Trump Admits President Is An American While Falsely Saying Of Hillary Clinton, ‘She Started It’

Let’s hope it hurt whatever passes for his soul when he said, “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period.”

 

Alan Rappeport, Nick Corasaniti & Maggie Haberman@The New York Times (9/16/16): “Mr. Trump also falsely accused Hillary Clinton of having first raised questions about Mr. Obama’s birthplace during the 2008 Democratic primary. ‘Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy,’ Mr. Trump said. ‘I finished it.’ During the 2008 Democratic contest, Mrs. Clinton’s senior strategist at one point pondered, in an internal memo that was later leaked, the ways in which Mr. Obama’s personal background differed from many Americans. But contrary to Mr. Trump’s assertion, neither Mrs. Clinton nor her campaign ever publicly questioned Mr. Obama’s citizenship or birthplace, in Hawaii.”
