Coulter: Cruz Is Not a Natural Born Citizen

The birther movement is back and its latest target is Sen. Ted Cruz.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter on Wednesday and tore into Cruz for not being a natural born citizen.

Donald Trump has invoked the same argument, suggesting that Americans would be upset with Cruz and his questionable birthplace.

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump told The Washington Post on Tuesday.

Cruz responded to the accusations on Twitter with humor:

The Hill reports:

The U.S. Constitution states that to be eligible for the White House, one must be a “natural born citizen.” That’s long been interpreted to include anyone born to a U.S. citizen, even outside the country.

Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father. For years he held dual U.S.-Canada citizenship. The Texas Republican renounced his Canadian citizenship after he became a U.S. senator.

Cruz has laughed off the suggestion he’s not eligible for the White House, taking to Twitter on Tuesday to post a link from the television show “Happy Days” that shows the character Fonzie jumping his motorcycle over a shark.

Cruz and Trump are battling atop the polls in Iowa with less than a month to go before the caucuses there.
