Donald Trump's most recent weapon of choice against Ted Cruz is a little Bruce Springsteen. The real estate magnate has reportedly been turning on Springsteen's 1984 classic "Born In The USA" at the beginning of rallies amid increasing questions about his Canadian-born opponent Ted Cruz's eligibility to run for president.
Trump had been prodding Cruz about his eligibility long before he took up this new tactic, but other politicians have only recently began to weigh in to suggest that maybe the Texas senator's citizenship is worth investigating. Cruz maintains that he is eligible because while he was born in Canada, his mother was an American citizen, which thus affords him U.S. citizenship.
Trump, however, is not convinced. The Dallas Morning News reports that Trump recently went so far as to suggest that Cruz would be risky to nominate because Democrats would delay the election in court trying to decide whether Cruz could actually be considered a natural born citizen if he was not, technically, born in the USA.
