WASHINGTON, D.C.(The Adobo Chronicles) – It’s Déjà vu! The man who challenged Barack Obama’s citizenship is now questioning whether Republican Senator Ted Cruz is qualified to run for president.

The junior senator from Texas announced today that he was seeking the Republican nomination for president in the 2016 elections — the first major candidate to do so.

Business mogul Donald Trump, who makes no secret about his intention to run for president in 2016, said today that Cruz, who was born in Canada, is not eligible to run for president because he wasn’t born in the United States.

“I don’t even need to see his birth certificate,” Trump said, ” since he has admitted that he was born in Canada.”

Responding to Trump’s pronouncement, Cruz countered by saying, “Mr. Trump must not know his geography.  Yes, I was born in Canada which is in North America.  Ergo, I am American and very well qualified to run for U.S. president.”

“On the other hand,” the Texas senator said, “I haven’t seen Mr. Trump’s birth certificate. He doesn’t look American to me. I think he’s been dyeing his weird hair blonde, and wearing colored contacts to look American.”

“Don’t show me your money; show me your birth certificate,” Cruz challenged Trump.
