NBC News: Trump Resurrects Birther Issue;

Donald Trump sat down with Obama's NBC News' Katy Tur and was asked why people should believe his numbers on illegal immigration when he led the birther movement and sent investigators out to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was not born here. Watch Tur press Trump over the issue pleading that Obama released his birth certificate.

Trump fired back:

Trump’s return to ‘birtherism’ – and of course his repeated condemnation of undocumented immigrants – signals that the real estate mogul turned presidential candidate isn’t likely to shy from the bombastic style that’s helped him dominate headlines in recent weeks and fueled his rising poll numbers. [...] MSNBC.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews now can rest easy being he reported Obama was born in Indonesia...
