Arnold Schwarzenegger is actively working to change the law so he can run for president in 2016, according to the New York Post.
The Post’s “Page Six” reported Friday that they have exclusively learned of Schwarzenegger’s ambitions. The Post said they obtained the information through a source who is working with him to promote his new movie “Escape Plan.”
“Schwarzenegger has been talking openly about working on getting the constitutional rules changed so he can run for president in 2016,” the source told The Post. “He is ready to file legal paperwork to challenge the rules.”
Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, has been open about his desire to run for the nation’s highest office.
In 2010, told Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” that he would run for president “without any doubt” if legally allowed to do so.
The U.S. Constitution’s natural-born-citizen clause, however, prohibits individuals not born in the U.S. from running for president.
