ADMIRED HIS BRASH CANDOR. HE SPEAKS WHAT HE SINCERELY BELIEVES.
Recently I saw him on TV in an interview in which he said that he did not believe that Barack Hussein Obama is qualified to be POTUS by reason of his lack of citizenship. Evidently one of the writers of the NYT wrote an article ridiculing Trump as a "birther." I love Trump's response in a letter that appeared in the NYT.
All during the election campaign in 2008 I raised objections to the Obama candidacy in the postscript that you can read below Trump's letter. I believed what I wrote then and I believe it now.
Barack Hussein Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States and therefore is not qualified to be POTUS. The greatest fraud ever perpetrated on the people of the United States has been perpetrated. As Trump suggests, some enterprising journalist should earn a Pulitzer Prize by exposing the fraud.

Donald Trump Responds
To the Editor:
Re “Donald Trump Gets Weirder,” by Gail Collins (column, April 2):
Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers), is not at a very high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong!
As far as her comments on the so-called “birther” issue, I don't need Ms. Collins's advice. There is a very large segment of our society who believe that Barack Obama, indeed, was not born in the United States. His grandmother from Kenya stated, on tape, that he was born in Kenya and she was there to watch the birth. His family in Honolulu is fighting over which hospital in Hawaii he was born in-they just don't know.
He has not been able to produce a “birth certificate” but merely a totally unsigned “certificate of live birth”-which is totally different and of very little significance. Unlike a birth certificate, a certificate of live birth is very easy to obtain. Equally of importance, there are no records in Hawaii that a Barack Hussein Obama was born there-no bills, no doctors names, no nurses names, no registrations, no payments, etc. As far as the two notices placed in newspapers, many things could have happened, but some feel the grandparents put an ad in order to show that he was a citizen of the U.S. with all of the benefits thereto. Everybody, after all, and especially then, wanted to be a United States citizen.
The term used by Ms. Collins-“birther”-is very derogatory and is meant in a derogatory way. Had this been George Bush or almost any other President or Presidential aspirant, they would never have been allowed to attain office, or would have been thrown out of office very quickly.
For some reason, the press protects President Obama beyond anything or anyone I have ever seen. What they don't realize is that if he was not born in the United States, they would have uncovered the greatest "scam" in the history of our country. In other words, they would become the hottest writer since Watergate, or beyond.
Open your eyes, Gail, there's at least a good chance that Barack Hussein Obama has made mincemeat out of our great and cherished Constitution!
DONALD J. TRUMP
New York, April 7, 2011

