Most people missed this, but Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy actually admitted a few days ago that he is an anchor baby. He said this on camera and then began making excuses for why he thinks he is still qualified to represent all Americans, but the fact remains: Vivek Ramaswamy is ineligible to be President of the United States.
Ramaswamy is usually sharp and polished, and it’s tough for interviewers to rattle his cage. It happens in this interview, however. You can tell he’s visibly just a little bit nervous that the reporter is bringing up a subject that’s obviously very uncomfortable for him.
He then ducks and dodges and starts blathering about the 14th Amendment, which was never intended to apply to the children of immigrants to America. The Constitution says that someone has to be a “natural born Citizen” to be president. That means they must be a second-generation citizen after being born to two parents who are both American citizens.
Vivek Ramaswamy’s dad was a legal immigrant when Vivek was born. He wasn’t an American citizen. Ramaswamy therefore has dual citizenship with India and America, making him ineligible for the presidency. To be president, a person cannot have divided loyalties between this country and their homeland where they still have citizenship. That’s the law.
Ramaswamy knows he’s full of it on this issue and his campaign has been a fraud from the start. He was never eligible to run and now he’s finally admitted it.
The relevant part of Ramaswamy’s admission starts at the 26:08 mark in this video:
