    The candidate has to be a Natural born citizen, that means born in the States.

    Nope. The only requirement is that the candidate was born in the states.

    Is this what to US constitution reads ?

    No, it's not in the Constitution because the people who wrote it were not born here.  They had to be here a certain number of years to qualify for the office of the President, etc.  If you are born in the USA, you a natural born citizen regardless of your parents.

    no
