And now Donald Trump is claiming all the credit. "I've accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish," he said this morning on his campaign tour of New Hampshire.
In recent weeks, Trump has repeatedly claimed doubt in Obama's actual citizenship, and even said he sent investigators to Hawaii to research official records.
But today's verifying revelation returns the ball to Trump's side of the net.
In an April 19 interview on Good Morning America, Trump stated hesitancy to release his own tax records. When questioned further by George Stephanopoulos, he replied, "Maybe I'm going to do the tax returns when Obama does his birth certificate...I'd love to give my tax returns. I may tie my tax returns into Obama's birth certificate."
Well, Donald, we want to see them. You got the documents you kept whining for, so now you have to return the gesture, just like you said you would on national television.
