Donald Trump Still Not Convinced Obama’s Birth Certificate Is Real

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Real estate developer and reality TV host Donald Trump told a group of conservatives Friday that he questions whether President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is real, resurrecting an old conspiracy theory that many Americans viewed as the low point of the 2008 presidential election.

Near the end of a speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump, a potential longshot 2016 presidential candidate, was asked about his years-long efforts to gain access to Obama’s college records. But instead of sticking to the topic of the president’s university transcripts, Trump took the opportunity to question, yet again, whether Obama was born in the United States.

Santorum’s joke was also met with silence.
