According to an op - ed in Newsweek , Kamala Harris likely does not qualify for the Office of Vice President. Professor John Eastman, Professor of Law at Chapman University and Senior Fellow at the Claremont Institute raised these concerns based on evidence known to date.

"So before we so cavalierly accept Senator Harris' eligibility for the office of vice president, we should ask her a few questions about the status of her parents at the time of her birth," he wrote.

The decision to publish the op-ed sparked swift backlash, with critics claiming the magazine had opted to spread a racist "birther" theory similar to the one President Trump leveled against then-President Obama for years.

"This op-ed is being used by some as a tool to perpetuate racism and xenophobia. We apologize," Josh Hammer, Newsweek's opinion editor, and Nancy Cooper, its global editor in chief, wrote in the note attached to the op-ed on Friday.

But to many readers, the essay inevitably conveyed the ugly message that Senator Kamala Harris, a woman of color and the child of immigrants, was somehow not truly American," they continued.

"The op-ed was never intended to spark or to take part in the racist lie of Birtherism, the conspiracy theory aimed at delegitimizing Barack Obama, but we should have recognized the potential, even probability, that that could happen," they added. "All of us at Newsweek are horrified that this op-ed gave rise to a wave of vile Birtherism directed at Senator Harris."

Hammer and Cooper wrote that they had heard calls to take down the piece, but said they decided to leave it up with their note in order to be "transparent."

The clarification marks the culmination of a dayslong controversy that was heightened this week when Trump was asked about the op-ed's claims, responding that "the lawyer that wrote that piece is a very highly qualified, talented lawyer" and that he had "no idea if that's right."

Jared Kushner, the president's son in law who holds significant sway both in the White House and for his 2020 reelection campaign, spent Friday defending Trump, saying he was not "promoting" the birther conspiracy and accusing the media of perpetuating a false narrative.

"Right now you're the one spreading that disinformation, the president was at a coronavirus briefing, he was asked by a reporter about a report in Newsweek, and his words were, 'I don't know anything about that.' And since then the media has been going wild, basically saying he was pushing a theory. I'll take him at his word that he said he doesn't know anything about that, and that's what he said," Kushner said Friday afternoon on CNN.
