Trump Questions Obama’s Eligibility in NY Times

Billionaire and potential presidential candidate Donald Trump recently published his doubts about Obama’s eligibility to be president in the opinion section of the New York Times after being attacked by one of the Times columnists for his viewpoint on the controversy. The NY Times has been one of Obama’s strongest, most unquestioning supporters since he first became a candidate.

Trump succinctly summarizes two major issues regarding Obama’s eligibility under the constitutional requirement that the president be a “natural born” citizen, including statements by Obama’s grandmother that she attended his birth–in Kenya–and the fact that no hospital in Hawaii claims he was born there, and “no bills, no doctors’ names, no nurses’ names, no registrations, no payments, etc.” exist to show he was.  

 Trump has become concerned enough about Obama’s refusal to provide proof of his eligibility (and suspicious as to why he has spent $2 million to fight lawsuits and keep his documents secret from the public) that he has sent investigators to search for proof of eligibility, especially to Hawaii. 

So far what his investigators have found or not found has given him serious doubts about Obama’s eligibility, and he says, suggests that there is reason to suspect that Obama is not constitutionally eligible to be president. At this point the investigation is ongoing. What is ultimately found may either prove the American public has been witness to a great political scam or may finally prove his eligibility and put the matter to rest.
