One correction ... The president does not have to be born in the US. He/she must be a US citizen by virtue of birth. There are literally hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of born citizens that were born outside the US. My youngest daughter is one of them.

Very helpful.  Thanks.  Sometimes when I listen to individuals speak about wanting to be president, I can forget what the job of president entails......I think some of the people that want to be president, have not taken the time to investigate the job requirements either.
