Conservative analyst and author of “Adios America” Ann Coulter weighed in on the recent news about GOP frontrunner Donald Trump calling into question Sen. Ted Cruz’s birthright status, since Cruz was born in Canada.
Coulter posted on Twitter on Wednesday:
NYT: Cruz was born outside the U.S. to 1 American parent: “Under the Constitution this makes him a ‘natural born citizen.’” Absolutely false

The Washington Post published a story Tuesday evening where Trump said Cruz’s place of birth would be a “very precarious” issue if Cruz is the Republican nominee.
The Post noted that several legal scholars have argued Cruz would qualify as a natural born citizen because his mother was a U.S. citizen.
