Trump: President Obama Born in the USA “Period”

There’s a new fight over an old issue on the presidential campaign trial.

FOX’s Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The Trump camp says the Republican now believes President Obama was born in the U.S. after he dodged a birther question from the “Washington Post”.

Democrat Hillary Clinton, speaking at a dinner in Washington last night, said Trump needs to stop the “ugliness”:

(Clinton) ”When you hear a President candidate spewing bigotry and hate, it’s easy to get discouraged.”

A statement from the Trump campaign claims that Clinton launched the “birther” movement during her unsuccessful primary run against Obama in 2008. Clinton has long denied that.
