The White House finally released the original long-form of President Obama’s birth certificate Wednesday, putting an end to the rumors that he was not born in the United States. The President spoke at an exclusive press conference at the White House saying:
“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” Obama told reporters at the White House.
“I’ve been puzzled at the degree to which this (story) just kept on going. Normally I would not comment on something like this, But the country has “some enormous challenges out there” and that it will not be able to effectively meet “if we’re distracted. We’re not going to be able to (meet those challenges) if we spend time vilifying each other. We’re not going to be able to do it if we just make stuff up and pretend that facts are not facts. We’re not going to be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers.” [ SOURCE ]
Donald Trump, who has been talking to numerous media outlets about the validity of the birth certificate said this:
Following the White House’s release of the long-form certificate, Trump told reporters in New Hampshire that he is “very proud” of himself for helping to bring about the release of the document.
“I’ve accomplished something nobody else was able to accomplish,” Trump said. “I’d want to look at (the birth certificate), but I hope it’s true so that we can get on to much more important matters.” [ SOURCE ]
