Finally President Obama Releases his Long Form Birth Certificate Donald Trump Takes Credit For Release

It it’s finally over President Barack Obama presented his long for birth certificate Wednesday. This comes after Donald Trump haranguing for the last three weeks. From Fox News:

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air Monday, May 2nd, the daytime host asked President Obama why he released his birth certificate now. The president explained that in these serious times, “we can’t be distracted by sideshows”.

The President told the TV host that while he was dealing with the budget debate, “the biggest news was this birth certificate thing.”

And so he was prompted to release the long form of his birth certificate, to put the “silliness” to rest. President Obama released a “certificate of live birth” during his 2008 race for presidency. But the so-called “birther” movement developed when critics of the now-president questioned his citizenship.

The silliness began when Hillary Rhodham Clinton  presidential campaign was looking into then Senator Obama records and believed that he was not born in the  US.  That in-turn  launched the so-called birther movement. A conspiracy theory  which some on the far right leaped on when Obama was elected President in November 2,2008.
Many in the African-American community felt that the birther movement was racially motivated. But in truth, Democrats did the same thing to Sen. John McCain(R-AZ) saying that because McCain was born in US Canal Zone in Panama he wasn’t a citizen. The excuse by the Left was the Panama Canal was returned to Republic of Panama  in 1979 by then President Jimmy Carter.
Billionaire Donald Trump claimed a victory of sorts. From Real Clear Politics:

I’m taking great credit and you have to ask the president, ‘why didn’t he do this a long time ago? Why didn’t he do it a long time ago?’

By engaging the White House in releasing the document  this show that Trump has leadership skills that the president is sorely lacking.
