The swiftboating of Pres. Barack Obama is about to begin in earnest.
I wrote about Donald Trump becoming the Republican front man on birtherism for 2012 on Friday.
He off-handedly questioned President Obama’s birthplace last week – a comment that drew strong rebukes from some quarters – but now business mogul Donald Trump says he’s more concerned than ever that the president was, in fact, not born in the United States.
Trump – who, however improbably, claims to be considering a presidential bid – said Monday that since his first public statement on the issue last week, “a lot of facts are emerging” that are making him question more seriously where Obama was born. “I am really concerned,” Trump said during an appearance on Fox News. “You have no doctors, you have no nurses … that remember.”
“I brought it up just routinely, and all of the sudden a lot of facts are emerging, and I am starting to wonder myself whether he was born in this country,” he exclaimed.
But on Friday I also reported Sean Hannity teased a book by Jerome Corsi, due out in May, which is all about questioning Obama’s legitimacy as president. Today it’s confirmed.
