Trump may sue Cruz over birther issue.
Worried that he not might not win Trump is toying with the idea of suing Cruz over his eligibility to run. Although he was born in Canada Cruz says he can run because his mother was a US citizen. http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-ele...ty-n517791

I was born in Canada - can I run because my father was a U.S. citizen? Consider

How can Ted Cruz be an Evangelical Christian when he lies so much and is so dishonest?

The problem is that "natural born" has never been defined. Cruz says it doesn't matter where you're born as long as one of your parents is a US citizen at the time of your birth. So under his definition then you possibly could. Btw from what I've read Cruz's mom eventually became a Canadian citizen and there are questions as to exactly when - before or after Cruz was born. Cruz also until recently had dual citizenship and a Canadian passport so he has some real issues. However it's politically incorrect to talk about it. I know people want candidates to win on the issues but the law is the law. If Cruz isn't eligible then so be it.

Someone said that Trump's mother was not an American so as such he shouldn't be eligible to run!

Again it depends on how you define "natural born" - something which the courts have not done. Under the most strict definition you and both your parents would have to be born in the US and be citizens since birth so that's means even Trump couldn't run since one of his parents wasn't born in the US. But most legal professors from what I've read favor the interpretation that as long you were born in the US or it's territories you are a "natural born" citizen although there is disagreement on ambassadors and diplomats. Since Trump was born in the US he would be a citizen under this definition while Cruz would not. Since natural born has not been defined I suppose Trump himself could be sued although the case against Cruz is stronger.

Cruz is a scumbag si he shouldn't be eligible to run. Sadly, being a scumbag is not a disqualifier.
