Speaking at a state dinner for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Thursday, President Obama made fun of Ted Cruz’s eligibility to run for the White House.

Obama praised both the United States and Canada for propagating the “idea that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can make it if you try, no matter the circumstances of your birth.”

“We see this in our current presidential campaign. After all, where else could a boy born in Calgary grow up to run for president of the United States?”
