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."

Why did he wait so long to do this?
He sure is stirring up a pot of poo over this one isn’t he?
Grab the popcorn ladies and gentlemen, this could get good.
I’m not a fan of this being a major political topic with so many other failings out in the open. However, it’ll be interesting to hear what “The Donald” finds ...
If he finds something that Slick Willie and the Hildebeast missed, they’re gonna have coronaries.
Take a good look at what a REAL New Yorker is like!
Taking no sh*t from Obama!
What a fun interview!
Availability of viable information?
I’m sure the Donald never asks a question he doesn’t know the answer to.
At this moment, the Saudis, Libyans, Jordanians, Russians, Chinese, Japanese, South Korean, and Vatican diplomats are flying to Hawaii to hand off records to “Trump’s People”, since the same information they have been sending to Eric Holder has been shredded.
I’m sure the interview was rife with ad hominems and no actual refutation of Trump’s assertions.
Well, no one else would even bring up the issue . . . neither Rush, Hannity, Beck, Malkin, Coulter . . . NONE OF THEM until now, and then they kinda' refer to it briefly . . . I'm so disgusted with our conservative voices for having ignored this issue as if they've been threatened with death or something.
I hope "the Donald" has used his billions to surround himself with body guards at every step.
He needs to stay away from parks after dark, lest the Zero put Hillary on the case and The Donald gets himself Fostered.
What about the state legislators?
It seems they go right up to the wire on eligibility requirements, then bail out.
What will he uncover that the Governor of Hawaii could not?
Translation... Trump is doing what we( the media and press) should have done a long time ago, but ignored because we love Obama.
My bet is Trump already has all the goods and this “team of investigators” is now re-playing everything in front of the media. The “investigators” will know EXACTLY where to go for info as it has been gleaned once already..
Wow. And this is from CNN.
Go Trump, go — that’s all I can say.
If this is for real, I’ll eat my hat.
Similar to when the DNC sent investigators to Alaska in 2008.
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?"
Oh yeah, and he also told Meredith BO has been a horrible president. She loved that. :-)
truthkeeper you are right the interview was a blast! I am skeptical too but man he was hitting the nail on the head re:Obama on issue after issue. Viera was practicallly whining trying to get him to say nice things about Obama. Did she or anyone in MSM ever try to interrupt a Democrat with “say something positive about Prez Bush”?
the research has already been done on this by many on this Forum and elsewhere. All Trump has to do is listen to it.
Any reasonable human being upon listening to the information on this would come to the conclusion that something is awry with this president’s background.
The BC is a smoking gun. The other rumors, that he never really attended Occidental College, got in at Harvard through the Saudis, the Social Security number from CT and elsewhere....his name changes....
Everything hints that there was wide scale fraud in this guys background.
Then comes the final corker, being that he is NOT a natural born citizen with our without the BC since his father was not a citizen here.
Trump, knows the end game. He’s planting seeds along the way, so the American people, who are slow to accept this kind of thing unless it’s presented sensationally, will buy into it.
Watch the polls.
I wouldn’t call myself a birther, but I always wondered why he wouldn’t merely show his birth certificate. It would end all controversy, unless he is doing this to try to make conservatives look crazy until he one day produces it. I think it will be interesting for sure to see what Donald finds. He certainly has the money and tools to investigate this. Either way, this issue might be put to bed once and for all.
Just doing the work the MSM won’t do.
We were not perfect then, but we were a whole lot closer. I'm hoping that we can get from here to where we need to be without the productive third of society going Galt to make the parasites and looters understand their responsibility to support themselves. [BTW, I have nearly gone Galt, by choice, including now a 95% cut from my previous income. I am not willing to support the socialists beyond a bare minimum level, and I'm rethinking even that level.]
Wow, I wasn’t aware that ONLY a hospital could post birth announcements. You learn something new every day... Silly me, when my child was born the hospital had no interest in posting an announcement, I had to do it all by myself.
I guess when you have nothing to lose you can speak this way.
