Axios reports that Trump is now going to try to do away with Birthright citizenship.

Wonder what he is going to do about all those Russian, Scandinavian, Asian women coming here to have their anchor babies (that you don't hear about)?

3. Trump: It's not right that a baby can be born here and then have all these rights for 85 years.

7. Here's the Axios article with a video clip of the interview

Trump told "Axios on HBO" that he has run the idea of ending birthright citizenship by his counsel and plans to proceed with the highly controversial move, which certainly will face legal challenges.

"It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don't," Trump said, declaring he can do it by executive order.
When told that's very much in dispute, Trump replied: "You can definitely do it with an Act of Congress. But now they're saying I can do it just with an executive order."
"We're the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States ... with all of those benefits," Trump continued. "It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end."
"It's in the process. It'll happen ... with an executive order."

9. He's an anchor baby himself

But he’s the right color, if orange counts.

10. This proves that he KNOWS his base is deplorable! He's giving them red meat

just before the midterms. The only people who would hear this plan and think “Great!” are deplorable.
