As Donald Trump’s presidential campaign continues to crescendo, his questions regarding the constitutional qualification of Senator Ted Cruz (shown) to be president are being taken seriously by scholars and the answers aren’t as clear as Cruz claims.

Cruz was born in Alberta, Canada to a Cuban father and an American mother.
