Trump On Birth Certificate: Obama Spent Millions ‘To Get Away From This Issue’

Donald Trump continued with his mission to question the whereabouts of President Obama’s birth certificate, in an appearance on Fox & Friends this morning. Before the birther issue though, Trump wanted to share his assessment of how Obama is handling Libya and the budget: “we have people that have absolutely no idea what they’re doing running this country.”

Back to Obama’s birth certificate, Trump bluntly states “this guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t.” Trump goes on to say that he is really concerned:

“You have no doctors that remember, you have no nurses – this is the president of the United States – that remember. . . . Why can’t he produce a birth certificate? . . . I brought it up just routinely, and all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and I’m starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country?”

Trump admits there may be newspaper ads suggesting Obama was born in Hawaii, but claims there are a lot of reasons to explain the existence for such ads. And Trump declares Obama “spent millions of dollars trying to get away from this issue, millions of dollars in legal fees.” Apparently people are calling Trump from all over to not back down on this issue, and it seems he is listening to their advice as he repeatedly stressed here “if you’re not born in the United States, you cannot be President.”
