Trump: ‘I Don’t Talk About’ About Where Obama Was Born ‘Anymore’

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump stated he doesn’t “talk about it anymore” when asked whether President Obama was born in the US on Tuesday’s broadcast of CBS’ “The Late Show.”

Host Stephen Colbert said he was throwing Trump a “big, fat meatball” for him to “hit out of the park” before he asked, “Barack Obama, born in the United States, was he?”

Trump answered, “I don’t talk about it anymore. I talk about jobs. I talk about our veterans being horribly treated. I just don’t discuss it anymore.”

After Colbert said, “that meatball is now being dragged down the steps of the subway by a rat.” Trump continued, “I’m talking about jobs. I’m talking about the vets who are treated like third-class citizens. They’re treated worse than the illegals. I mean, the vets of this country are so mistreated, terribly. I’m talking about the military, building it up. Those are the things I’m talking about. I’m not talking about that.”
