NEWSMAX.COM – Donald Trump is calling on President Barack Obama to produce his birth certificate and end speculation he was born outside the United States.

“I want him to show his birth certificate. I want him to show his birth certificate,” Trump said on ABC’s “The View.” “There’s something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”

Trump said he believe Obama “probably” was born in the United States but repeated questions he raised last week about the president’s childhood, CNN reported.

“If you go back to my first grade, my kindergarten, people remember me. Nobody from those early years remembers him,” Trump said. “If you’re going to be president of the United States, it says very profoundly you have to be born in this country.”

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie, a friend of Obama’s parents in Hawaii who said he remembers when the future president was born, first vowed to produce an original copy of the president’s birth certificate this year.

But he abandoned those efforts because it is against state law to release private documents, CNN quoted his spokeswoman as saying.

Until now, the president’s representatives have depended on a certification of live birth that reported his birthplace as Honolulu, Hawaii.

The certification of live birth is a summary of the birth certificate’s details, but does not include information typically found in the full certificate, such as place of birth and attending physician.
