Trump forced to explain Birther stance, offers no apologies ‘I say nothing’ to the black community

As a wrap up to Lester Holt’s section of the first presidential debate on race, the NBC moderator challenged Donald Trump on his longstanding accusation that President Obama was not a U.S. citizen, he was born in Kenya and should not be president. Of course, deep into the 2016 race and Trump has recanted his outlandish opposition.

Holt asks “Can you tell us what took you so long?”

“When I got involved, I didn’t fail. I got him to give the birth certificate. So I’m satisfied with it…But I was the one that got him to produce the birth certificate. And I think I did a good job.” Trump stated, later offering no humility.

“I say nothing. I say nothing, because I was able to get him to produce it. He should have produced it a long time before. I say nothing…But let me just tell you. When you talk about healing, I think that I’ve developed very, very good relationships over the last little while with the African-American community. I think you can see that….

“And I feel that they really wanted me to come to that conclusion. And I think I did a great job and a great service not only for the country, but even for the president, in getting him to produce his birth certificate.”
