Trump revives suggestion he'd end birthright citizenship
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says he's looking "very seriously" at ending the right to citizenship for babies born to non-U.S. citizens on American soil.
Trump spoke to reporters Wednesday as he departed the White House for a speech in Louisville.
He says birthright citizenship is "frankly ridiculous."
This isn't the first time Trump has claimed he'd do away with it - he also said something similar in October.
But the citizenship proposal would inevitably spark a longshot legal battle over whether the president can alter the long accepted understanding that the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born on U.S. soil , regardless of a parent's immigration status.
