Team Trump: Hillary's Campaign Started the Obama Birther Nonsense
The Washington Post ambushed Donald Trump -- demanding he reveal whether he believes President Obama was born in America. The Mainstream Media just can't let go of this birther nonsense.
Hillary Clinton mentioned the Post story during her remarks at a campaign stop in Washington, D.C.
"He was asked one more time, where was President Obama born? And he still wouldn't say Hawaii," she said. "He still wouldn't say America."
"When will he stop this ugliness - this bigotry," she added.
So the Trump campaign released a brilliant retort Thursday night. It's spectacular!
Here are the nuggets:
1. Hillary Clinton's campaign first raised the birth certificate issue.
2. Trump believes Obama was born in America.
Following is the Trump campaign's full statement:
"Hillary Clinton’s campaign first raised this issue to smear then-candidate Barack Obama in her very nasty, failed 2008 campaign for President. This type of vicious and conniving behavior is straight from the Clinton Playbook. As usual, however, Hillary Clinton was too weak to get an answer. Even the MSNBC show Morning Joe admits that it was Clinton’s henchmen who first raised this issue, not Donald J. Trump.
In 2011, Mr. Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate. Mr. Trump did a great service to the President and the country by bringing closure to the issue that Hillary Clinton and her team first raised. Inarguably, Donald J. Trump is a closer. Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States.
Mr. Trump is now totally focused on bringing jobs back to America, defeating radical Islamic terrorism, taking care of our veterans, introducing school choice opportunities and rebuilding and making our inner cities safe again." – Jason Miller, Senior Communications Advisor.
