Donald Trump attacked Ted Cruz for his birth in Canada in the last Republican debate on White House hope.
The Republican chairman said Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s birth in Canada raised questions about his eligibility for president: “There’s a big question mark over your head.”
The constitution provides for the president to be a “native citizen” of the United States.
Issues of national security, the economy and foreign policy also play a major role in the debate.
In the polls, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz lead the other five candidates, who were also on stage in North Charleston.
The debate came just two weeks before the campaign’s first real test, when voters in Iowa voted for their Republican and Democratic presidential election.
The event, hosted by the Fox Business Network, came days after Ted Cruz and Donald Trump shot each other, breaking months of goodwill between the two men.
The start of hostilities began a week ago, when the billionaire businessman began to raise questions about whether the birth of the Texas senator in Canada calls into question his admissibility.
However, in the discussion scene on January 14, Ted Cruz said there was a “zero chance” of a lawsuit being successful because the constitution’s definition of “citizens born in nature” included people born to an American parent.
Ted Cruz was born in Calgary to an American mother and a Cuban father.
Donald Trump has stood firm, noting that a Harvard scientist has raised doubts and Ted Cruz could face lawsuits from Democrats who want to challenge his qualifications.
They also argued about the importance of “New York values,” which Ted Cruz threw at the New York billionaire as a slander of his conservative powers.
Donald Trump said it was an insult to the “great people” who gathered after the 9/11 attacks.
After the debate, Donald Trump told reporters: “I guess the bromance is over.”
All candidates were targeted at leading Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, who has been repeatedly attacked for her time as secretary of state.
The main competitions in which each party chooses its presidential candidate begin in February, and the presidential election is in November.
