Trump's citizenship proposal would inevitably spark a long-shot legal battle over whether the president can alter the long-accepted understanding that the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born on USA soil, regardless of his parents' immigration status.
With seven days to go before high-stakes elections that he has sought to focus on fear-mongering over immigration, Trump made the comments to "Axios on HBO".
And while Trump sounded committed to the effort, at this point we don't know whether such an executive order even exists, let alone the fine details. "Basically they're saying, Mark, I could break into your home, kick down the door, drop a kid there, and he has the right to live there for the remainder of his life and there's not a darn thing you can do about it".
Trump claimed that his White House Counsel informed him that the highly controversial move, which would be sure to face legal challenges, could be authorized through a presidential order.
"With all of those benefits [of citizenship], it's ridiculous", he said. If the President tries to enact gun control legislation like Barack Obama tried to do through executive order that's not really going to fly.
The US will also send about 5,200 active-duty troops to "harden" the border, the Pentagon announced on Monday. A 2010 study by the right-wing Center for Immigration Studies showed that 30 countries offered birthright citizenship, including Canada, which like the USA grants citizenship to children born to people in the country without authorization. The loophole has, the pair contend, led to increased illegal immigration and also "birthright tourism", which sees visitors come from countries like China and Russian Federation for the express objective of giving birth in the United States.

Right-wing Bolsonaro confident in Brazil presidential race, allies finish strong
In Sao Paulo, the economic capital, Marcos Kotait, 40, a publicist, said he had "never seen such a polarized election ". Far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro has won a sweeping victory in Brazil's presidential election .
"This is simply an attempt for Donald Trump, who wants to do anything possible to bring back fears around immigration, to use that as a political tool in this last week before the election", Warner said.
And Mr Ryan was not the only Republican to shy away from changing the constitution. This is different, Napolitano said, for illegal immigrants who can be prosecuted and can sue in court because they are subject to the law as American citizens are. Others reported growing interest in services in Canada, which also grants birthright citizenship.
James Ho, a conservative Trump-appointed federal appeals court judge, wrote in 2006, before his appointment, that birthright citizenship "is protected no less for children of undocumented persons than for descendants of Mayflower passengers".
Old footage of former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) shows that some of the strong voices in the Democratic Party agree with President Donald Trump on his proposal to abolish birthright citizenship. Levin pointed out that if birthright citizenship is a bureaucratic creation, as the chief of the bureaucracy, President Trump has the right to correct years of extra-constitutional behavior by the executive branch. "If you are born in this country, you are an American".
The problem comes with the phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof".