NEW YORK, April 11, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Donald Trump has played many roles during his years in the public eye - business magnate, beauty pageant owner, reality TV show host - but few performances have received as much attention as his potential bid to fight Obama for the presidency on the GOP ticket.
Trump now rides a surprising wave of popularity, landing a weekly appearance on Fox News as he rises in the polls on a platform focused on challenging President Obama’s claim to be a natural-born American citizen. In states such as New Hampshire, Trump has been shown to draw significant support away from 2012 hopeful Mitt Romney, a frontrunner for the GOP ticket. In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, Trump was second behind Romney and tied with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
Despite professing support for abortion for decades, the New York tycoon has now claimed that he experienced a conversion on the issue “a number of years ago.”
“One thing about me, I’m a very honorable guy, okay? And I’m pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago,” Trump told Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody last week.
Trump said that “one of the primary reasons” he changed was from hearing the story of a friend who didn’t want a baby but chose to keep it. “He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye. It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him. And you know here’s a baby that wasn’t going to be let into life,” he said. “And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life.”
However, as late as 2007, Trump endorsed top pro-abortion personality Hillary Clinton as well as pro-abortion former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the Democrat and Republican 2008 presidential tickets, saying that they “both would do a good job.”
“I know them, Rudy and Hillary. I think you really have some good candidates,” Trump said in a Larry King Live interview October 15, 2007.
Trump’s donation record is all over the board, with small donations going to pro-life Republicans such as 2008 GOP presidential candidate John McCain, Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, and George W. Bush, as well as pro-abortion Democrats such as Hillary Clinton, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, and Senate leader Harry Reid.
The New York Times reported in February that Trump also gave former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, another 100% pro-abortion rated politician, $50,000 for his successful mayoral bid in Chicago.
Politicians familiar with Trump say that his flashy and aggressive campaign makes sense for the flamboyant financier - but not because he’s serious about his political views.
“I know Donald a long time. I never take him seriously. I don’t think he’s a serious candidate,” former Staten Island Congressman Guy Molinari told the New York Post.
Even New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie, a GOP cult favorite for 2012 despite repeatedly stating he wouldn’t run, gently dismissed Trump’s campaign as being of a piece with his publicity-hungry personality.
“Donald’s a really good friend of mine. I don’t know that Donald really wants to be president,” said Christie in an ABC News interview. “I’ll believe it when I see it. ... He’s very outspoken, and he loves to be on the stage and to express his opinions.”
BARRY SOETORO aka BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
He is not eligible to be
President of the United States
because he is not a Natural Born Citizen
as required by Article Two, Section One, Clause Five of the United States Constitution.
This is a fact REGARDLESS of
where he was born (Mombassa, Hawaii, Chicago, Mecca or Mars).
He is not eligible
because he was not born of
BOTH OF WHOM WERE UNITED STATES CITIZENS
AT THE TIME OF HIS BIRTH
as required by the Constitution.
Barack Hussein Obama Jr. is not eligible to be President of the United States because – according to public admissions made by him – his “birth status was governed” by the United Kingdom. Obama further admits he was a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies at birth.
Since Barack Hussein Obama Jr. was, if born in the state of Hawaii, a dual citizen, who – according to his own State Department – owed allegiance to the Queen of England and United Kingdom at the time of his birth – he cannot therefore be a “natural born” citizen of the US according to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the US Constitution.
His father, who did not live in the United States for more than a couple of years, was a subject/ciitizen
of Kenya/Great Britain at the time of Barack’s birth and afterwards, AND further, as Barack himself admitted on his website during the 2008 campaign, Barack was therefore born SUBJECT TO THE GOVERNANCE OF GREAT BRITAIN.
Here is a direct quote from Obama's "Fight the Smears/Fact Check" 2008 website:
‘When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children…’ “
The FACT that he was not born of TWO US CITIZEN PARENTS is all that matters. The question of his birth certificate is a distraction (a distraction fostered by Obama’s supporters?) that ought not to occupy our time and resources. BUT if you are really convinced of the value of the COLB (certificate of live birth) that Obama posted on his website, see this:
Also, it is possible that he is not a United States
citizen at all through his mother if he was born in Kenya, as three witnesses have testified. The reason is because his mother could not pass her US citizenship on to her son because she did not live continuously in the United States for five full years after her fourteenth birthday as required by the US immigration law in effect during that period of time.

Also, an excellent introductory primer on Obama Presiidential Eligibility is to be found at:
His usurpation can only be corrected (1) by Congress through his Impeachment and Removal [something which will never happen in a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid], or (2) it can be
corrected by his resignation, which could happen if the public presssure on him to resign becomes great enough, or (3) by his removal by the United States Supreme Court affirming a Quo Warranto decision of the United States Federal District Court for the District of Columbia [which process Attorney General Eric Holder would never allow to even begin] or (4) by an amendment to the Constitution,
which will never happen because that again would require the agreement of a Congress controlled by Pelosi/Reid.
HERE IS THE QUESTION WHICH EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN SHOULD BE ASKING HIS OR HER CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS
“During the 2008 election, then Senator Obama published a statement at his website which said that his birth status was ‘governed’ by the British Nationality Act of 1948. Can you please tell me, and the American people, how a person governed - at birth - by British law, can be a natural born citizen of the United States and thus constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States?”

And if you really want to understand why it is necessary for a man to be a natural born citizen of the United States in order to be President of the United States, read the essay by Leo Donofrio at:
And if you did not know that in additional to Obama being ineligible to be president because of his nationality, did you know that he is a Muslim:
