Trump: Hillary ‘Started the Birther Movement’

Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump accused Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of starting the birther movement against President Obama during an interview broadcast on Wednesday’s edition of CNN’s “Situation Room.”

Trump stated, “Do you know who started the birther movement? Do you know who started it? Do you know who questioned his birth certificate, one of the first? Hillary Clinton. She’s the one that started it. She brought it up years before it was brought up by me.”

When asked where he stands on the birther issue, Trump said he doesn’t talk about it anymore, but that he would “raise it against” Hillary.
