Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, and Rudy Giuliani, one of his main campaign surrogates, have both claimed that Trump believes President Obama was born in the U.S.
Giuliani, bizarrely, has even claimed that Trump came out and said he believes that Obama was born in the U.S. “two years ago, three years ago.”
That would be remarkable since as recently as earlier this year Trump vowed to write a “very successful” book outlining his birther conspiracy theory.
Indeed, Trump calls himself a “proud” birther and has regularly promoted the birther conspiracy theory on his Twitter feed, even implying that Obama had a government official killed as part of a cover-up of his supposedly fake birth certificate.
Trump has also embraced the advanced birther theory that Obama neither attended Columbia University nor authored “Dreams From My Father”:
How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived

“@obamafraudulent: @realDonaldTrump @d18mt2 The birth certificate that you forced Obama to show is a computer generated forgery.

Attention all hackers: You are hacking everything else so please hack Obama’s college records (destroyed?) and check “place of birth”

In his own words, @BarackObama “was born in Kenya, and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” This statement was made, (cont) http://t.co/nIsSypv9

When I was 18, people called me Donald Trump. When he was 18, @BarackObama was Barry Soweto. Weird.

“@futureicon: @pinksugar61 Obama also fabricated his own birth certificate after being pressured to produce one by @realDonaldTrump“

Do you believe Barack Hussein Obama (aka Barry Soetoro) looked like a president last night? I don’t!
