deja- vu on the billionaire! that's because he's questioning whether even cruz is eligible to be president! sot-trump on cnn "do you believe senator ted cruz is a natural born citizen?" dt: "i don't know, to be honest." (donald trump/(r) presidential candidate) he should ask for a declaratory judgment because that will clear it all up. the texas senator, if you didn't know, was born in sot-cruz " as a legal matter the question is straightforward and settled law that the child of a us citizen born abroad is a natural born citizen." right now, the two are neck-and- neck in the battle for iow. while republican presidential candidates have slowly been dropping out of the race, a new candidate is stepping up...for the libertarian party. he's former new mexico governor gary johnson. he was actually actually the party's 20-12 presidential nominee. johnson calls himself a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. he says america's debt is the biggest issue facing the country. pause for animation
