Off-Topic: Motherboard: Almost Every Word of Donald Trump's Birther Statement
Is a Lie
Indeed, virtually every line of the statement is a lie.
Hillary Clinton did not allege that the president was born in
Kenya. Trump did not compel Obama to release his birth
certificate "when others had not"--Obama had already released
a copy of his birth certificate, but critics, including Trump,
believed it to be a fake. So Obama released a longer birth
certificate in 2011--but that release did not bring "closure"
to the issue. Instead, Trump called it a forgery, citing
"Israeli science," and announced that he was sending a team of
investigators to Hawaii to uncover the truth. He suggested
that a Hawaiian health official who knew of the cover-up had
died in suspicious circumstances.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
