Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, Calif. That makes her an American citizen and eligible for the vice presidency (and even presidency) of the United States. It’s pure nonsense to suggest otherwise — as President Trump has done.

“I heard it today that [Harris] doesn’t meet the requirements,” he said Thursday.

Well, you heard wrong, Mr. President.

Harris was born to a Jamaican father and Indian mother who were in the United States as students. The 14th Amendment says: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States . . . are citizens of the United States.” And the Supreme Court confirmed that anyone born on US soil is a citizen.

People are worried about the virus, about the economy, about crime, about our future. Stop trafficking in bizarre, false and insulting conspiracy theories like birtherism and QAnon, Mr. President, and concentrate on what’s important.
