Sarah Palin Washington, Apr.11 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has said she appreciates Trump using his resources and paying researchers to confirm President Barack Obama’s birthplace.

Palin approved of Donald Trump’s efforts to investigate Obama’s birth in Hawaii and hiring investigators to look into the matter but refused to support the notion that he wasn’t born in the US.

“I appreciate that Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something that so interests him and many Americans. He’s not just throwing stones from the sidelines, he’s digging in, he’s paying for researchers,” Politico quoted her as saying.

” I think that he (Obama) was born in Hawaii because there was a birth announcement put in the newspaper, but obviously there’s something there that the president doesn’t want people to see on that birth certificate. He’s going to great lengths to make sure it isn’t shown. And that’s kind of perplexing for a lot of people,” she added.

Several news outlets and independent groups have pondered over the “birther” issue and dismissed it as misleading.

Only “natural born citizens” are eligible to be the president under the US Constitution. (ANI)
