President Obama Responds To Birther Claim
Over the past few weeks, the allegations of President Obama not being a US citizen has gained steam from Donald Trump, who also says he making a run for the White House in 2012.
This past Friday, the President sat down in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos and responded to the allegations:
“I think that over the last two and a half years there’s been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election where most people feel pretty confident the President was born where he says he was, in Hawaii. He doesn’t have horns … we’re not really worrying about conspiracy theories or birth certificates … The vast majority of Americans across the country — Democratic or Republican — really want this election to be about growing the economy, getting control of the deficit, preparing the future for our kids. And my suspicion is that anybody who is not addressing those questions is going to be in trouble. I think they may get a quick pop in the news. They may get a lot of attention. But ultimately, the American people understand this is a serious, sober time.”
