    Aug 12, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    Monday Feb 13 | Chicago Reader

    Is Donald Trump willing to go back to being a birther? While Barack Obama was president, no one more conspicuously questioned his legitimacy than his eventual successor. "I'm starting to think that he was not born here," Trump said in 2011-and if Obama was not born in America, under the Constitution he had no business being president.
