May 16, 2011 The president, who recently skewered Trump's reality show White House Correspondents' Association dinner, may not have had the real estate developer in mind, since obviously Trump had achieved business success before becoming a TV star. But it's probably safe to say nothing Trump has done recently would make Obama reconsider his view.
May 16, 2011 "After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the office of the presidency," he announces. Plus, "business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector." Still, he thinks he would have won.
May 12, 2011 "I get a lot of credit for comb-overs," he tells Rolling Stone. "But it's not really a comb-over. It's sort of a little bit forward and back."
April 29, 2011 President Obama and his aides avoided expressing racial grievance during the 2008 campaign. And in dealing with the birther issue, they have continued that approach, leaving it to others to claim that birtherism has a racial and even racist element to it.
April 28, 2011 Sen. Rand Paul sought to give Donald Trump a taste of his own birther medicine, asking only partly in jest to see the long-form version of the New York developer's party registration.
April 27, 2011 "We do not have time for this kind of silliness," the president says of the so-called birthers movement that has been questioning — even though officials in Hawaii long ago offered evidence of the president's birth there in 1961 — where he was born.
April 22, 2011 "This is not just a feint," Krauthammer said on Fox News' Hannity about Trump's much-hyped talk about seeking the GOP nomination.
April 15, 2011 Donald Trump's 26 percent showing in a GOP survey grew to 37 percent when the pollsters looked at just birthers. And 23 percent of Republicans polled said they would refuse to vote for any candidate who claimed that President Obama was born in the U.S.
April 12, 2011 In a poll that likely doesn't tell us much about how the contest for the GOP presidential nomination will turn out but may speak volumes about how voters perceive the current candidate field, Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee are tied for the lead of oft-mentioned GOP possibilities.
April 12, 2011 "He was born in Hawaii. There is a tremendous amount of proof that has already been presented," she says.
March 30, 2011 After challenging President Obama, the Donald first released a document of his own that wasn't an official birth certificate — to much mockery. Now he has found the real thing.
March 29, 2011 And the mockery is bi-partisan after Trump releases what turns out not to be a real birth certificate of his own.
