Washington, Oct 7: Republican presidential nominee Dold Trump’s biography on the website of his privately held corporation, the Trump Organization, claims he forced President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate. The biography claims: “In 2011, after failed attempts by both Setor McCain and Hillary Clinton, Trump single-handedly forced President Obama to release his birth certificate, which was lauded by large segments of the political community.” Asked about the claim, which has been in his biography since at least last August, McCain’s spokeswoman Rachael Dean replied: “As the record clearly shows, McCain has never questioned Obama’s birthplace.”

McCain famously defended Obama against conspiracy theories when he carried the Republican presidential banner in 2008, the Daily Beast reported.

At multiple campaign events, the Arizo Setor forcefully pushed back against his own supporters who questioned Obama’s religion, race, and loyalty to the US.

Democrat Clinton, too, never attempted to force Obama to release his birth certificate, contrary to Trump’s claim. Trump, on the other hand, first emerged as a politically significant force when he began beating the birther drum in 2011, and he’s continued to do so ever since, even after declaring last month that “Barack Obama was born in the US, period.” Last summer, Trump, while vying for the Republican nomition, said of McCain: “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured? I like people who were not captured.” Trump received multiple medical deferments from the military service for bone spurs while attending business school and once called the risk of STDs while sleeping around his own “persol Vietm”. McCain spent almost six years in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, where he refused early release despite being brutally tortured to avoid the appearance of favouritism because his father was an admiral.
