As featured at CNN live on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, Wolf Blitzer interviewed Donald Trump via phone and the latter started by saying a CNN reporter was lying about his report and accused him of being dishonest about President Obama‘s birth certificate.
Trump told Blitzer that the said interview was supposed to be talking about other topics and that he just wanted to express his opinion about the said document. The latter denied that they have discussed earlier on what specific topic to talk about; and the two later had an exchange of words.
“Many people do not think [his birth certificate] was authentic. Frankly, if you would report it accurately, you would probably get better ratings than you’re getting which are pretty small.” Trump told Blitzer, insisting that President Obama was not born in Hawaii.
Later, Blitzer showed the audience a newspaper announcing that President Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961, but the 65-year old real estate magnate and Miss Universe Organization owner continued to say that a lot of people do not believe it and refused to mention names.
“Donald, you’re beginning to sound a little ridiculous, I have to tell you,” Blitzer told Trump when he was interrupted by saying, “Can you stop defending Obama?” and later also called him ‘ridiculous’.
“Many people put those announcements in because they wanted to get the benefits of being so-called born in this country. Many people did it.” Trump continued, but not offering any evidence of his claim.
