Is Ted Cruz more qualified to be President of the United States then President Obama?
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.
No, Ted Cruz is not more qualified to be president of the U.S., in any respect, than President Obama.
Obama was born in Hawaii and the Republican governor of Hawaii vouched for that fact when this issue was first raised. However, even if Obama had not been born in the U.S. (specifically Hawaii), he would have qualified to be president of the U.S. because his mother was a natural born citizen of the U.S., (Wichita, Kansas).
The same is true for Ted Cruz who was not actually born in the U.S. His mother was/is a natural born citizen of the U.S., (Wilmington, Delaware), and so her children automatically become citizens of the U.S. at birth no matter where they are physically born.
Children of United States citizens have always been accepted/considered natural born U.S. citizens no matter where they were born or why they were born outside the U.S., if that is the case.
So far as birth certificates are concerned, both Cruz and Obama are qualified to be president of the United States.
