Alexander Hamilton himself was not a natural born citizen, and thus ineligible to be President. Is it "racist" to mention it?
You realize he fell under the “citizen at the time of adoption of the constitution clause”, right? He was eligible because of that codicile.
Irrelevant, he was a Citizen at the time the Constitution was signed.
Racism is not the issue here. However, knowing the foundation on which our government’s legitimacy is based is vital. Please read Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible to the Office of President.....” Bear in mind that all of the Founders and most of the Framers were British subjects until after the Revolution.
We need to be fully informed and clear about the ground we stand on.
U.S.Constitution; Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Hamilton was eligible.
@HAMILTON, Alexander, (1757 - 1804)
...immigrated to the United States in 1772...
Do you realize how ignorant you sound?! He didn't need to be a natural born citizen as he was a citizen when the Constitution was adopted and was 'grandfathered in'.
It's not rocket science.
