Skip to comments.Trump: 'Why Can't He Produce a Birth Certificate?'
Posted on 03/28/2011 7:58:34 AM PDT by Smokeyblue
Real estate mogul and potential 2012 presidential contender Donald Trump defended his questioning of President Obamas birth certificate Monday morning with a defiant, this guy either has a birth certificate or he doesnt.
I am really concerned, Trump said in a phone interview on Fox & Friends. You have no doctors that remember, you have no nurses -- this is the president of the United States -- that remember. He could have been born outside of this country. Why cant he produce a birth certificate?
Trump, who has been flirting with a run for president, first made a remark about the so-called birther issue last week on The View. Obama provided news organizations with a scan of his birth certificate during his 2008 campaign, which some oulets also independently vetted.
I brought it up just routinely, and now Im starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country, Trump said Monday.

Trump: 'Why Can't He Produce a Birth Certificate?' Billionaire, businessman, and
The Democrats made McCain present his long form birth certifice to the US Senate in 2008. Obama needs to do the same!
Here’s the vid:
I agree with Trump that Obama should release his long form birth certificate (did he even officially release his short form one, or did that just show up on a website without a chain of custody?), but arguing that the doctors and nurses don't remember is pretty weak. How many remember every birth they attended forty-some years ago? It's not like there was a star shining over the hospital and three wise men from the East dropped by with gifts to make the Birth of Obama more memorable than any other birth that day.
Why can’t (won’t) he produce college transcripts, high school and grade school records, or a detailed medical history (all of which we’ve seen from all other recent Presidents) either?
You need a BC to get a state id card. You need a BC to get a passport, but somehow it’s unreasonable to ask obama to produce his to sit in the Oval Office?
Someone in the hospital at the birth would have remembered the white mother, no father, and a black baby.
Mike Huckabee would disagree.
Keep the heat on him Donald. Thanks for taking on the fight.
Trump is carrying Hitlery’s jockstrap.
I don’t believe that Trump has any intention of running for President.. I believe his “questions” are part of a focused attack by members of the Democratic party. The want obama out of the White House, but at the same time do not want any direct(public) involvement in removing him, or accepting blame for allowing him to be in the office.
Wonder if he ever registered for the draft.
Doubtful but someone ought to ask.
Mike Who ?
“It’s not like there was a star shining over the hospital and three wise men from the East dropped by with gifts to make the Birth of Obama more memorable than any other birth that day.”
They didn’t? Somehow I’d gotten the impression during the 2008 campaign that perhaps they had and I simply hadn’t been paying attention...Admittedly, I was only 10 back in 1961, but only 2 years later, Kennedy got shot, and that I remember quite vividly.
Trump may be the only one with enough money & connections to force this issue. Glad someone has the guts to do it! FINALLY!
That's what O' supporters think...
Behind closed doors, the Obama Regime is scared to death of Trump.
And Trump is just getting started. I heard him go after the complete cover-up and hiding of the Obama (non-existent) academic and job history.
I do remember, back when he was first elected to the IL Senate, that there were news stories about the unlikely event and that he was from Kenya. A complete review of local IL papers and news in that time might turn up what I remember..I have not been able to find it. This was long before his national fame.
Donald, you just would not make a good President, but you do seem to be a good birther.
The birth announcement in the Honolulu paper at the time makes me think he was very likely born there. Is it possible his family could have manipulated that ad at the time? Sure, anything is possible. But it doesn’t seem very likely to me.
If they were so intent at the time to make it seem like he was born in the USA, then why go to Kenya to give birth in the first place?
The reason Trump says he is a really smart guy and wants to know where the BC is, he is tired of anyone asking, being called stupid or labeled Birther to be demeaned.
In Hawaii in 1961, how many black babies were born to white mothers? That alone would have made it likely that a doc or nurse would remember.
I like your analysis.The only other avenue I’d pursue is that the publicity hound in Trump is working with Soros MMFA to make the BC controversy the shouting point in the GOP primaries and make the party look like tin foil hat, black helicopter, conspiracy kooks. All this making an Obama second term look reasonable by contrast.
born June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York, NY (Meets the Jus Soli Requirement)
Frederick Christ Trump, born October 11, 1905 in Queens, NY, died June 1999 in Queens, NY
Mary Ann MacLeod, born May 10, 1912 in SCOTLAND, died August 7, 2000 in Queens, NY. Arrived in US October 5, 1935. Married January 1936. Naturalized as a US Citizen March 10, 1942.
Both parents were US Citizens at the time of his birth (Meets the Jus Sanguinis Requirement)
Donald Trump is a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN unlike Comrade Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama.
