"The 14th Amendment is very questionable as to whether or not somebody can come over, have a baby and immediately that baby is a citizen," the Republican presidential front-runner told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "Amending is too big a deal... I believe you can win it legally."

Trump also said Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's role in handling emails while she was secretary of state is "devastating" to her campaign. Her actions were "either gross incompetence or criminal, and neither's acceptable to be president," he said.

In the wide-ranging interview, Trump also comments on trade, the Pope and the role of his wife and daughter in his campaign, among other topics.
