Obama Releases Birth Certificate

The White House released President Obama's original "Certificate of Live Birth" from Hawaii amid persistent questions about the president's citizenship, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The White House said Hawaii doesn't generally release long-form birth certificates but did so at the president's request.

According to NBC News, Obama said he had "watched with bemusement" and been "puzzled" by the degree to which the issue of his place of birth has continued to make headlines.

Said Obama: "I'm confident the American people and America's political leaders can come together in a bipartisan way and solve these problems. We're not gonna be able to solve our problems if we get distracted by sideshows and carnival barkers."

At his own news conference, Donald Trump took credit for the action.
