The news that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) will be Joe Biden’s running mate is barely a week old and already there is a controversy building around her.
The Biden campaign attacked President Trump for allegedly claiming that Kamala Harris was not a natural-born citizen and therefore ineligible to be vice president.
When asked about allegations that Harris was not eligible for the vice presidency during a press conference, Trump responded saying, “I have no idea if that’s right. I would have assumed the Democrats would have checked that out before she gets chosen to run as vice president.”
Trump continued saying, “You’re saying that she doesn’t qualify because she wasn’t born in this country? I don’t know about it, I just heard about it. I’ll take a look.”
This, of course, was not good enough for Democrats who attacked the president and claimed that he supported such claims with no evidence.
President Trump simply admitted he didn’t know and that he would “take a look” into it. These petty attacks on the President are wearing thin.
