What is it about Republicans and the Constitution that makes them like oil and water. We have already had four candidates who have disqualified themselves for not understanding either the Judiciary clause or the 1st Amendment. Now The Donald has announced that the 14th Amendment can not withstand a court challenge. A constitutional amendment is unconstitutional and it "won't hold up in court."
In particular Trump has said that those children born of undocumented aliens in the United States are not citizens. Let's look at this logically, which, of course, Trump does not.
First of all the amendment is simple: ". . . all persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens of the United States. . ." What part of this sentence is not clear and unequivocal?
Second, if Trump is right, then a vast majority of our "citizenry", in one form or another, may not be citizens, and must voluntarily deport themselves to the their ancestors' country of origin, including Trump. Almost no one would be eligible to be President or Vice-President.
I will not repeat the President's oath of office. I will just say: Trump you are DISQUALIFIED AND FIRED. You are an idiot, an imbecile and a moron. If anyone should leave our country it is you, and let US take it back from bigots and xenophobes like you.
