Trump Keeps Doubting Obama Citizenship

In an interview on Fox and Friends, Donald Trump continues to question whether President Obama is a natural born citizen of the United States.

Said Trump: "They give you a certificate of live birth which anybody can get. Just walk into the hospital. This guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn't. I didn't think it was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it is turning out to be a very big deal. People are calling me from all over saying please don't give up on this issue. If you weren't born in this country, you cannot be President. You have no doctors that remember, you have no nurses -- this is the President of the United States -- that remember. Why can't he produce a birth certificate? I brought it up just routinely, and all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and I'm starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country?"

He also doubted Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie's (D) claim that he remembers when President Obama was born.

Trump: "I doubt it. I think this guy should be investigated. He remembers when Obama was born, give me a break. He is just trying to do something for his party."
