Republican nominee Donald Trump ends the charade. He admits that Barack Obama, the nation's first Black president is "indeed" born in the United States. This put away a long standing controversy sparked by people who refuse to acknowledge the legitimacy of the first Black president.
"President Obama was born in the United States, period," said Trump on Friday. "Now we all want to get back to making America strong and great again."
Trump for five years taunted the notion that Obama wasn't really born in the United States.
He threatened to sue the president for his real birth certificate.
In April 2011, Obama released his long form birth certificate to silence Trump and kookspiracy nuts who pestered him with the notion that he's not being transparent.
Now who he blames for the birther kookspiracy is his rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump's claim that Clinton started the birther movement is roundly debunked. But it hasn't stopped the Trump campaign, internet creeper Matt Drudge, Sean "Softball" Hannity and Old Fart Rush Limbaugh from blaming her for the birther nonsense.
Clinton slammed Trump for the birther nonsense.
"Trump was asked one more time where was President Obama born, and he still wouldn't say Hawaii. He still wouldn't say America," Clinton said to the crowd of mostly Latinos.
"This man wants to be our next president? When will he stop this ugliness, this bigotry? Now, he's tried to reset himself and his campaign many times. This is the best he can do. This is who he is."
