5. I don’t think, just because someone jumped over the fence from another country and had a baby here that they should be our President. Anchor babies were here only because of illegal parents. I would prefer a true American to lead our Americans.
