WATCH | Donald Trump on Friday at an event honoring veterans went back on his "birther" comments.
President Obama said he was confident about where he was born.
Donald Trump's campaign on Thursday released a letter suggesting the Republican candidate now believes President Barack Obama was born in the United States.
"Having successfully obtained President Obama's birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States," said Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications adviser.
Trump has not publicly admitted this claim, but he is expected to comment on the issue at an event this afternoon in Washington, D.C.
This is the statement the Trump campaign released in an attempt to bury the 'birther' claims.
Did Hillary Clinton start the Birther movement? This is false.
The other part of the campaign letter claimed Hillary Clinton's '08 campaign, "first raised this issue to smear then-candidate Barack Obama in her very nasty, failed 2008 campaign for President."
Clinton speaking to The Black Women's Agenda Symposium in Washington, D.C., Friday said Trump "has led the birther movement to delegitimize our first black president."
Clinton struck back on Thursday, saying Trump is the true leader and needs to apologize.
President Obama’s successor cannot and will not be the man who led the racist birther movement. Period.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 16, 2016
Clinton tweeted this on Thursday after the letter went out.
In 2011, Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets questioning Obama's birth certificate.
How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 12, 2013
