President Donald Trump continues to show no regard for Americans and the Constitution as he voiced his alleged plan to do away with the right to citizenship for those children born to non-citizens in an interview with Axios on HBOAs CNN notes, it is still unclear if any President really has the power to deny citizenship to the U.S.-born with a simple executive order. Yet, birthright citizenship is, well, it’s a right granted indisputably through the 14th Amendment. And generally the way the Constitution works in these United States of America, it is not so simple to just wipe out the law of the land with the stroke of a pen by one dotard President.
But Trump is as Trump does, and apparently enjoys getting a kick out of his fear mongering. And, according to him, he’s already sought out counsel on the issue.
“We’re the only country in the world where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits,” Trump told Axios. “It’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous, and it has to end.”
When asked where in the process with this apparent executive order, Trump insisted “it’s in the process. It’ll happen.”
“It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don’t,” he claimed. “You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they’re saying I can do it just with an executive order.”
Or so he says. This is the man who was elected as the president of the United States, by the way. Someone that doesn’t even know how the constitution works.
Anyway, this interview is part of Axios on HBO, a four-part docuseries that will debut Sunday, Nov. 4.
