Donald Trump: ‘President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Period.’

Donald Trump finally acknowledged Friday that “President Barack Obama was born in the United States,” reversing himself on the issue that propelled him into national politics. Hillary Clinton said earlier Friday that Trump must apologize for his role in furthering the “birther” conspiracy. “For five years he has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president,” Clintons said at an event in Washington.

“His campaign was founded on this outrageous lie.”
