|Hey Donald, Were You More Certifiable Then Or Just |
Pandering To Anti-Clinton Obama Fans Now?
hahahaha ... AND YOU are the one who raised the issue again. You're your own worst enemy:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Friday conceded that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S., standing down from years of false accusations that made the businessman a central figure in the discredited “birther” movement.
“President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” Mr. Trump said at an event with the news media.
He then falsely assigned blame to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for igniting the suggestion, back in the 2008 Democratic primary campaign, that Mr. Obama, a Hawaii native, was born overseas. There is no evidence that Mrs. Clinton or her 2008 campaign launched the birther movement; Mr. Trump didn’t take questions from reporters before leaving a hotel ballroom.
Mr. Trump’s statement forces into the 2016 presidential campaign a conspiracy theory he fanned for years, though he has largely avoided discussing the issue of late. In early 2011, Mr. Trump galvanized some support among Republicans by repeatedly advocating the claim that Mr. Obama was born in Kenya, as his father was. That campaign to cast doubt on Mr. Obama’s citizenship, and thus his legitimacy to be president, got enough traction that the White House that spring released Mr. Obama’s long-form birth certificate.Read the rest of the story HERE.
