    If they are born in the United States by two parents that are here illegally then they ALL need to go. You can’t benefit from someone else’s crime..

    Fact: Most countries in the world don't grant birthright citizenship. As much as I don't like our president, what he's saying here is universally true. Although we haven't been the only country who grant birthright citizenship, we've been one of the very few alongside Canada.

    Trump doesn't have the skill set to be president. It's actually disturbing that there are people who support this man. We need to vote for our future and the future of this country. These are desperate times people.

    This change to the Constitution has to be made through Congress, not Trump. Trump came with the thought which I agree with, 100%.. But Trump did this change?, no, Congress did.

    Funny quote: "It was told to me…". Trump can't read (not really news) and he's either too stupid and/or too lazy to do so.The president cannot alter the U.S. Constitution by decree because the founders made that document a contract with the citizens of this country and then they all SIGNED IT. To make matters worse it was ratified by all 13 states because Notaries hadn’t been invented yet. PS They didn't put an expiration date on it either.

    I sincerely hope the Democrats win the mid-terms.. if little mushroom Donnie gets any more power, he’s going to do some highly irreversible damage to this planet.

    It is now bordering on an almost moral imperative that.someone take the act and put an end to this presidency – as quickly and as irreversibly as possible.

    The man really does present as a cancer to humanity. – the longer he stays in power the exponential his capacity to damage grows.

    With zero redeemable qualities, I’m sure he won’t be missed. (At least I hope he’s not missed.

    Ivanka, Don Jr, Eric and Barron have to go. Their mothers not citizens when born. Isn't it ironic the one daughter who he really doesn't acknowledge is the only kid of his that is a citizen. Was his mother a citizen, so he will have to resign and sorry Scotland you get him back

    Lol there is no change to the constitution as illegal immigrants do no come under Americans jurisdiction.
    So newborn or not you can be deported first and do not have to allow any birthright claims! It's about U.S. Government Jurisdiction boundaries not U.S. Geographical Country boundaries. Here in breach of the law doesn't allow you any claims………

    You know what? I've only agreed with this man 2x and this is one of them. I've worked in MX.and on the border. I have met people who cross the border to give birth to a child to obtain dual citizenship ship.
    Go to the border and hang out. You'll see pregnant women being detain close to giving birth.

    The majority of people commenting on this video need to look up what "birthright citizenship" means before making stupid comments either for or against it. Better yet, read the actual text of the 14th Amendment.

    He also said in the interview that the US is the only country with birthright citizenship. This is either a lie or he doesn't know anything. Both are pretty bad for someone who is president. I wish he could get through a speech or interview without lying.

    He's doing this because of the growing voting latino population. He wants to eliminate the birthright to keep people like him in power. I would not be one bit surprised if he somehow figured out how to get away with it, he'd try to backdate it.

    Please before you all listen to this fake news garbage trying to persuade you of something that isn’t true here are the real facts:

    This amendment was put in place for the newly freed slaves so that they could be recognized as US citizens. This was not meant for other countries to scam our system.

    The 14th Amendment was never intended to have illegal aliens abuse it. And no surprise that Morning Joe turns everything about the president negative. I'm sure these stupid hateful anchors love wallowing in their deranged hatred.

    We are seeking to eliminate tiny45*! Keep voting blue—even if the GOP cheats, lies, steals, steals your money, inflates gas prices-food-medicine-healthcare (all of which have already happened)—if good upstanding citizens fail in the USA, so will the country. The lies from the GOP candidates is my area are despicable beyond belief. The GOP and its corporate money are pure evil! The devil, GOP, must be exterminated!

    You people are liars. 1500 illegal people are entering into our country everyday. Here's a question for all of you left wing crazies. How many of you are sponsoring immigrants to come into our country? Have you given bedrooms out of your homes for immigrants to stay in? Are you guaranteeing jobs and healthcare for them?  Are any of you willing to give up YOUR jobs for an immigrant? The answer is of course NO. But you want others to lose their jobs. Your OK with illegals going to poor people's schools, you send your children to private schools. You are above all of this in YOUR privileged world.

