Obama, You're Fired
Trump Wants The Birth Certificate
are a fan of The Donald, or not, he handles the harpies on The View
masterfully. Although Trump has some interesting things to say,
the good stuff starts at the 5:25 minute mark. Use the slider.
Trump Won't Back Off
Jim Meyers and Ashley Martella says Donald
Trump is not backing down from his demand that Barack Obama
produce his birth certificate and stepped up his criticism by
questioning why he has not released other personal records, including
college transcripts and legislative papers.
The billionaire real
estate tycoon and star of "The Apprentice" created a stir on Wednesday
when he said on "The View" (video) that Obama must release his birth
Now Trump has reiterated his call in an exclusive
interview with Newsmax.TV, with this simple message for Obama: Why don't
you produce your birth certificate and put to rest all speculation that
you were born outside the United States?
He says Obama's birth
certificate controversy is a "strange situation" -- there are
conflicting reports as to what Honolulu hospital he was born at, and the
governor of Hawaii claims he somehow remembers Obama being born 50 years
"It's a very simple situation," Trump says in regard to the
birth certificate issue. "I'd just like to see his birth certificate.
"I'm hearing all sorts of stories that his own family can't agree
which hospital he was born in and lots of other things, and I'm trying
to find out where is the birth certificate. I have a birth certificate. Where is his birth certificate?
"If you're born in this country,
to the best of my knowledge people have a birth certificate."
Donald Trump doubled down last night.
The bombastic conservative business leader told Geraldo Rivera, "I don't
want to be right on this issue... I just want to see his birth
certificate." Trump also said his conservative friends told him to
drop the issue but that he believes it is too important.
Here's Mine. Where's Yours?
says Donald Trump now sees himself as
something of a patron saint for the Birthers -- and he's even released
his own birth certificate as he steps up criticism of Obama.
Seeking to pump more energy into the Birther movement and quirky
chase for the White House, Trump on Monday provided a copy of his birth
certificate to the conservative website NewsMax -- which has played a
leading role in trumpeting Birther mythology.

And in an interview
on Fox News, Trump cast himself as something akin to the rebel leader of
the Birther movement.
"Now, this guy either has a birth
certificate or he doesn't," Trump said. "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."
Trump's insistence that he's being
encouraged to continue on his Birther crusade has led to what he says is
the startling revelation that, "all of a sudden, a lot of facts are
emerging and I'm starting to wonder myself whether or not [Obama] was
born in this country."
Trump also called for Hawaii Democratic
Gov. Neil Abercrombie to be investigated for stating that he -- as a
friend of Obama's parents -- remembers Obama's birth.

remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break! He's just trying to do
something for his party."

"To be honest with you, I want him to have a
birth certificate," Trump said, "because [otherwise] that would mean
that his presidency was, I guess you'd have to say, illegal.
You have to be born in the United States. I hope that he was
born in the United States. I hope -- but I want to get rid of
the word hope, I want to know for sure -- I hope that he was born in
the United States and I hope this doesn't become a big issue."

getting a lot of traction with this campaign of his.

They can't let him go on unchallenged. There will be one. I
am curious to know what it will be.
Politico's Ben Smith Boots It
Politico's Ben Smith, a
long-time foe of Birthers,
wrote an article proclaiming, "Trump fails to produce birth certificate,"
in which he writes: Donald Trump made headlines earlier today when he provided what he
said was a copy of his birth certificate -- but a quick check reveals
it's actually not an official document.
The paper that Trump
released says "Jamaica Hospital" on top and lists the date and time of
what he says was his birth to "Mr. and Mrs. Fred C. Trump." The piece of
paper has a seal at the bottom.
But after several New York
City-based readers contacted POLITICO's Maggie Haberman, her call to
city officials revealed that an actual birth certificate, which is
issued by the Department of Health, would have the agency's seal and
also a signature of the city registrar -- neither of which the Trump
document has. Officials said the city Health Department is the
"sole issuing authority" of official birth certificates in New York, and
that the document would clearly say so, and "city officials said it's
not an official document."
It appears instead to be a hospital
"certificate of birth," meaning the piece of paper the hospital gave to
his family saying he was born. Such a document typically has the
signature of the hospital administrator and the attending physician.
Trump lawyer and advisor Michael Cohen didn't respond to Haberman's
question about the document.
Trump's mother, it should be noted,
was born in Scotland, which is not part of the United States. His
plane is registered in the Bahamas, also a foreign country. This
fact pattern -- along with the wave of new questions surrounding what he
claims is a birth certificate -- raises serious doubts about his
eligibility to serve as President of the United States.

on March 10, 1942. She was an American citizen at the time of The

two American citizen parents. He meets the Article II, Section I,
Clause 5 requirements for eligibility.

