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.

Trump's point and I think it is a valid one is that do you want your president embroiled in a question of his eligibility in a court for the first 2 years of his presidency? (As opposed to Obama's eligibility which was confined to the media and never entered the court system.) Someone has already filed a lawsuit in the hope of resolving this before like, you know, election day? Trump has the resources to make good on his threat and drag it out forever.

It doesn't appear to even be a hindrance. Drinking Beverage

Practically a requirement.

On the right it seems to be a positive quality. Facepalm
