I understand that a natural-born citizen of the United States is one of the eligibility requirements in our United States Constitution for the election of our President or Vice President. This requirement was intended to protect the nation from foreign influence. President Obama was born in Hawaii (to all you birthers out there, HAWAII IS A STATE OF THE USA.) Ann Dunham, born in Wichita, Kansas, Dunham spent her childhood in California. Kansas is a state in the USA. The BIRTHERS wanted to see Obama’s birth certificate. Birthers include Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