Last week, The DC's Jonathan Strong reported that Republican

authenticity of a 1961 newspaper ad Obama's family placed in the
Honolulu Advertiser that announced his birth, telling Ingraham, "an ad
like that could have been staged. I don't mean staged at the time,
I mean it could have been computer-generated five years ago, eight years
ago, two years ago."
Trump suggested that ads announcing births
are rare, noting that, "the Rockefeller family doesn't buy ads in a
newspaper, now you're going to have two poor people putting an ad in a
newspaper that their son was born? There's something fishy about
the whole thing."

"Did I Hit A Nerve?"
Obama, Donald Trump, and the Collective
Robin of Berkeley
says There is a fascinating concept in Jungian psychology called the
"collective unconscious." While the "personal unconscious" stores
our own unique memories, the "collective unconscious" is the reservoir
for an entire culture.
It's amazing how certain people and
phenomena find their way into the collective unconscious, whether
intentionally or not. For instance, take the term, "googling."
Those young Stanford dudes didn't realize that they would not only
change the nature of Internet searching, they'd add a new word into the
vocabulary. People may choose to search via Bing or Yahoo, but
nobody "bings." So why did googling sweep the nation?
Perhaps Google is a superior search engine. But it may simply come
down to being in the right place at the right time.
people who become overnight sensations, both for good and nefarious
reasons. Back in the 60's, everyone was familiar with those evil
people who comprised the Manson Family. And when Joe the Plumber
asked Obama a question, he was suddenly famous (and subject to
government investigations). While very few people outside of
Alaska heard of Sarah Palin a few years ago, she became a household name
as soon as she entered the national arena.
And then there's the
"Birther" controversy. The progressives have controlled and framed
the concept right from the get-go. This has been one of the many
issues (including "tea baggers") that the left has seized upon to tar
The left has painted "Birthers" as racists, nuts,
and paranoids. What gets left out of the equation is: one, Obama
has spent millions of dollars on attorneys protecting his birth
certificate; two, Obama apparently traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when
Americans were warned from going there; and three, Obama's social
security number is purportedly from Connecticut, a state in which he
[ And that's
just the tip of the iceberg ]
Although there are
valid questions about the mysterious Mr. O, until lately, it's been
impossible to get the average American to listen. This is because
the left is so much better at controlling what enters the collective
unconscious. Of course, the left controls the flow of ideas by
maintaining a stranglehold on the mainstream media. But there's
another reason: the left subscribes to Alinsky-type smear tactics.
Progressives will call their opponents a "tea bagger" even though
the phrase is sexually explicit and lewd. They'll allow Bill Maher
and other amoral types to verbally rape conservative women.
Conservatives don't follow suit because these below-the-belt tactics are
anathema. While conservatives don't have to practice gutter
politics, we do need our message to penetrate the collective
unconscious. Enter the intrepid Donald Trump.
been beating the drum lately about Obama's birth certificate -- and the
lack thereof. Trump has also been wondering whether there's
something else on Obama's birth certificate (who's his daddy?) that
Obama doesn't want anyone to know. Fortunately for conservatives,
when Donald Trump talks, people listen.
And this is why Trump
needs to keep raising the birth certificate issue. He shouldn't
stop even when the left ridicules him. I hope that he expands his
mission to include the salient question of whether unrepentant domestic
terrorist Bill Ayers penned Obama's autobiography. We need a
magnetic figure like Trump going where no man or woman has been able to
Because if Trump keeps putting the heat on Obama, something
amazing may happen. Rather than Obama and his henchmen continually
putting conservatives on the defensive, we may finally see the reverse.
People may start getting nervous about Obama and pay attention to
the cracks in the facade. Their concerns may leak into the
collective unconscious and take root, as surely as did the concept of "googling."
If people start questioning who is this mystery man in the White House,
they may feel less comfortable pulling the lever for him in November

Donald Trump, on Friday at his Manhattan office tower.
Carl Seel, backer of HB2177 -- a bill that has been moving through the

years, in just three weeks of TV interviews.

