Governor Gilmore wants to debate Donald Trump one-on-one on the subject of birthright citizenship in the 14th amendment. Â He believes Trump’s idea to end birthright citizenship is wrong. We have previously written on the subject here.
“Donald Trump is wrong on this issue and on his views of the 14th Amendment,” Gilmore said in a statement. “I challenge Donald Trump to debate â€˜mano a manoâ€™ on this issue. His comments are irresponsible, offensive to Latinos and a threat to the U.S. Constitution.”
“Any time, any place,” Gilmore said. “I will debate Donald Trump on his wrong-headed view of the 14th Amendment and his determination to deny children born in America birthright citizenship.”
Gilmore supports strengthening security at our borders, and deporting criminal illegal aliens but
“I draw the line at taking away anyone’s citizenship and undermining the Constitution.
“Donald Trump is pandering to the worst elements of our society in this issue and his strategy is not good for America or Americans,” Gilmore said. “I challenge him to debate me on this issue so I can show the nation his statements and views are not correct.”
The next Presidential Debate will be on CNN on September 16 but Governor Gilmore was not invited to participate because he has not yet hit the necessary 1% national support that is a required for participation in the debates.
