In New Hampshire, Trump Takes Credit For Birth Certificate Release, Says More Investigation Needed [Video]

dt In New Hampshire, Trump Takes Credit For Birth Certificate Release, Says More Investigation Needed [Video]A gaggle of reporters met Donald Trump this morning when his helicopter landed in New Hampshire and the real estate tycoon-turned-reality TV star took credit for pressuring President Obama to release his long-form birth certificate.

“I’m really honored and I’m really proud that I was able to do something that nobody else could do,” Trump said.

Then he seemed ready to move on from a controversy that he had done much to stoke.

“Hopefully when I sit down to interviews people don’t start talking about birth certificate, birth certificate, like they’ve been doing.  So I feel like I’ve accomplished something really really important and I am honored by it,” he said.

Trump held court for nearly 30 minutes, and proves unsurprisingly adept at ducking questions.

Note: Trump is the father in-law of the Observer‘s publisher, Jared Kushner.
