Outside the Box: Trump’s birthright citizenship ploy is yet another of his attempts to divide and conquer

President Donald Trump is not known for his empathy, tact, or sense of decency. But even by his standards, the timing of his announcement that he plans to unilaterally undo constitutional protections for birthright citizenship was breathtaking.

On October 29, Trump told a reporter that he plans to issue an executive order ending birthright citizenship for children born in the United States to non-citizens. He said this just two days after an anti-Semitic man murdered 11 American Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue. Some of those who were murdered had not yet been buried when Trump made a statement that warms the hearts of white supremacists and white nationalists who see birthright citizenship as polluting their fevered dream of a “racially pure” country.
