Donald Trump: I'm Still A Birther
Donald Trump is still not sure whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that aired Thursday night, the Republican presidential candidate said he was not that interested in talking about the issue, compared to other ones. Honestly, I don’t want to get into it,” Trump said. Asked whether he thought Obama was born in the U.S., Trump responded: “I don’t know. I really don’t know. I don’t know why he wouldn’t release his records.” In the interview, Trump also claimed that Hillary Clinton and John McCain were both birthers, and mentioned how he got Obama to release “something.” Obama released his long-form birth certificate in April 2011 after speculation from Trump and others that he might have been born elsewhere. “Do you know that Hillary Clinton was a birther? She wanted those records and fought like hell. People forgot. You know that John McCain was a birther, wanted those records. They couldn’t get the records. Hillary failed. John McCain failed,” he said.
