Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, on Friday called on her rival of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, to repudiate his own history of questioning President Barack Obama’s nationality.
Trump, a New York billionaire with little previous political participation, has long encouraged the “birther’’ movement that arose during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, questioning whether he was born in the U.S. Clinton, in a Washington speech, said that Trump’s campaign was founded on this outrageous lie, saying there was no erasing from the history.
Obama was born in Hawaii; his mother was a Kansas native married to a foreign student from Kenya. “Barack Obama was born in America, plain and simple, while Donald Trump owes him and the American people an apology,’’ Clinton said. However, Trump too, was due to speak on the issue in Washington.
