Best Answer

All US presidents have been American citizens by the time they were elected president and all after Andrew Jackson were born in the United States. The first eight were born before the US existed. The constitution states that a president must be a natural born citizen, which the courts have interpreted to mean the candidate must be born in the United States. It is an internet myth that a president's parents must be born here: the courts have not interpreted the qualifications that way.

In US law, none, though John Tyler (d1862) may have regarded himself as no longer a US citizen following the secession of his native Virginia the previous year.
