Trump Still Won't Say President Obama Was Born In U.S.On Thursday evening, Donald Trump invited a reporter from The Washington Post on to his plane, and the reporter asked if Trump — a leading proponent of the falsehood that President Obama was born outside the U.S. — is now ready to acknowledge that Obama was born in Hawaii. He wasn’t. “I’ll answer that question at the right time,” Trump said. “I just don’t want to answer it yet.” His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, recently tried to put the “birther” issue behind the campaign, saying that Trump believes Obama was born in the U.S. When reminded of that, Trump responded: “It’s okay. She’s allowed to speak what she thinks. I want to focus on jobs. I want to focus on other things.” Thursday night, Trump’s campaign released a statement saying “Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States.”
