Because He's A Natural Born Citizen And Eligible
Phil Edmonds writes:
Maine Governor Paul LePage (arguably the most conservative Governor in the Nation) was just asked on the Howie Carr Radio Show if he'd be attending Donald Trump's visit to Maine tomorrow (3/3). LePage, originally a supporter of Chris Christie, was asked about his recent endorsement of Donald Trump, which came after Christie suspended his Presidential run. [Governor LePage's endorsement of Governor Christie was out of loyalty to Christie, who had stumped for LePage during his 2014 re-election campaign.]
When asked why he chose to throw his support behind Trump as opposed to one of the other remaining candidates in the race, LePage responded that his decision was rather simple. LePage, a U.S. citizen born in Maine, revealed that two of his adult daughters were born in Canada during the 70's when LePage was living and employed there. LePage told Carr that he and his wife were required to have their daughters naturalized. LePage continued, stating that he had sought an answer as to whether or not either of his Canadian-born daughters could ever become President.
LePage told Carr that his inquiry resulted in an unequivocal "No". Lepage's daughters, born in Canada to two U.S. citizen parents, are not natural-born citizens. As such, LePage was told that neither daughter is eligible to hold the office of President of the United States. [.]
