Donald Trump wields his Twitter account like a cannon. If anyone disagrees with him, the president directs his tweets against that person with the intent of reducing them to a smoldering rubble. Even the House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) cannot escape POTUS’ ire in this latest tweet.
Trump claimed that he could decree the 14th Amendment null and void with the stroke of his executive order pen. He plans on obliterating “anchor babies” and “chain migration.” Ryan disagreed.
‘Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!’
So-called “anchor babies” refers to women from other countries giving birth in the U.S. and the child automatically becoming a citizen. One example of chain migration occurred when Trump’s wife, First Lady Melania Trump, got her parents their citizenship. All three were all Slovenian citizens.
The New York Post reported that House Speaker Ryan said:
‘You cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order. Well, you obviously cannot do that. You know, as a conservative, I’m a believer in following the plain text of the Constitution, and I think in this case the 14th Amendment is pretty clear, and that would involve a very, very lengthy constitutional process.’
Trump was hot that one of his Republicans dared to disagree with him — authoritarian much?
