Washington (CNN) Self-proclaimed birther Donald Trump is now so doubtful of President Obama's birthplace that he's sent a team of his own investigators to Hawaii in hopes of getting to the bottom of the issue.
That's according to Trump himself, who, in an interview with NBC, warned his investigators just might uncover "one of the greatest cons in the history of politics and beyond."
"I have people that have been studying it and they cannot believe what they're finding," Trump said an interview that aired Thursday Morning.
Asked if he has assigned people specifically to search in Hawaii, Trump said, "Absolutely."
The business mogul, who in a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll is tied for second place among potential presidential candidates, also suggested the president is involved in an ongoing cover-up over the matter.
"He spent $2 million in legal fees trying on to get away from this issue, and if it weren't an issue, why wouldn't he just solve it?" he said. "I wish he would because if he doesn't, it's one of the greatest scams in the history of politics and in the history, period. You are not allowed to be a president if you're not born in this country. Right now, I have real doubts."

Imagine an America in which every bill signed by Obama, every nomination, and every “presidential” order from the usurper was repealed. America as a free, capitalist country - life would be glorious!
About time... I was wondering if any existed when it comes to politics...
Mark the tape.
They got bought off.
Would Lt Col Lakin get to kick 0bama in the nuts?
And will there be a YouTube of it?
“Self-proclaimed birther Donald Trump...”
First of all, he is not a “self-proclaimed birther”. He may be questioning the existence of a BC, but he’s stated that the term “birther” is pejorative and demeaning to those concerned about this issue.
You know, you’re probably right there...
Bill & Hill are not as ideological as they are simply greedy.
Interesting item in the passage above: It seems, according to the passage above, that "hospital where he was born took out ads in two Hawaiian newspapers in 1961 announcing the birth..."
Boy, was I surprised to read the above passage in the article, because all this time I was led to believe over the past two years that Obama's birth announcement in the two newspapers originated from the Department of Health and not the hospital of Obama's birth.
I guess one of us is confused: The author of the CNN article or me. Could someone help me here? That is, is the author of the CNN article correct when he says that the hospital where Obama was born is the one who sent Obama's birth announcement to the two newspapers? Thanks.
He would also hit paydirt if he investigated Obama’s school records. There’s probably some very interesting info there also. Names used, foreign student status, student loan records, grades - why focus just on Hawaii?
There is no such thing as a birther...just concerned US citizens.
The wars will have to wait, or the SEIU and William Ayers will have to take command. Hey, not a bad idea with a shutdown looming?
"MERIDITH...It's NOT...THE SAME...THING. It's a CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH. That is NOT a birth certificate. Not even close. A Certificate of Live Birth is not even signed, because nobody knows what it means. So far I am not convinced that he even HAS a real birth certificate."
Then Trump really went out on a limb and told her the Kenyan Grandma said he was born in Kenya and that she was there. I'm not kidding, half the time she was speechless and the other half her mouth was literally hanging open and she was doing the "But Donald..." thing. And I was LMAO...loved it!
You are right.
Conservatives have been too compliant in the tolerance of Liberals flaws ... not JUST Obamas defects... but, Conservatives have been overly broadminded about all deficiencies and even crimes where Liberal politicians and policies are concerned.
The MSM successfully bullies Conservatives into submission on this and on MANY issues where Liberals have clearly broken the rules or otherwise defrauded the public.
It is time for this to stop! There is a TWO party system in America and it is time to assess both parties by the same standards.
What makes you think they focused on Hawaii first? I think Trump has a little misdirection going on.
The basis for this claim eludes me. Do Hawaii hospitals take out ads?
I've long wondered why the O campaign put a muzzle on Granny. They must have been worried she would disclose something they did not want disclosed.
I actually think it would be a huge issue.
If he wasn’t eligible, then it brings down all the executive orders, signed legislation, Supreme Court Appointments, his little Libya war and revolutions in the Middle East...should make it all null and void.
Two, it brings down the democrat party. Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Dean etc. The whole darn democrat machine gets stopped. Their candidate and not properly vetted? Don’t believe it for a second.
Three, potentially puts a republican in the White House, before 2012. Not the best republican, but damage control really can start.
Sorry, America was neither "free" nor "Capitalist" under Bush and Republican "leadership".
Hillary is already on the case. Where do you think The Donald is getting his "facts"? He's simply carrying water for Hillary. She knew the economy was taking a nosedive, and simply sidestepped the chaos for 4 years so Obama could take the fall, and she will bat clean up in 2012.
Look at The Donald's campaign contributions. Mostly liberal Democrats. Including Hillary's presidential campaign.
Probably has an army of investigators in other parts of the world; Kenya comes to mind...
I think the actual question is: "Will he uncover what the governor of Hawaii has covered up so well?"