    Reading the comments below, it is obvious that liberals are too stupid to understand this issue, or simply don't want to. The 14th amendment; "the amendment addresses citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws and was proposed in response to issues related to former slaves following the American Civil War. " Get it, you liberal dummies? It was not made so that people from Mexico, or Honduras, or China, or whatever foreign country could cross our borders while pregnant, and have a baby, and then be like a football player spiking a football in the end zone.

    Whatever the Democrats touch they destroy like immigration, national security, foreign policy, health care, economy, trade, law enforcement, the military and yes even sports issues. Democrats are only good at creating crimes, corruptions, entitlement programs, choking regulations, raising taxes, shipping jobs overseas, destroying history. Trump 2020!!!

    Trump's argument would have allowed Obama to Ban All Guns, Ban Free Speech,  or change any other part of the Untied States Constitution !!!  …. This President cannot do this (unless backed up by his Five Alt Right Wing Supreme Court Majority ). He is an insane autocrat that has to be stopped !!! VOTE !!!  VOTE !!!! VOTE !!!!!

    You can not change the constitution with an executive order. We have people that study constitutional law all their lives and Trump thinks he can say anything and it makes it true. He is not a King.

    born AND naturalized AND subject to the laws and jurisdictions thereof.

    Children born by illegal immigrants in the US are children of parents not subject to the laws and jurisdictions of the US as they are not legal/naturalized citizens of the US. "Birthright Citizenship" is actually a bastardization of that written amendment that has been interpreted extremely poorly to grant citizenship to children born of criminals.

    It would be nothing at all to properly interpret this amendment to apply to children born of actual citizens of the US instead of being recklessly interpreted as to offer "citizenship" to children born of illegals who haven't even bothered to become citizens themselves.

    Birthright citizenship has been adopted by every nation that at some point in their history was a colony of an imperial power. That includes the US and all of the Spanish and Portuguese colonies that obtained their independence in the Americas. It represents the very essence of a soverign act that set these nations apart from their "imperial" occupants. Trump continues to believe that he has been annointed emperor of the US, completely ignoring the fact that he is merely a public employee occupying the executive branch of government for a temporary period of time. He is for all practical purposes, merely a historical accident in the timeline of his country. Hopefully he, along with many who came before him, will become simply a footnote in the history of mankind, if mankind can survive him.

    Wow, you Donald supporters really are hypocrites of the highest order and stupid if you think the US Constitution can be changed by an executive order! It would be funny if it wasn't so sad and dangerous to mess with the Citizenship of Americans. The 14th amendment is clear. You just have to be born a person and be subject to the jurisdiction thereof (meaning our laws apply to you). Thats it and thats all!

    Despite Trump saying otherwise, the US is not the only country that shares this problem. I find it incredible that every day trump will rattle off so many lies and you believe him. Not only that, he has divided America so much, I find it difficult to recognize it. I would not want to visit your country even for a vacation right now. Republican supporters must be incredibly gullible or nieve people.

    Solly vs. The Mole-Men

    Trump does not need to go through congress because its a matter of the Interpretation of the constitution which falls to the Supreme Court and not a matter of repealing the actual amendment. This is the argument that the President will make: The 14th amendment had to do with slaves after the emancipation, and nothing to do with people who are breaking the law by comming to the US illegally, the key phrase in the 14th amendment is "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" if you are already breaking FEDERAL law (another key thing to remember) by being here, and not a citizen, the theory goes it would therefore render any birthright citizenship null and void. But this is the way it will go down, he will sign the executive order, it will be contested, it will go to the supreme court which since appointment of kavanaugh will give repubs a 5-4 decision in the courts, executive order, like the travel ban, will be upheld. Its all strategy, and would not be possible were it not for justice gorsuch and kavanaugh.
