Haley is not Eligible to be President

With all the partisan talk about kicking Pres. Trump off the ballot, no one is talking about excluding Haley:
In Nikki Haley’s case, it is well documented that neither one of her parents were citizens, natural born or naturalized, at the time of her birth in 1972. It has been previously reported that a South Carolina-based newspaper included a quote from the Office of Nikki Haley, stating that “her parents were not U.S. citizens at the time of her birth in 1972 and did not become citizens until 1978 and 2003.” Thus, although the parents may have been lawful residents at the time of her birth on South Carolina soil, which may or may not confer her with the privileges of citizenship, it is important to note that she does not qualify for the Constitution’s higher requirement of natural-born citizenship.
This seems clear-cut to me. She does not meet the minimum constitutional qualifications to be President or VP.

Trump-hater Steven Calabresi writes that the 14th Amendment does not apply to Trump, and that Haley's Civil War comments were not so stupid. Lincoln adamantly denied that the Civil War was about slavery, until it became politically convenient a couple of years later.

The 14.3A would apply to Trump if he were an officer of the US, he engaged in an Insurrection, he were a candidate for an office of the US, and Congress passed implementing legislation. However all of these are false. The term "officer" means officials appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

The US Supreme Court has taken the case of removing Trump from the ballot, and it is sure to rule in Trump's favor.

Here is the first Biden-Harris ad of 2024. The main point is that they want to preserve democracy by jailing political enemies. And replacing Whites. The YouTube comments are overwhelmingly against Biden. Here is the full Biden speech.
