Trumped? White House releases President Obama’s birth certificate

Collin County is talking over coffee on Wednesday morning about President Barack Obama and “Celebrity Apprentice” TV showman Donald Trump after the White House released President Obama’s Certificate of Live Birth on Wednesday.

Donald Trump, who asked President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate, said in New Hampshire on Wednesday: “I feel I’ve accomplished something really really important, and I’m honored by it.”

“We’re “going to look at it. We have to see if it’s real, if it’s proper,” Trump said, adding he is “sure it’s the right deal.”

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said in a statement: “The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good T.V., but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country.”

President Obama made a statement but did not take questions from the press on Wednesday.
