President Donald Trump claims he has “overheard” Democratic candidate Kamala Harris “does not meet the requirements” to serve as US vice-president, enlarging a fringe legal theory pundits decry as racist.
She was born in the US to a Jamaican father and Indian mother in Oakland, California, on 20 October 1964.
As such, she is qualified to function as president or vice-president.
For a long time, Mr Trump presented a untrue “birther” theory that ex-President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
Ms Harris, a California senator, was named on Tuesday as the first woman of color to work as running partner on a principal-party US presidential ticket.
