    • "You can't be an American citizen and side with that," Whoopi Goldberg said about President Donald Trump's announcement over the weekend that he trusts Russian President Vladimir Putin on 2016 campaign meddling.

      During Monday's episode of "The View," it was Republican Meghan McCain who ripped Trump, specifically calling him an "embarrassment," for having to walk back the comments. She explained that Putin wants Americans to have a lack of faith in the government and to sow chaos.

      "It is very, very important that we don't get desensitized to how intense this is," McCain said. "Our president of the United States of America is saying we can't trust our intelligence community but we can trust a KGB murderous dictator who is aiding and abetting the largest refugee crisis since World War II, the gassing of innocent children in Syria right now, while trying to annex the Baltic states, annexing Crimea, everything going on in the Ukraine. He's dedicated to the destruction of the west and we're watching this play out in real time."

      She confessed that she never thought that as a member of the Republican Party, she would see something like this. She harkened back to President Ronald Reagan who demanded "Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall," and now she's shocked to see a member of that party pal around with Putin. She was particularly curious why Trump would make a move like this while being investigated by special counselor Robert Mueller.

    • Can you help me decide whether to allow my small daughter and son to become American citizens? I am American and my partner is Swedish. We have both lived in Belgium for many years and have no plans to leave. I became a Belgian citizen some years ago and kept my American citizenship. My partner has both her original Swedish and now Belgian citizenship. We are not married. Instead we have a registered partnership, which is common in northern Europe, confers most of the benefits of marriage, and raises no eyebrows. However, the American government does not recognize such partnerships, so in their eyes I am still single. Generally, children of American citizens abroad automatically become American citizens themselves at birth. But our kids fall under an exception. Male American citizens who live abroad and have children out of wedlock with a non-citizen mother do not automatically transmit citizenship to their children unless they sign an "affidavit of support" promising to support their children until the age of 18. If you don't sign before the child reaches 18, the child is not considered an American citizen. This has been upheld by two Supreme Court rulings (Nguyen v. INS and Flores-Villar v. United States). For legal beagles, the relevant statutes are 8 U.S.C. 1401 and 1409.
