Obama has a birthplace

leave a comment »

Today President Barack Obama released his official Hawaii birth certificate. This ends the battle of the birther movement stating that he was not born in Hawaii but in Kenya, where his father is from. Obama held a press conference this morning and talked about the reasons why he released it now and never before. It was because he thought it was becoming a distraction for the upcoming Presidential Election. Since, some of the potential Republican candidates were focusing on this issue and making it more important than other issues the country is facing. Especially one person in particular, Donald Trump. Who has made his mission as of late to prove that the President was not born in America.  And this morning in his own way of making everything about the “Donald” he took credit for making Obama release his birth certificate. Now that it is official, we can all stop worrying about if Obama was born in the U.S. or not and move on to more important issues, like the royal wedding.
