Trump, In Florida For RNC, Still Pushing Birtherism
Donald Trump says even though Romney said it was a joke, maybe it isn’t a joke.
“What I think doesn’t matter — he has his views and many other people disagree with him as you know,” Trump said. “…But he did make a joke, and some people thought it might not be a joke. It happens to be an issue that a lot of people believe in … many, many people believe in it so maybe I would have handled it differently, but he’s running for president and I’m with him 100 percent.”
Trump, who has focused on Obama’s birth certificate in the past, said that whether he raises the issue again going forward is an open question.
“Let’s just say this there’s a huge group of people that are not believers in what [Obama] did, what he said and where he came from. We’ll see what happens. Well see what happens over the coming weeks and months.”
