Thats cool. I spend nights awake thinking about the Somali president! Good riddance. If he was two feet in front of my face I would have no idea who the hell he is. No great loss!

Somalia has a president? Somalia has a government to have a president?

First the article title is misleading, apparently he initiated the process immediately after Trump was elected, the article's title implies that it was his latest comments that prompted the renunciation.

Second, great of him to take advantage of everything being a US citizen offered and then conveniently renounce it after he was done with it, he and Kapernick should hang out together.

Michelle Bachman was a dual citizen, Ted Cruz was a dual citizen. Both renounced the other citizenship recently when the facts came to light and they received criticism.

The president of Somalia went there from the US to help that wartorn and suffering country get back on it's feet. Good for him.
Is it back in its feet yet? Maybe youíll be taking your family there on vacation?

Serving the US or serving herself and her religion? There is no such thing as a selfless politician.
