You Reap What You Sow

Gerard N. Magliocca

In 2016, Donald Trump spoke to The Washington Post about the claim that Senator Ted Cruz was ineligible to run for President because he was born in Canada. Here's what Trump said:

"Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: 'Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?' That'd be a big problem, it'd be a very precarious one for Republicans because he'd be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don't want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head."

The Fourth Circuit's opinion today in Cawthorn v. Circosta confirms that Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment is definitely hanging over the former President's head.
