LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Well, it appears that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is not only a self-proclaimed birther and an opponent of birth tourism (a.k.a. ‘anchor babies’); he is also against dual citizenship.
Case in point: Trump says that if elected president, he will issue an executive order that would revoke Superman’s dual citizenship.
While Superman has apparently renounced his U.S. citizenship in favor of being an honorary citizen of every country in the world, Kent Clark has chosen to retain his. That makes Superman/Clark a dual citizen.
“Superman can’t have the best of both worlds,” Trump said. “He is either a U.S. citizen or an undocumented alien.”
While many countries allow dual citizenship for its natural-born population, the United States does not formally recognize such status for U.S. citizens.
It was Hockey game night on Tuesday between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Nashville Predators. As usual, the game was preceded by the singing of the national anthems of the U.S. and Canada. Toronto, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles) –
When it came to the U.S. national anthem, something went wrong.The microphone failed and the singer could not be heard. What happened next shocked the Hockey world.
Toronto fans picked up, stepped in and continued singing the American national anthem to the precise beat and correct lyrics.
Upon learning of this heroic act by the Canadians, the U.S. State Department made an official announcement declaring automatic dual citizenship for all Canadians. “Many Americans can’t even sing our national anthem, let alone do it with the correct lyrics, but the Canadians impressed us with their affinity to our flag and our national anthem,” a State Department spokesperson said.
While the dual citizenship applies to all Canadians, it applies only to Americans who can sing O Canada in tune and with the correct lyrics.