A white 18 year old girl giving birth to a black child in the early 1960's would be unusual, exceptionally so.
There is something there but I have no real idea what it is.
Maybe he doesn’t want anyone to know who his real Father is?
I can’t think of anything else but it is strange the way he is acting.
Oh come on!
All they had to do was send grandma down to the paper and she told them when and where he was born.
No need for any confirmation in the form of a birth certificate was required.
This was 1961? or sometime there about. All you had to do was tell the newspaper of the birth and they would put it in the paper.
It proves nothing.
Where is it????
Especially in 1961, when interracial marriage was still ILLEGAL in many states...
The reason he didn’t have to show a BC was because Pelousy already knew he didn’t meet the requirements so she covered it up. Also the vetting form for Hawaii is different than those for the rest of the states. All these small cracks are getting larger. Keep the pressure on there Trump!
“Trump may be the only one with enough money & connections to force this issue. Glad someone has the guts to do it! FINALLY!”
I think Trump should make up a list of ALL the missing docs on our mystery-man and put a price tag on each one...ie:
$10 million for the authentic ong form birth certif
$5 million for authentic application for Soc Security number
$5 million for authentic application for U.S. Passport
$5 million for each college application & grades
And you know this how? It is certainly not out of the realm of possibility. Wait a 100 years and see if history does not, in fact report that occurrence.
Hey Don, why don't you admit you are a shill for Hitlery instead of pretending you are a legitimate candidate for the Republican ticket?
Many parents here on FR have stated they needed to produce a BC to sign their children up for little league.
“Oh come on!
All they had to do was send grandma down to the paper and she told them when and where he was born.”
Ok, but that presupposes that it was very important to the family that Barack be seen as having been born in the US at the time. Well, if that’s the case, why go to Kenya to give birth in the first place? No one disputes that his parents met and got married in Hawaii. I just have a hard time thinking up a motive for any woman to decide “hey, I’ll go fly thousands of miles to give birth in some third world hospital instead of at a modern US hospital, but I want everyone to think I gave birth here, so I’ll make sure mom pulls the wool over the newspapers’ eyes.”
Whatever it takes, if that means Hillary in the White House, so be it, she is still 100 times better than the Usurper.
There are only 2 reasons to spend millions to hide your birth certificate:
1. You weren't born in this Country (enough said...case closed).
2. There is embarassing information on the BC. The only thing that could possibly be is another mother or father listed. But, with all the media's help, he could get out of that. They'll say "he can't choose his parents" "he is not lying, that is what his mom told him and that is what he believed" etc. etc. etc.
Which brings us back to only Option 1
And, Trump is much more likely to find a way to make money off of this issue than to spend money on this issue. It's more likely that he will find a way to collect donations to pursue the matter. He won't be spending much of his own money on a presidential election, either.
Let Trump be Trump.
I agree with you, to a point; furthermore who's to say they'd even still be alive today? A 40 year old ob/gyn in 1961 would be 90 this year.
Having said that, I think there's an interesting contemporary counterpoint in what's become a part of US folklore. In September 1961, a month after Obama's alleged birth, a mixed race couple named Barney & Betty Hill alleged to have had what's become an archetypal alien abduction experience. Now, putting aside one's personal opinions or views on that subject, the overwhelming majority of articles that discuss the incident mention how unusual a mixed-race couple was at that time, and how that fact alone contributed to their reluctance to have their story widely publicized.
Growing up in the '70s and '80s, I had a casual interest in the subject, and virtually everything I read about the Hills mentioned they were a mixed-race couple and how noteworthy that was in the early '60s. Now you could argue that perhaps Hawaii was a little more 'open-minded' about such matters, but I would still argue that a Kenyan exchange student father and a teen-aged mother would still tend to stand out from amont the other births...
It has been asked...MANY TIMES. Read all about it here.
“Whatever it takes, if that means Hillary in the White House, so be it, she is still 100 times better than the Usurper.”
The Usurper is so bad, Freepers may even start backing Romney or Gingrich.
A piece of shit in a gift wrapped box, is still a piece of shit.
The problem is there are no verified documents with any such names’ There is one official looking document with names but that one is from a birth in Kenya. No way to validate that document since the Keyan government has sealed any and all related info. Strange that two governments each with a high ranking relative would perform the same act as to one of the relatives. As for me it is also strange that Kenya closed the barn door about the same time that 2 ships with relief supplies were on ththe way, one of which was hijacked for a few days. Adding to coincidences is that Ralm Immanuel around the time took an African vacation with a side trip to Kenya. There are many dots to be connected as to Obama
