Any objective reporter or a reasonably sane person following the escapades of Obama understands that he went to school in Indonesia, speaks Arabic with no public denunciation of his Muslim Faith, Islam.
If Stephanopoulos were anything more than a “Has been talking head, he would find the answer.
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, “THIS WEEK” HOST: Let’s get into this controversy over the last couple of days.
I saw your tweets yesterday, you said you didn’t have a morally responsibility when that question came up about President Obama.
But this is getting a lot of attention in part because you have raised questions like this in the past.
So, for the record, was President Obama born in the United States? (NO)
Just one of hundreds of reconstructions available on his phony alleged long form birth certificate.
DONALD TRUMP: Well, you know, I don’t get into, George, I’m talking about jobs, military, I don’t get into it.
They asked the questions. Frankly, it’s no longer an interest to me. It’s something I don’t want to talk about. I want to talk about the vets and the military. I want to talk about jobs. I don’t get into that, George.
STEPHANOPOULOS The way to get behind it is answer yes or no.
See entire article below.
TRUMP: That’s possible, but I don’t talk about it.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Even though you raised questions and you investigated this in the past —
TRUMP: Well, people thought I should have defended the president in terms of the question that was asked the other night.
My attitude is, would he have done that for me? He’s been very capable of defending himself, believe me.
So, we’ll see what happens.
But I think the tweets really covered it cell.
I actually was very interested because I got in hot water for not saying anything.
First time it’s ever happened to me.
This is something where I didn’t even say anything.
STEPHANOPOULOS: I take that point.
But you raised these questions so often in the past, why can’t you say definitively yes or not?
You raised it many times. And he’s not a Muslim.
TRUMP: George, you have raised the question. I haven’t raised the question. I don’t talk about it. But I don’t talk other people’s faith. Not appropriate for me to talk about somebody else’s faith.
STEPHANOPOULOS The other big premise of that question, he said, Muslims are a problem many this country, do you agree?
TRUMP: In some cases, George, we can say no, and you can be politically correct and say everything’s wonderful. Certainly it’s a problem. And there’s a problem —
STEPHANOPOULOS What is the problem specifically?
TRUMP: At the same time, we have fabulous people living here, Muslims, and they have done fantastically well, but certainly it’s a problem.
You look around the world, it’s a problem. If I said no, not at all, people would laugh at me.
Now, it might be the right thing to say. I don’t care what the right thing to say is, but certainly what’s happening with some Muslims and, you know, terrorism and everything else, it seems pretty much confined there. It’s a problem.
We can say no, but it is.
