Obama Will Claim Kenyan Citizenship, Avoid Treason Charge

Story:

Former American President Barack Obama will Claim Kenyan citizenship to keep from being Charged for Treason.

Fact Check:

The messages doing rounds on some online outlets claim former U.S. President Barack Obama will Seek Kenyan Citizenship to Avoid Charge for Treason. Accordingly, Obama’s American birth certificate is phony and he will escape to Kenya to avoid being charged for treason in U.S. No, the claims are not true.

Origin of Claims: Obama Will Claim Kenyan Citizenship

In April 2019, radical right-wing conspiracy theorist Mark Taylor appeared on Tiffany FitzHenry’s YouTube program. During the interview, Mark Taylor expressed his opinion saying Obama could not be American and called his birth certificate phony. He also mentions Q of QAnon conspiracy theory saying Obama will seek Kenyan citizenship to keep from being charged for treason in U.S.

Consequently, in late July 2019, End Of The Age Headlines website endoftheageheadlines.wordpress.com published an article around it. Carrying the title ‘Obama will claim Kenyan Citizenship to Keep from Being Tried for Treason,’ the article mentioned below content:

ILLEGAL COMMANDER IN CHIEF: Barack Obama will soon admit to having been born in Kenya, in an attempt to avoid being prosecuted for treason. It’s already been proven that his birth certificate is a phony. Q has even said that he will claim Kenyan citizenship to keep from being charged for treason. Now, if he claims Kenyan citizenship, that means he was a false president, in which case every decision this man has made is now null and void, including the two Supreme Court justices!

Not a Fact

Firstly, no credible authority proved Obama’s American birth certificate is fake or phony. Earlier, there was a fake Kenyan birth certificate of Obama circulating widely online.

Like the messages say, if Obama faces any trials for treason in America, his seeking Kenyan citizenship will not save him from the consequences. Moreover, unlike the claim, even if officials prove Obama is not an American citizen, his decisions as President do not become null and void. So, the messages claiming Obama will claim Kenyan citizenship to avoid charge for treason in U.S. are not true. They in fact originated from uncertain sources and conspiracy theories.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.
