South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who recently ended his own presidential bid,
couldn’t help but laugh when asked if Canadian-born candidate Ted Cruz is eligible to be president.
“I just want to say, I think Ted is qualified to run for president of the United States,” Graham said on the Kilmeade and Friends radio show on Friday. “I think he is a natural-born citizen. I am sure.”
“Whether I’m right or not I believe that to be so. I don’t want Ted to be the nominee. I don’t dislike Ted, but I don’t think that issue disqualifies him,” he added.
Asked if he was surprised the issue was being discussed, the South Carolina senator began to laugh.
“No, not by Trump, no not at all,” he chuckled as he said. “I thought it was pretty clever on his part actually.”
