Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday joined the growing chorus of rebuke against Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson for saying that a Muslim shouldn’t be president of the United States.

She even found herself using the same constitutional argument as GOP presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz to discredit Mr. Carson’s remark.  

“Can a Muslim be President of the United States of America? In a word: Yes. Now let’s move on,” tweeted Mrs. Clinton.

The post was signed “H” to indicate that Mrs. Clinton typed the entry herself.

She backed up her statement with a excerpt form Article VI of the U.S. Constitution: “No religious test shall every be required as a qualification to any office of public trust under the United States.”

Mr. Cruz, Texas Republican and tea party champion, earlier cited the same passage during a taping for Iowa Public Television, the Des Moines Register reported.
