The birth certificate shows conclusively that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is signed by state officials and his mother. The White House communications director, Dan Pfeiffer on Apr 27 stated in its website, "The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn't good for the country."
"It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country," added the White House spokesperson.
However, during his press conference, Obama bashed his critics, especially Donald Trump as the President stated, "I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest."
"But I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve," added Obama.
The controversy regarding Obama's presidential eligibility was again fueled up when the real estate mogul Trump raised questions about Obama's birth place.
"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 its true is because we have real problems in this country," stated Trump.
Recently, Trump had questioned about Obama's academic career also as he asserted, "I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard? I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."
