Digital News Report – This is not the first time that Obama has shared his birth certificate said the White House. It was back in 2008 during the Presidential campaign that the official birth certificate of Obama was posted on the Internet to address any questions about his citizenship. It was the short form issued by the state of Hawaii. That wasn’t sufficient enough for Donald Trump and others questioning Obama’s citizenship. Which is why the White House has now made available the long form and other supporting evidence of authenticity.
Donald Trump has been on several television and news programs saying that President Obama had something to hide with his birth certificate and he should make it public. Now that the birth certificate has been posted on the Whitehouse.gov website, Trump is now starting to question Obama’s education that he had.

The White House blog post said that this birth certificate debate is a distraction that isn’t good for the nation because there are real problems that need to be addressed.
Obama held a press conference to announce the efforts that he has went through to display his birth certificate. He said that he has posted the birth certificate that was issued from the state of Hawaii and other affidavits of its authenticity. Two weeks ago the budget debates started and during the entire week, President Obama said that the news reports weren’t about the money issues of the federal government, but instead the focus was on his birth certificate. He hopes that the nation can come together to solve the big problems instead of being distracted by made up stuff. Obama said that “we do not have time for this kind of silliness.”