before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty
and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect
for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent.
Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written
many bestsellers), is not at a very high level. More importantly,
her facts are wrong!
As far as her comments on the so-called
"Birther" issue, I don't need Ms. Collins's advice. There is a
very large segment of our society who believe that Barack Obama, indeed,
was not born in the United States. His grandmother from Kenya
stated, on tape, that he was born in Kenya and she was there to watch
the birth. His family in Honolulu is fighting over which hospital
in Hawaii he was born in-they just don't know.
He has not been
able to produce a "birth certificate" but merely a totally unsigned
"certificate of live birth" -- which is totally different and of very
little significance. Unlike a birth certificate, a certificate of
live birth is very easy to obtain. Equally of importance, there
are no records in Hawaii that a Barack Hussein Obama was born there --
no bills, no doctors names, no nurses names, no registrations, no
payments, etc. As far as the two notices placed in newspapers,
many things could have happened, but some feel the grandparents put an
ad in order to show that he was a citizen of the U.S. with all of the
benefits thereto. Everybody, after all, and especially then,
wanted to be a United States citizen.
The term used by Ms.
Collins -- "Birther" -- is very derogatory and is meant in a derogatory
way. Had this been George Bush or almost any other President or
Presidential aspirant, they would never have been allowed to attain
office, or would have been thrown out of office very quickly.
For some reason, the press protects President Obama beyond anything or
anyone I have ever seen. What they don't realize is that if he was
not born in the United States, they would have uncovered the greatest
"scam" in the history of our country. In other words, they would
become the hottest writer since Watergate, or beyond.

DONALD J. TRUMP New York, April 7, 2011
"It Couldn’t Have Gone Any Better"
Sharon Rondeau says a source who attended the
meeting with Donald Trump at the Trump Tower in New York City yesterday
morning said that "It couldn’t have gone any better."
Reporter: Trump gave them a little over 30 minutes.
WorldNetDaily had been patched in somehow and apparently had been privy
to what was going on. Also, there were a lot of media outside in
the hallway, but none was allowed into the meeting. The only
people in the meeting were Trump, (Michael D.) Cohen, and the three
people from Arizona.
The Post & Email: Who were the people
who came from Arizona?
Citizen Reporter: Rep. Carl
Seel, Jeff, and Kelly, who represented a TEA Party group. I was
told that Trump didn’t seem to know about the "natural born Citizen"
issue at all. He gave Jeff homework by saying, "I want to know
everything about 'natural born' citizen, and I want to know about these
reports from Kenya when members of the Kenyan Parliament had talked
about Obama having been born there." Trump was very, very familiar
with the tape from the grandmother; he actually quoted from it verbatim.
But he wanted people to gather more information and get it to him.
The Post & Email: I included the
statements made by the
Parliament members in my letter to Mr. Trump.
Yes, right. He has made a pledge that he will go to Arizona in the
summer. He fully supports the
Arizona eligibility bill and throws his weight behind that. He
is going to go to Arizona in support of it if it hasn’t passed by then.
I was told that the primary topics of the meeting were the Arizona
eligibility bill and Obama’s eligibility.
There was no follow-up
meeting scheduled. When they came out of the meeting, Rep. Carl
Seel spoke to the press. As they were leaving, Theresa Cao said
something to Jeff, who was trying to figure out who she was. He
asked her, "Are you Theresa Cao?" and she said, "Yes, I am." And
she went to lunch with him.
The Post & Email: Did you say
that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was invited but was unable to go?
Citizen Reporter: That was based on an earlier conversation,
but I didn’t reconfirm that. We were informed and believe that
Gov. Brewer was unable to attend.
The Post & Email: If the
meeting began at 11:30 and ended around noon, what were they doing
between then and now? Were they talking to the gaggle of reporters
Citizen Reporter: Only Rep. Seel spoke with them;
that was the agreement that the other two were not to answer questions.
He made a brief statement to the press and reassured Jeff and Kelly,
saying that he had "said some good stuff." As Jeff said, though,
who knows what gets reported by the press these days? Then they
went to lunch.
I followed up with a phone call and left a voice
message which Jeff got, and when he called me, he said, "We’ve been out
of here for over an hour and went to lunch."
I’ll have more
information tonight. Jeff said that Trump was engaged, asked
questions and asked people to get information for him. He clearly
showed that he wants to know more. If there was an issue with
which he was unfamiliar, he definitely asked for people to get
information back to him. Jeff characterized it that he was
receiving a homework assignment from Trump. Kind-of as if they
were "The Apprentices" there.
There's an update to this item --
here . . .
Trump Is Now Turning To The Real Issue
says Trump has been right in bringing up Obama’s eligibility/natural
born citizen issue -- the "Birther" issue. No other public figure
has the clout or the guts to tackle it. No other politician or
ethical reporter will cover this issue in any depth because the
Political Correctness (PC) police have been out in full force
intimidating all who might dare to raise any questions. They’ve
been very successful too. That’s why "Birther" is the name
everyone associates with it; and why most associate the meaning the name
implies -- not born in Hawaii. No independent thought necessary!
However, it is an issue that needs to be addressed, if for no other
reason that we have military men and women fighting around the world at
Obama’s beck and call.
And the high stakes game, it appears will
have a few more hands to play.
The issue with Obama’s eligibility
(regardless of what the media is trying to lead you to believe) not only
involves the place of his birth but also his conflicted allegiances
vis-à-vis the citizenship of his alleged father.
Did you see that Trump had a meeting with a group that included a
Rep. from Arizona and gave out some homework? In that meeting, Mr.
Trump asked for information regarding the term "natural born citizen".
Only the Donald can assign research as homework and not have to pay for
it. Once Donald Trump receives the information asked for, he will
then be in a position to force the main street media's hand; and call
them on their decision to cut the public out of considering the Obama
eligibility issue in any meaningful, thoughtful way.
labeling everyone asking questions "Birthers" is neither meaningful nor
Keep in mind that, Trump also has his mother's
naturalized citizenship status as a possible springboard should he
decide to file a suit for a Declaratory Judgment indicating he (Trump)
is eligible. That’s an ace in the hole that only Trump has!
During Trump's meeting with the
delegation from Arizona, he was introduced to the "natural born" issue
for the first time, and asked for more information. Once he
focuses on the constitutional issue, he could be very, very threatening
to Team Obama.

