Donald Trump On Barack Obama: 'Was There A Birth Certificate?' (VIDEO)


Donald Trump on ABC's "This Week" insisted yet again that the issue of Barack Obama's birth certificate is up for debate.

Yes, Trump hasn’t given up.

In March 2011, during a Good Morning America interview, Donald Trump said he was seriously considering running for president, that he was a "little" skeptical of Obama's citizenship.

The White House had released the long form of President Barack Obama's birth certificate in April 2011 in response to questions about whether he was really born in the U.S.

The certificate said Obama was born in Hawaii, which made him eligible to hold the office of president.

This was also followed by a brief feud with television host Bill Maher who mocked Trump by saying he would donate $5 million to the charity of Trump’s choice, if the "Celebrity Apprentice" host could prove that he is not the son of an orangutan.

Trump on Sunday said to Jonathan Karl, “Was there a birth certificate? You tell me. Some people say that was not his birth certificate. I’m saying I don’t know. Nobody knows.”

 Maybe Trump thought that this was the right (and ripe) time to bring up the ‘birther’ theories again since people in the United States don’t really trust Obama as much as they used to after the National Security Agency ‘spying’ scandal.

But it’s still as annoying. Trump has to move on. He really has to.
