Uh oh! Donald Trump has made one of his most outlandish claims ever in his quest to become the Republican presidential nominee. He’s threatening to sue Ted Cruz over not being a natural-born U.S. citizen, which would make this race completely bananas!
Trumptertantrum alert! Donald Trump, 69, has given the ultimate double down on opponent Ted Cruz, 45, and this one is a doozy! The Donald is still beating the same old drum about Ted being born in Canada and how that disqualifies him from being eligible to become President, and now he’s threatening the Texas Senator with a lawsuit over his citizenship if he doesn’t stop doing negative campaigning against him. Oh Donald, grow a thicker skin because these Trumpertantrums will only give Ted more fuel against you! Read on to see his crazy tweet.
@TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have standing to sue him for not being a natural-born citizen,” Donald wrote in a Feb. 12 tweet and we’re scratching out heads as to why he’s making such a useless threat. While Ted might have been born in Calgary to a Cuban-born Canadian father, his mother is a U.S. citizen which makes him an American citizen as well.
This is a total non-issue but one that Donald always trots out when he’s feeling threatened in the polls. Not only that, he’s giving Ted ammo for the Feb. 13 debate to call out Donald’s outlandish claims, and the Donald should know better by now. The last time he brought this birther topic up during a debate he got booed! Get Donald’s book “Crippled America: How To Make America Great Again” right here.
If @TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have standing to sue him for not being a natural born citizen.

This issue is nothing new between the two, as when it seems like Ted is making gains on Donald in the polls, the subject seems to rear its ugly head. During a Jan. 14 debate in Iowa, Ted mentioned how Donald’s own lawyers determined that Ted was legally was able to run for president. “Since [then], the Constitution hasn’t changed,” Ted said, “but the poll numbers have” ZING! There’s your real reason why Donald may be bringing up this tired old issue, because he’s going to have a tougher fight with Ted in the upcoming South Carolina and Nevada primaries than he did in his recent New Hampshire victory.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Donald is making such an outlandish claim because he’s feeling threatened by Ted?
