Donald Trump, a Constitutional Scholar? He wasn’t, but he’s listening to a constitutional scholar, Mark Levin, who is explaining – he was right to begin with!
Though the 14th Amendment, seemed in opposition, it’s wasn’t.
Ratified July 9, 1868, reads: “Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside” one must, again, read the intent of the founding fathers. As often happens, the legalese which followed, totally missed the intent and liberals have bastardized that!
If one wishes fully to understand the Constitution, one must also read what the Founders said and wrote regarding it. This is what is called original intent. By doing so one can glean not only what they wrote but the motive behind it — many letters the founders wrote to each other and of course the Federalist Papers.
Levin writes that Senator Jacob Howard (1805-1871) authored the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment. Even back then, “He [Howard] told us what he meant. He defined who would fall within the jurisdiction of the United States.”
He was referring to the slaves, brought here in bondage.
Leave it to those who want to destroy America? Not now, not ever! They’ll bastardize the Constitution every chance they get.
Thank you Mark Levin for setting us straight. Who knew The Donald would get it right? But he did, whether he knew it or not.
