Trump Questions Obama Birth Certificate

4/27/2011 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump is already taking the credit for getting Barack Obama to go public with his birth certificate ... saying, "I'm very proud of myself" ... but adds, "We have to see if it's real."

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."

To dd: DID YOU FLUNK GOVERNMENT IN SCHOOL? The eligibility reqauirements to become GOVERNOR of a state are NOT THE SAME as those requirements for an individual to be eligible for the office of the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. As everyone knows - even you, I assume, Schwarzenegger was born in AUSTRIA. But Schwarzenegger never ran for PRESIDENT. Geez, dd. Do a little history reading, will ya?

To dd: your comment "HAWAII IS MORE AMERICAN THAN PANAMA. McCain????"

I give up. You really don't understand, do you? A U.S. military installation/base is considered U.S. territory. All territory under the control of the federal government is considered part of the "United States" for purposes of law. I hope that's clear to you now. Ciao.

I am from Australia and i even have my doubts. Let Donald Trump do what he wants he has the money and power he might be on to something He is not a racist just that Obama has done nothing for your country, what the hell has he done? I believe Donald Trump could get your crappy country back on track now theres a man with power. He even tried to fix the problem with offering to buy the site where they wanted to put up that mosque where that horrifying 9/11 happened. He tried then to help his fellow New yorkers so ya all stop bitching on Donald Trump he may well be your saviour in the end certainly not Obama. Regards isabella Rottura From Melbourne Australia

Trump is just a snake oil salesman who's confused the actual problems this country is facing with his reality show crap. And there are just enough people who think selecting a President is like voting for who you like on American Idol to think he's swell. Ah, the dumbing down of America - he's just the person to lead that effort while he's putting up his smoke screen.

Still, in the spirit of full disclosure, it would be fun to know what's under that insect on his head, how much he paid for each of his wives, etc. Trot out those tax returns, windbag! We learn more about The Donald and it's really, really not pretty.

WHY IS THIS AN ISSUE ON WHERE OBAMA WAS BORN? IT'S BECAUSE OF HIS BACKGROUND & WHERE HIS MOM & DAD CAME FROM. THIS IS ALL CHILDISH.. IF ANYONE 2 YEARS AGO HAD THE SLIGHTEST BIT OF DOUBT ON WEATHER OR NOT HE WAS BORN HERE THEN THEY SHOULD OF DISQUALIFIED HIM AND INVESTIGATED MORE. WHO THE HELL IS DONALD TRUMP ANYWAY?! HIS STATEMENT THIS MORNING " I ACCOMPLISHED WHAT I WANTED & NOW i have to check if it's real" oh please when did you become the "birth certificate police" get over this subject & get over yourself their are way more important things TO FIGURE OUT!! HE'S RIDICULOUS & IS ONLY EMBARESSING HIMSELF..

Birthers = Racists = Dumbasses!!!!
Donald Trump, go "fire" youself for being so freaking stupid.
Come on America - we can do better than this piece of crap. He is spewing more hate filled non-sense than the Westboro Baptist Church members. Which he may very well be a member.
