(FOX NEWS) Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz says he will renounce any Canadian citizenship he may have after a newspaper reported he was likely a dual citizen because he was born in Calgary, Alberta to an American mother.
In a statement late Monday, Cruz says he always assumed since he never made an attempt to claim Canadian citizenship, he was only an American citizen. However, he acknowledges it’s possible he also has Canadian citizenship, as reported by The Dallas Morning News.
“Assuming that is true, then sure, I will renounce any Canadian citizenship,” Cruz said. “Nothing against Canada, but I’m an American by birth and as a U.S. senator; I believe I should be only an American.”
