Donald Trump Doubles Down On Birther Remarks

The Donald made sure to remind everyone that he's still a birther during an interview on MSNBC this Tuesday.

The Donald made sure to remind everyone that he's still a birther during an interview on MSNBC this Tuesday. Here's how he responded to their reporter, Katy Tur following up on his remarks about winning the Latino vote, and why anyone should believe his numbers when he was out there questioning whether the President of the United States was really born in America.

TUR: You led the birther movement. You sent investigators out to Hawaii to find out whether or not Obama, which you said, was not born here (crosstalk)

TRUMP: Well I don't know. According to you it's not true.

TUR: He released his birth certificate.

TRUMP: You know, if you believe that, that's fine. I don't care. It's an old subject. I'm about jobs. I'm about security. I'm about fixing the military. I'm about taking care of our vets. I'm about things... you don't have to bring up old subjects. Whether he did or not, who knows. A lot of people don't agree with you on that by the way. But I'm really about economic development and I'm about jobs and that's what we have to start talking about.

Nothing like calling it an old subject and then doubling down. I look forward to Trump continuing to help the GOP with that minority outreach program of theirs.

I think Trump is still smarting from the butt kicking President Obama gave him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner back in 2011.
