Trump’s comments were delivered with their usual bombast and inaccuracy.
“We’re looking at that very seriously, birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land, you walk over the border, have a baby—congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen,” the president said on the South Lawn of the White House before boarding Marine One to head to Kentucky. “It’s frankly ridiculous.”

Most notably, on October 30, 2018 the president told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that the administration was considering overturning the right through executive order, a comment that drew furious backlash from across the political spectrum.
