Did Barack Obama enter Indonesia as his citizenship on his college application?
The California state senate records indicate that a foreign
student named Soetoro from Indonesia attended school in
Yes, Obama attended school here as a foreign student. He held Indonesian citizenship at the time.
Barack Obama is a citizen of only the United States, and has never held another citizenship instead or in addition to United States citizenship. He never held Indonesian citizneship and thus never gave it up. Just as Americans living in France or Germany continue to be American citizens while they live there, Mr. Obama remained an American citizen while he lived in Indonesia.
Barack Obama's mother was a college student in Hawaii when Barack was born; she later became an anthropologist (specializing in women's roles in Indonesia) and a professor. His biological father, who was not in his life much after young Barack was two, ultimately returned to Kenya, where he worked as an economist for the government.
Mr. Obama is a citizen of only the United States, and has never held another citizenship instead or in addition to United States citizenship. Just as American children who live with their parents for several in France or Germany remain American while they are living abroad, so too did Barack Obama remain an American citizen while living in Indonesia.
Barack Obama lived in Indonesia as a result of his mother's re-marriage. After Barack's father left him and his mom when he was still a baby, his mom eventually remarried. Her new husband, Lolo Soetoro, was from Indonesia, and the family moved there for about four years. But Barack returned to Hawaii to complete his education.
Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and lived there till he was five, when his mom remarried and the family moved to Indonesia (where his step-dad was from). In Indonesia, young Barack attended a Catholic elementary school and then a public school. But his mom felt the schools were not what she had hoped for, so Barack returned to Hawaii to live with his grandparents and attend school in Honolulu. From grade five to grade…
No, he is a natural born US citizen and has never held other citizenship. His father, Barack Obama, Sr., was Kenyan and met his mother when they were both in college and he was a foreign exchange student. They had a brief marriage before Barack Obama, Sr. left and moved back to Africa. Barack Obama, II, the current US President would be considered an African-American, with an American mother of European heritage and an African…
While many people may disapprove or disagree with Barack Obama's policies, he is currently the leader of the free world as elected by the People of the United States though the Electoral College. His background and citizenship are approved for the position of the President by the government of the United States, and he is our president. Yes he is appropriate for the presidency.
Probably not, any more than the fact that my father was from Greece makes me a Greek. Laws of citizenship do vary, however, from country to country. Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, which is a state of the United States of America. Therefore, by American law, he is a "natural born citizen" of the United States. A few people have argued that Obama wasn't born in Hawaii, or surrendered his citizenship when his stepfather…
If President Obama's father was deceased at the time of the 2008 campaign would it still disqualify Barack Obama even if his father had been of African-Kenya citizenship?
No. The fact is that anyone who is born on American soil is by definition an American citizen. Since Barack Obama was born in Hawai'i, which was a State of the United States at the time of his birth, Barack Obama holds American citizenship and is a native-born American by any legal definition. President Obama has never had dual citizenship, but dual citizenship is not an automatic disqualification under the Constitution for the presidency so…
President Barack Obama was born on Friday, August 4, 1961, at 7:24 pm in Kapiolani Maternity and Gynecological Hospital, in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, USA. That makes him a "Natural Born Citizen" of the USA. He has not lived in Kenya and has no other citizenship besides his American citizenship. President Barack Obama's biological father, Barack Obama, Sr. was born in and a citizen of Kenya.
Absolutely not. This is another internet myth, with no evidence to support it. The president's education occurred in two places-- Hawaii and Indonesia. When his mother remarried (Barack was five at the time), the family moved to Indonesia, where he first attended a Catholic school and then a public school. The majority in Indonesia are Muslim, but he never attended a "madrassa"-- a strict religious school where Islam is the dominant system and no other…
