Billionaire developer and possible Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is now suggesting Barack Obama’s presidency could be “illegal” if legitimate proof is not provided demonstrating the commander in chief is indeed a “natural born citizen” of the U.S.
Trump’s use of the “I” word came last night during a phone interview with Greta Van Susteren of the Fox News Channel.
“To be honest with you, I want him to have a birth certificate,” Trump said, “because [otherwise] that would mean that his presidency was, I guess you’d have to say, illegal. You have to be born in the United States. I hope that he was born in the United States. I hope – but I want to get rid of the word hope, I want to know for sure – I hope that he was born in the United States and I hope this doesn’t become a big issue.”
