U.S. Republican presidential candidate Cruz speaks at the Goldfield Old Schoolhouse in Goldfield, IowaBy Luciana Lopez MASON CITY, Iowa (Reuters) – Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz on Friday defended his American citizenship at a campaign stop in Iowa, pushing back against questions raised by rival Donald Trump, who suggested Cruz’s Canadian birthplace might complicate his White House bid. “I’ve never been naturalized,” said Cruz, the U.S. senator from Texas who is among the front-runners for the party’s nomination. “It was the process of being born that made me a U.S. citizen.” Cruz is a U.S. citizen by birth because his mother was American, although he was born in Canada.
