Trump now says he’s “concerned” about the president’s birthplace.
Will Donald Trump ever stop?
The New York businessman, who is considering a presidential bid, has released his own birth certificate and is now saying that he’s “really concerned” that President Obama was not born in the U.S. In an interview with Fox & Friends Monday morning, he said that since he started talking about the issue, “all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and I’m starting to wonder myself whether or not he was born in this country.”
Trump also called Whoopi Goldberg’s suggestion during his appearance on The View last week that the birther theory is fueled by racism insulting, adding that race has nothing to do with his so-called concern.
“Now, this guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t,” Trump continued. “And I didn't think this was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it’s turning out to be a very big deal because people now are calling me from all over saying, please don't give up on this issue. If you weren't born in this country, you cannot be president.”
For the sake of the country, let’s hope that people who say crazy things that can easily be perceived to be racist and insulting just simply for attention, also cannot be president.
