Donald Trump Rehashes Obama “Birther” Debate
Donald Trump is still questioning President Obama’s citizenship. The real estate tycoon’s short-lived bid to become president was never taken seriously by the American public, and now Trump is drumming up more un-needed personal attention by blasting the commander in chief. “I’ve never really changed. Nothing’s changed my mind,” he told CBS News.
Trump has also publicly endorsed Mitt Romney, who now has enough delegates to clinch the Republican nomination. Given the unfavorable spotlight brought on by Trump, Romney has distanced himself from the controversy, maintaining that he believes that the president is in fact a U.S. citizen. As for Trump, he feels that the president’s birthplace is among the most important issues surrounding his re-election campaign. “Is it the most important thing? In a way it is. You’re not allowed to be the president if you’re not born in the country.”
Last year Obama caved to Trump’s demands by releasing a copy of his birth certificate which clearly shows his birth place as Honolulu. “We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We’ve got better stuff to do,” the president said. “Over the last two and half years, I have watched with amusement. I have been puzzled with the degree with which this thing just kept going.”
Perhaps any inquiries surrounding Obama’s birth place are merely a distraction tactic by Romney’s campaign, as he prepares to delve into a race that will likely define his political career. However, just in case there is anymore leftover doubt, click below to view a copy of the president’s birth certificate.
