President Donald Trump on Saturday refused to acknowledge that Kamala Harris is eligible to serve on the Democratic ticket and claimed he “just doesn’t know” if there is truth to the bogus conspiracy theory questioning whether she truly counts as a natural born citizen.
“So, I have nothing to do with that,” Trump said when asked by a reporter if Harris is eligible to run for VP. “I read something about it and I will say that he [the author] is a brilliant lawyer … So I know nothing about it but it’s not something that bothers me,” he said, referring to the lawyer who revived birther claims about Harris in an op-ed earlier this week.
“To me, it doesn’t bother me at all. I don’t know about it. …. I read one quick article. The lawyer happens to be a brilliant lawyer. He wrote an article saying there could be a problem.”
