Obama Birth Certificate

Moments ago, Trump said, "Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish."

Trump added, "I want to look at it, but I hope it's true, so that we can get on to much more important matters ... he should have done it a long time ago."

He continued, "I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue."

As for the actual document, Trump added, "We have to look at it, we have to see ... is it real? Is it proper? What's on it? But I hope it checks out beautifully."

Honestly.. Birth certificates don't mean anything.

My brother has legal government issued birth certificates stating he was born in the united states, and in mexico.

TRUMP IS AN UNPATRIOTIC *******. I wish he'd lend this much concern over national healthcare or saving Social Security...

UGH!!    

Is Donald Trump serious? Maybe the nation should investigate if his HAIR is real!! Please go away!! This nation is dealing with way more serious issues than worrying if the do***ent is real. If Donald really wants to help, why doesnt he put his money where his mouth is and support all the programs to help benefit our troops. Donald - GET OVER YOURSELF!!

Obama referred to Trump not by name but as a "carnival barker." Obama also said, "We do not have time for this kind of silliness."

If these statements are true, why did Obama preemptively go live on TV to refute Trump's charges at the exact same time Trump was holding a televised press conference in Portsmouth,NH?

But, if Obama's mother was an American citizen doesn't that make her children American citizens?

Of course Trump will question it. Can you imagine this guy as our president? He's crazy! And Trump carrying "the football"? He'd push the button if someone questioned his hair! And can you just imagine how many people that pissed him off would be audited by the IRS?

Ya know...I don't care for Mr. Trump, he's a blow hard, but he's right he did manage to get the President to release the do***ent. Something that should have happened two yrs ago...The President wants to talk about the distraction, well he has no one to blame for that distraction other than himself. He could have ended it in 2008 but decided to push his way through...Ya know I'm not sure if it's "real" or not...I am sure it can be examined. While I do not think Mr. Trump would make a good president....I konw that Mr. Obama has been less than steller. It's time for this country to have a leader with the stones to take care of the problems...

croc, you are uninformed. Seals do not exist on original birth certificates. They are only imprinted on the certified copy you receive when you pay your $5 (or whatever the fee is in your county) to obtain a copy of your cert.

Dislike Obama all you want for whatever reasons you want. But he was, in fact, born in Hawaii.

Imagine if you had to "prove" you were born in the U.S. If the exact same criteria that the birthers are using on Obama was used on every single U.S.-born citizen, we'd all have to leave the country!

Even Trump isn't stupid enough to believe that Obama wasn't born here.
The only reason he joined the birther idiots was for the attention.
