Sources close to president-elect Donald Trump have confirmed that they are investigating documents confirming that he was actually born in the nation of Loompaland. 

If confirmed, this non-US status would automatically make him ineligible to become the next president of the United States. 

According to a report in the New York Times, a birth certificate has emerged showing that Trump’s place of birth is recorded officially as Loompaville, Loompaland, on 14th June 1946. 

This would mean that his reported birthplace of New York City is inaccurate, and officials from the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) and preparing to interview Mr Trump ‘as a matter of urgency.’

An INS spokesperson said: ‘Although we are not prepared to comment specifically at the present time, the nation of Loompaland is its own international entity under self-rule.’

‘Therefore, someone born in this territory could never be considered as a natural US citizen, and the US constitution clearly states that non-natural US citizens cannot run for the presidency.’

‘From a short-term perspective, we will also be trying to identify if there has been a deliberate attempt to conceal his background – this could lead to criminal proceedings.’

We asked a US politics expert what would happen if Trump was pre-impeached. 

Prof Dandy Stickleback-Fandangler of the University of Oklahoma said: ‘Technically the presidency would pass to the runner-up if the new president hasn’t taken office, but Hillary Clinton is currently undergoing DNA testing after an allegation was made that she was manufactured by Skynet.’