Given that Obama's primary claim to the
presidency has been his compelling life story -- his biracialism, his
international upbringing, especially the time he spent in Muslim lands
-- the media has shown shockingly little interest in several pieces of
information about Obama's life which might legitimately concern voters.
Nowhere in his biographies, for example, does Obama mention his 1981
trip to Pakistan, where he stayed with influential political leaders
from that country at a time when a State Department advisory warned U.S.
citizens against travel to Pakistan. There has also been a strange
disinterest in Obama's 2006 trip to Kenya where, as a sitting U.S.
senator, Obama criticized the incumbent government (a U.S. ally) and
barnstormed with a Marxist candidate he supported. So too, there
has been nary a peep among media elites over Obama's funding of the
radical "education" work of bomb thrower Bill Ayers, or his own work on
behalf of the activist group ACORN, the now defunct largest purveyor of
voter registration fraud in American history (and, apparently, an
enabler of under aged prostitution.).
One of the functions of
the media is to protect the public from fraudulent statements made by
public figures. The unwillingness of the media to fulfill this
role in the case of Obama has led to significant, and probably needless,
public tension. Obama's resistance to releasing the long version
of his birth certificate, has served not only to raise legitimate
speculation about the circumstances surrounding his birth, but to give
fodder to Obama critics.
Gail Collins, the New York Times' most
reliably uninteresting liberal attack dog, questioned Trump's sanity
just for raising the birth certificate issue. But would she say
the same about famed black Vanderbilt University Law Professor and Obama
supporter Carol Swain? Swain has said "I think that by not
releasing it [the full birth certificate], it makes people much more
passionately opposed to the president. Moreover, for a president
who was elected on the basis of his personal background, it is troubling
that Obama himself would want to withhold such basic information."
The media's curiosity about the background of those running for
national office seemed to know no bounds when it came to George W.
Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard or the sexual behavior of
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's daughter. But during and since the
2008 campaign a virtual wall of silence has been constructed around
This has important implications for the country.
Questions about Obama's family and his relationship to Islam, for
example, and hence his world view, remain subjects of speculation.
Former CIA officer Larry Johnson, for example, believes that the full
birth record from the State of Hawaii was probably amended in 1968 [it
was amended in 1996] to show Obama was adopted by his step
father, the Indonesian Muslim Lolo Soetoro, that he became formally
known for a time as "Barry Soetoro," and may even have his religion
listed as Muslim. This would completely change what Obama has said
about his past and represent a public fraud of a very significant
At the very least the full record might help explain
Obama's strange discomfort with exercising American power against
radical Muslim regimes in Libya and elsewhere, where he has farmed out
the defense of American interests to the United Nations, and his
insistence on "dialogue" with rogue Muslim regimes in Syria and Iran.
All of this while touting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Al Qaeda
associated Muslim opposition groups in Libya as democracy craving
Some of the missing details of Obama's life
are doubtlessly trivial. Obama probably has benign explanations
for not providing more information about them. Even Trump admits
that the evidence strongly suggests Obama was born in Hawaii and is an
American citizen. But that Obama has not yet released this
information, and that the media refuses to criticize him for not doing
so, is a testament not to the questionong of "Birthers," but to Obama's
penchant for secrecy, and the dangerous amount of latitude the media has
been willing to cede him.
Trump Beating Entire GOP Field By 9 Points
is reporting that a new
PPP poll released on Friday shows Donald Trump leading the
Republican presidential primary race by much more than a hair.
In fact, the poll shows the brash real estate tycoon turned reality TV
show host posting a large nine-point lead on the nearest competition.
It's the latest in a flurry of recent surveys to show The Donald running
strong in the GOP field, but it's the first to show him all alone at the
front of the pack.
Trump garnered 26% of the vote, followed by
Mike Huckabee (17%), Mitt Romney (15%), Newt Gingrich (11%), and Sarah
Palin (8%.) Ron Paul earned 5%, while Michele Bachmann and Tim
Pawlenty took 4% each.
But despite Trump's sudden sprint to the
front of the field, his wide lead isn't necessarily a sign of his
strength so much as a sign of the weakness of the overall GOP field at
As TPM noted earlier this week, only a handful of
Republican candidates have strong name recognition, while others --
notably Pawlenty, who is one of the few potential candidates to have
already announced a presidential exploratory committee -- are virtually
As for those well-known candidates, Republican voters
aren't exactly thrilled about them. In a recent CNN poll, 53% of
Republicans said Palin should run for president, but nearly as many,
47%, said she should stay out of the race. And in a PPP poll last
month, only 51% of Republicans viewed Romney favorably, while 50% had a
favorable opinion of Gingrich.
That left a huge gap for a
candidate with high name recognition, which Trump certainly has, to
swoop in and peel support away from other contenders.
likely playing into Trump's rise -- his rapid cornering of the Birther
market. Through expressing intense, persistent skepticism about
Obama's citizenship -- with cable news apparently happy to come along
for the ride -- Trump's been able to quickly grab hold of that sizable
part of the GOP base still committed to theorieslong since dismissed as conspiracy.
Gets tiresome, doesn't it?
"Theories long since dismissed as conspiracy." Dismissed by who?
Barack Obama? CNN's John King?
The PPP poll found a sizable Birther
base within the party, as 23% of respondents said they'd be "unwilling"
to vote for any candidate who says Obama was born in the U.S.
Additionally, only 38% said they would be willing to vote for such a
candidate, while 39% were unsure.
There's a long way to go before
the first primary contest next year, and as more candidates enter the
race and as such raise their profiles, the standings are sure to change.
But even at this early stage, a poll that shows such dominance
by a figure whose flirtation with the presidency may be little more than
mega-publicity stunt will make for uncomfortable reading for those
casting themselves as more serious candidates -- who, for now, find
themselves staring up...at Trump.
The PPP poll was conducted
April 7-10 among 400 Republican voters nationwide.

