Looks like there is more to come from him, as he left hints recently that he's 'seriously looking to end US birthright citizenship, though there are all the chances for this move to face legal challenges right after the proposal and also having bleak chances to survive at Supreme court.

The 14th Amendment of the US constitution guarantees birthright citizenship and if Trump proposes to end it, lawmakers and legal scholars will be challenging the ability of a president.
