  1. If immigrants can succeed in the Sciences and commerce and the military etc etc why can’t an immigrant succeed as a President. And does the same rule apply to state governors. It seems a pity to restrict it.

    • Well the Constitution clearly states that a person is only eligible to be president if they are a natural born citizn, a resident for at least 14 years, and at least 35 years of age. The “natural born citizen” requirement is what Trump kept harping on regarding Obama and the “birther” issue. It was, of course, disproved and he eventually dropped it but only after years of complaint.