Trump Says Obama "Lives In The World Of
says that fresh off the news of a new poll showing him leading the
pack of Republicans lining up to take on Obama in 2012, Donald Trump
reiterated his "Birther" claims today at a Tea Party rally in Boca
Raton, Fla., and blamed George W. Bush for Obama being in office.
"[Obama] lives in the world of the make-believe, and even the fact
that he became president is the world of the make believe," Trump said
before an audience of hundreds during his keynote speech.
W. Bush gave us Obama, and I'm not happy about it. We have a man
right now that will almost certainly go down as the worst Pres in the
history of the U.S.," he said.
During his speech, Trump
criticized Obama on major issues including the ongoing deficit struggle,
the economy and the U.S. role in the conflict in Libya and the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan, saying, "We can't afford education, we can't
afford to build a road, and now we're in Iraq, Afghan, and now Libya,"
he said. "What we're doing over there is ridiculous."
the subject of Iraq, the real estate tycoon and host of "The Apprentice"
posited that once the U.S. military completely leaves the country, it
will be taken over by Iran "within minutes."
Trump also made
clear his stance on a number of hot-button issues, including his
pro-life and anti-gun control stances.
While repeatedly referring
to the "terrible" state of the economy, Trump indicated that if he were
to win the presidency, "China and OPEC and all of the many nations
ripping off this country of ours ... will be a pleasure to deal with."
Still Trump has not quite put his cards on the table in terms of a
2012 bid, but made it clear that he feels if he wins, he will be a wild
success. "If I decide to run, if I win, I will not be raising
taxes, but will be taking in billions of dollars from other countries
and will be creating vast numbers of productive jobs, and will rebuild
our country," he said. "The U.S. will be great again.

