Mitt Romney

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has told Donald Trump it’s time to stop questioning Barack Obama’s citizenship.

The former Massachusetts governor said he now believes that President Obama was born in the U.S.

The comments come after several of Romney’s fellow GOPers, including Trump and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, publically questioned Obama’s citizenship, despite the fact his Hawaii birth has been confirmed by Aloha State officials.

Property tycoon Trump has stated he believes Obama was born in Kenya and claims to have sent a team of investigators to Hawaii to get to the bottom of the scandal.

But Romney told CNBC’s Kudlow Report: ‘The citizenship test has been passed.

‘There are real reasons to get this guy out of office … but his citizenship isn’t the reason why.’

Arizona’s ‘birther bill’, which was recently passed the state Senate requires presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before they can be included on Arizona’s ballot and receive any votes from the state.

Candidates who don’t have a long form of their birth certificate are also given the option to show two alternative documents, including a baptismal or circumcision certificate, a hospital birth record or a post-partum medical record.

The bill approved would make Arizona the first state to pass such legislation. Democrats say it exceeds the state’s authority.

The proposal is prompted by Donald Trump’s on-going crusade to prove that President Obama is not a U.S. citizen.

In an interview with CNN he pointed out that there are no photos of President Obama from when he was younger, only in his teenage years.

He also claims that no one remembers him from school.

He said: ‘If you go back to my first grade, my kindergarten, people remember me. Nobody from those early years remembers him.

‘If you’re going to be president of the United States, it says very profoundly you have to be born in this country.’

Romney this week declared his intention to run for president by forming a presidential exploratory committee.

A CNN poll this week found Trump and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to be tied for first place as the Republicans’ first choice for the 2012 GOP nomination.

Sarah Palin came in second with Romney and House Speaker Newt Gingrich tied in third place.

Sarah Palin also weighed into the debate saying: ‘I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources on something that so interests him and so many Americans, you know more power to him.

‘Obviously there is something that the president doesn’t want people to see, that he sees going to great lengths to make sure it isn’t shown. And I think that’s perplexing for a lot of people.’

Though the president released a certificate to prove that he was definitely born in Hawaii, Trump has set out to uncover what he believes he is the truth, citing missing information such as the hospital Obama was born in or the physician in attendance.

He claims to have reviewed Barack Obama’s birth certificate more than once and said that ‘birthers’ and other doubters will never be satisfied.

Romney said he welcomes the inclusion of billionaire Trump into the race to become the next Republican president.

He said: ‘He’s a new face and a new voice in the process.

‘My view is ‘come on in the water’s fine. The more the merrier.’

    In an age when in America,where Obama is trying to make it law to have a special I.D. just for the internet, is unthinkable.Romney needs to man up about Obamas birth cert.His Kenyon long form with footprint
    would be nearly impossible to fake,versus his phony made up one in hawaii.I have seen the articles on the guy who admitted producing Obama’s Hawaiin cert.By the time Obama gets out of office,I would be suprised
    if we have any country left, highly dought it.There will likely be another false flag event,that will create enough momentum to put in place, military law.
    Then the police state.Then the planned genocide of 85%
    of the worlds population.God knows what secrets are out there.I believe within 18 months.,the world will be unrtecognisable from what it is even today.I think by end sept or at latest by mid November ,2011 it’s going to get very,very,ugly .The lord will decide,in the end ,how it goes.Mercy…..I think most people are at heart ,good folks…..hope Im right….but,maybe that wo’nt matter…

  • Obama’s birth certificate is clearly miraculous since it has helped Trump secure such a good position within the Republican Party. I think Sarah Palin is hopping mad when she realizes that she could have come up with the issue herself.
