It's very odd (but not surprising) that they have resurrected this. Trump never brought this up. He hasn't used it as a campaign point. They are now bringing up old controversies because Trump is doing better in the polls. A Trump supporter on one of the panels asked why this was being brought up again, and Van Jones stated it's because Trump is trying to court black voters. In fact, that seems to be the line of choice from the Democrats on the panels. They say that he is trying to court black voters, but that is something that was offensive to black voters because it was seen as a racist way to undermine our first black President.
First of all, this was started by Hillary's supporters.
Were they racist? I thought all the racists had joined the Republican
Party. That's what liberals say.
Second of all, I don't believe
Trump would have questioned the birth certificate of someone like Corey
Booker, Tim Scott, etc. The reason Obama's birth certificate was
questioned by Trump and others is because of rumors out there (started
by Hillary supporters) of Obama having been born in Kenya. He had a
unique background with his father being from Africa and then moving to
Africa with his mother and stepfather. As far as his mother:
2008, Jim Geraghty from the National Review Online suggested Barack
Obama release his birth certificate to "debunk some rumors." In his
article Geraghty wrote, "one could argue that he would not meet the
legal definition of natural-born citizen under because U.S. law at the
time of his birth required his natural-born parent (his mother) to have
resided in the United States for “ten years, at least five of which had
to be after the age of 16.” Obama's mother was 18 when he was born which
means she did not meet this requirement.

For the record, I'm not saying I am/was a birther, but I am just saying there were reasons that people thought that.
they say that Trump is trying to get the black vote, and this issue is
hurting him with the black vote. The people arguing this are all
Democrats! Why in the world would they be concerned about this or want
Trump to apologize if they thought it would help Trump with the black
vote? My thoughts are that the majority of black voters aren't thinking
about that issue anymore as they are more concerned with their futures,
but I believe the media/Dems brought it up under the guise of "concern"
in order to siphon black votes away from Trump or encourage black voters
to vote Democrat.
