All Donald needed to do was give a cursory glance at the requirements for U.S. citizenship when President Obama was born. There is no debate, just misdirection and veiled racism. Instead of looking to cite law and facts, Trump's opted for ignorance in the form of newspaper editorials indicting the research skills of columnists. To that end, here is your definitive proof Donald Trump. When you've concluded reading it... please go somewhere and sit down.The 1940 Statute regarding citizenship is clear. In the case of Barack Obama where:
At the time of the child's birth, one of the parents was a U.S. citizen and the other was an alien. On or after January 13, 1941, in the case of a child born to a U.S. citizen parent and an alien parent, the U.S. citizen parent had to have resided in the United States or its outlying possessions for 10 years, at least 5 of which were after attaining the age of 16 years in order to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.
And she (Momma) did... any other questions?
It does not matter if Trump doubts the authenticity of the birth records of the state of Hawaii. It does not matter if he doubts whether President Obama was physically born in Hawaii, Barack Obama is a citizen by law no matter how he tries to slice it. Now let's move on once and for all.
Good night and good luck. Have a seat Donald.