Donald Trump Breaks Through The

we got right now -- but he makes for one awesome Obama attack dog.
With the self assurance that only money, power and celebrity can buy,
Trump has been knocking down the walls the main stream media have
erected around Obama to expose parts of his background that liberals
would prefer never see the light of day.

legitimate topic of conversation. Finally someone has destroyed
the false ObamaMedia narrative that a "Certification of Live Birth" and
a birth certificate are the same thing (they're
Last week Trump raised the stakes by attacking
Obama over his real estate dealings with convicted Chicago slumlord
Rezko. While ObamaMedia reporters have been happily reporting
Trump's eligibility issue, something they believe most Americans will
just laugh away, they have not spent anywhere near the same energy
publicizing Obama’s connections to Rezko, a story that could really hurt
Obama should it become common knowledge.
There is no chuckling
away Rezko’s purchase of the lot next to Obama’s Chicago home and the
subsequent sale of a strip of land to Obama that "conferred a benefit by
helping Obama obtain something he couldn’t otherwise afford." In
other words it was a payoff from a Chicago power player to an up and
coming politician for services yet to be rendered. Already the
ObamaMedia are circling the wagons on this story.
This past week
CBS carried water for Obama once again by refusing to release the
complete "hot mic" recording of his meeting with Democratic donors.

Obama Was A "Terrible Student" Not Good
Enough For Harvard
is reporting that Manhattan real estate mogul Donald Trump suggested
in an interview Monday that Barack Obama had been a poor student who did
not deserve to be admitted to the Ivy League universities he attended.
Trump, who is mulling a bid for the Republican presidential nomination,
offered no proof for his claim but said he would continue to press the
matter as he has the legitimacy of Obama's birth certificate.
"I heard he was a terrible student,
terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?
I'm thinking about it. I'm certainly looking into it.
Let him show his records."
Obama graduated from Columbia University in New
York in 1983 with a degree in political science after transferring from
Occidental College in California. He went on to Harvard Law
School, where he graduated magna cum laude 1991, and was the first black
president of the Harvard Law Review.
Obama's 2008 campaign did
not release his college transcripts, and in his best-selling memoir,
"Dreams From My Father," Obama indicated he hadn't always been an
academic star. Trump told the AP that Obama's refusal to release
his college grades were part of a pattern of concealing information
"I have friends who have smart sons with
great marks, great boards, great everything and they can't get into
Harvard. We don't know a thing about this guy. There are
a lot of questions that are unanswered about our president."
Katie Hogan, a spokeswoman for Obama's re-election
campaign, declined to comment.
Trump, a wealthy businessman and
reality TV host on NBC, has risen to the top of many polls in part by
his outspoken call for Obama to release his long form birth certificate.
The state of Hawaii has released a certificate of live birth
indicating Obama was born there on August 4, 1961, but that has not
quelled critics who believe Obama was born outside the United States and
is therefore not qualified to be president.
The so-called "Birther"
controversy has dominated the early stage of the 2012 GOP nominating
contest, with Trump leading the charge.
"I have more people that are excited about
the fact that I reinvigorated this whole issue. The last guy
(Obama) wants to run against is Donald Trump."
Trump is scheduled to travel to the early primary
states of New Hampshire and Nevada this week and said he will make a
final decision about a presidential bid by June.
