Trump Forces Cruz to Defend His Eligibility for the Presidency

Ted Cruz is firing back at Donald Trump for claiming that the Texas senator may not be eligible to be president because he was born in Canada, Breitbart News reported.

At issue is the constitutional requirement that the nation’s commander in chief is a “natural born citizen.” According to Lawrence Tribe, a professor at Harvard University’s law school, the courts have not defined the term. He said it is uncertain whether the U.S. citizenship of Cruz’s mother is sufficient to qualify the candidate for a White House bid.

Trump told The Washington Post that the matter is a “very precarious issue.” In a recent speech, the GOP front-runner cited Tribe’s comments. Cruz responded: “I will say it is more than a little strange to see Donald relying on as authoritative a liberal, left-wing, judicial activist Harvard law professor who is a huge Hillary supporter. It starts to make you think, ‘Gosh, why are some of Hillary’s strongest supporters backing Donald Trump?’”

Cruz continued: “You know, the last couple of elections, you’ll recall the Democrats got the nominee they wanted to run against in the general election. It seems the Hillary folks are very eager to support Donald Trump and the attacks that are being tossed my direction.”
