    Trump wants to override (by executive order) the clause in the 14th amendment stating that every person born in the U.S. is a citizen. I hope that there are enough people in the courts or congress to stop him. Otherwise he will be a dictator such as Hitler or Stalin.

    Are you talking about ending birth right citizenship ? A link to your post would be most helpful.

    Since the election, he has turned to other things, like China trade and the wall. I presume birthright citizenship was just another campaign trick.

    Um... don't you need a constitutional amendment to overturn that, which the president can't do with executive orders? Or am I missing something?

    He can't do it legally - but that's never stopped him before.
