We all knew it was coming. Heck, it was an inevitability really, but Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has finally gone full birther on fellow GOP White House hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio, saying he’s “not sure” if he is eligible to be President.
On Saturday, Trump retweeted one of his followers, who said Rubio is not eligible to be President of the U.S. since he was born in Florida to Cuban parents.
During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s This Week, the reality television star was asked if he believed the tweet.
I think the lawyers have to determine it. It was a retweet. Not so much with Marco, I’m not really that familiar with Marco’s circumstance.
Trump was then asked why he would retweet such a claim if he wasn’t even sure he himself believed it, to which the narcissistic billionaire replied that he was just trying to “start dialogue” on the issue.
Uh, because I’m not sure. I mean, let people make their own determination.
Somebody said he’s not, and I retweeted it. I have 14 million people between Twitter and Facebook and Instagram, and I retweet things and we start dialogue and it’s very interesting.
The real estate mogul has quite the history of being a “birther.” He still questions if Obama is eligible to be President, despite the fact that he has been in office for two terms now. Trump has also questioned the eligibility of Sen. Ted Cruz is since he was born in Canada, even going so far as to call him a Canadian “anchor baby” and threatening to sue him regarding the matter over and over.
