However as I understand it, a child born to American parents in a foreign country is a citizen of both countries. So even if he were born in Kenya (which doesn't seem at all likely) then wouldn't be still a naturalized citizen.
Only if the child is born on American soil like a military base.
I just wikied birthers, where I read that an alternative theory of theirs is that he lost his citizenship when his family moved to Indonesia. I am not as sure how the rules on that work, but I suspect our citizenship rules on that would also be just as inclusive where he being but a minor would not have lost his American citizenship in that case either.
They would only lose their citizenship if they took on Indonesian citizenship. His being a minor would have absolutely nothing to do with it.
And people like Donald Trump represent an embarrassment to the USA. He symbolizes those parts of America that are arrogant, self-important, and frightened by the diverse nature of our country. I cannot possibly take people like Mr Trump seriously...as presidential material or as a leader. Like most liberals/progressives, I see Mr Trump's presidential running as a sideshow and meant for entertainment purposes only.
As someone who grew up in the South and was a brainwashed Christian for most of my life I can tell you plainly that ignorant white protest groups like the birthers cannot handle having a black President.
Obama is actually trying to help the poor like their god commands (That which you do unto the least of you, you also do unto me...the meek shall inherit the earth...etc). Instead of being happy with this they scream and yell when Obama tries to make it easier for them to get health care and claim it takes away their freedom.
When Obama attempts to help save the economy by letting the tax cuts for the rich expire they lose their minds because somehow if a rich person gets more money the magical jobs factory will open. They all collectively forget that their god said, "And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of god." Maybe they believe if they pray hard enough they'll win the lottery and become wealthy too.
Fundamentalists (which I'd bet a large number of birthers are) also believe that the President isn't elected, he's appointed by god. A guess god appointing a black man is like the dinosaurs, a test of their faith.
Birthers cannot deal with the fact that a black man is smarter than they are and that he is their leader.
GOP pivots on ‘birther’ questions, blames Obama for media attention. Read the rest at
How can any concessions, any arguments work with this group of bigoted morons?
