During an interview with Columbus, OH’s ABC6/FOX28 WSYX/WTTE on Wednesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that he changed his position on President Obama’s place of birth because “I just wanted to get on with — we want to get on with the campaign. A lot of people were asking me questions…we really wanted to get just back onto the subject of jobs, military, taking care of our vets, etc.”

A lot of people were asking me questions, and we want to talk about jobs. We want to talk about the military. We want to talk about ISIS and how to get rid of ISIS.
