Washington, Sept 16: US Republican presidential nominee Dold Trump’s campaign has acknowledged that President Barack Obama was born in the US, media reported. By broaching the topic three years later, Mr Trump had done a “great service” to the public and president, senior Trump advisor Jason Miller said in a statement. The statement was followed by a media interview in which Trump had declined to say Obama was born in the US, and declined to answer the question. Trump had been a leader of the “birther” movement that questioned Hawaii-born Obama’s citizenship but his campaign has now accusing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton of introducing the “smear”, a claim that Obama was actually born in Kenya and therefore ineligible to be President, during the 2008 Democratic nomition contest, BBC reported.
