Why only citizens can become presidents?

Okay, so I heard you cannot be president even if you wanted only if you were born in american and have a birth certificate for evidence your an american.is that true? Cause I wasn’t american citizen till 5 years old.. I am saying I wanna be president (yes I do lol) anyways is this true?

Answer #1

Yes, that is true


Only native-born U.S. citizens (or those born abroad, but only to parents who were both citizens of the U.S.) may be president of the United States, though from time to time that requirement is called into question, most recently after Arnold Schwarzenegger, born in Austria, was elected governor of California, in 2003. The Constitution originally provided a small loophole to this provision: One needn’t have been born in the United States but had to be a citizen at the time the Constitution was adopted. But, since that occurred in 1789, that ship has sailed.

Answer #2

they forgot 1 thing on that… you must kiss the prime ministers bum, or would it be vise versa with the prime minister kissing his :S

anyway you got my vote lol
