Barron Trump Is Safe From His Daddy’s Ego/Ignorance About 14th Amendment
The past couple of weeks here in the U.S. we have heard quite a bit from President Trump about him canceling the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution via him signing an Executive Order to do so. Some folks have wondered if Mr. Trump’s own youngest son Barron would fall victim to his Daddy’s own stupidity, the answer is simply, no. For those who don’t know, the Amendment states that if a child is born on U.S. soil then they are a citizen. Also stated is that as long as one of the child’s parents is a U.S. citizen then the child is also. Also stated is that even if the child was born outside of the U.S., as long as one of the parents have been a U.S. citizen for at least 5 years with at least 2 of those years being after the age of 12, the child is a U.S. citizen.
There are two reasons that the answer is no to that question. First, the Amendment as written keeps Barron’s U.S. citizenship safe. Barron Trump was born on March 20th of 2006, his Mom did not receive her citizenship until September of 2006 but with Donald being a lifelong citizen, Barron is a citizen of the U.S., period. Second, Donald Trump nor any other President has the authority to sign an Executive Order to cancel or to create a Constitutional Amendment. Think about it for a moment, think about if any President who comes into Office could eliminate any or all of the Amendments. Mr. Trump could then cancel the 13th Amendment which freed the Black folks from being slaves. Mr. Trump could then create an Amendment forcing all non-White folks to leave the U.S. at once and deport them to the country of their nationality. Before you KKK members get to grinning about that thought, what if President Obama had signed an Executive Order requiring all White folks to be deported to Europe. By those standards, I guess it would be most fitting if an Indian became President he, or she could turn back the clock to a time before Columbus sailed south-west from Spain. So, there is obviously no chance that the racists ego manic known as President Trump has the authority to do anything except to run his mouth and show the country and the world just how racists and ignorant he truly is.
