Obama Releases 'Long Form' Birth Certificate

longer text

The contention that Mr. Obama was not born in the United States, and therefore did not meet the constitutional requirement to be elected president, has been around for years and has long been refuted. But it recently gained more public attention after Mr. Trump, the real estate mogul, raised questions as he explored whether to run for president.

In a news conference Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump claimed credit for forcing Mr. Obama's hand, saying, "I feel I’ve accomplished something really, really important." But he said the document released Wednesday would have to be examined for authenticity.

"I hope it's the right deal," he said. "We have to look at it. A lot of people have to look at it. I hope it's true, and the reason I hope it's true is because we have real problems in this country."
