Donald Trump A Semi-Birther

Posted by | March 17, 2011 10:20 | Filed under: Top Stories

Besides saying he’d spend $600 million of his own money to run for president, Donald Trump told ABC’s Ashleigh Banfield he has a little bit of doubt about where President Obama was born.

Speaking about the president, Trump – in line with “birthers” who question the president’s citizenship – said he, too, had his doubts that Obama was born in the U.S.

“Everybody that even gives a hint of being a birther … even a little bit of a hint, like, gee, you know, maybe, just maybe this much of a chance, they label them as an idiot. Let me tell you, I’m a really smart guy,” he said.

Trump’s explanation?

“He grew up and nobody knew him. You know? When you interview people, if ever I got the nomination, if I ever decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They’ll remember me. Nobody ever comes forward. Nobody knows who he his until later in his life. It’s very strange. The whole thing is very strange,” he added.

Trump also said if he were president he’d order surgical strikes on Libya, Sarah Palin is “an amazing woman” who is “underrated” and more qualified to be president than Barack Obama was when he was elected. Oh, and he told Brooke Mueller’s parents, “don’t let your daughter marry” Charlie Sheen.
