(CNN) - Fresh off scoring a meeting with Donald Trump, Arizona State Rep. Carl Seel says the business mogul is "very supportive" of his proposed so-called "birther bill" that would require any presidential candidate to prove that he or she was, in fact, born in the United States.
"Mr. Trump is very supportive of my bill to just simply require anyone running for president, or, in the case of Arizona, anyone running for any office, to show that they're lawfully qualified to run," Seel told reporters after his meeting with the potential Republican presidential candidate.
Seel's office told CNN the lawmaker reached out to Trump to request a meeting – a request Trump was quick to accept.
Seel added his bill is not targeted at President Obama – who Trump has repeatedly suggested may not have been born in the United States.
"This bill is not about Obama. It's not about that," he said. "It's about future elections and maintaining the integrity of the Constitution."
"In speaking to Mr.Trump, he indicated that he's supportive of clearly enforcing the Constitution and it's quite reasonable for anyone running for office, particularly the highest office in the land, to demonstrate that they were naturally born or have a birth certificate for this nation," Seel continued.
Seel's bill passed an Arizona Senate subcommittee and now awaits a vote by the entire chamber.
In response to the Trump meeting, the Arizona Democratic Party in a statement said, "It's sad to see the attention being paid to a reality TV star hosting a meeting on a fake issue. We have real problems in Arizona and America, and we need real leaders. The Arizona Republicans who wasted our time passing this 'birther' bill will hear a familiar message from voters in November 2012: 'You're fired.'"
