Campaign: Trump believes Obama was born in US

Donald Trump's campaign said in a statement late Thursday that the GOP nominee does believe the president was born in the U.S. as it tries to quash repercussions of Trump's "birther" attacks on Obama.
"In 2011, Mr. Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate," spokesman Jason Miller said. "Mr. Trump did a great service to the President and the country by bringing closure to the issue thatHillary Clinton and her team first raised. 
"Inarguably, Donald J. Trump is a closer. Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States."
The campaign accused Hillary Clinton of starting the birtherism campaign as a sign of her "vicious and conniving behavior." But unlike Trump, Miller said, "Hillary Clinton was too weak to get an answer."
In an interview with the Washington Post published Thursday, Donald Trump refused to say whether he believes President Obama was born in the U.S. 
“I’ll answer that question at the right time,” he said. “I just don’t want to answer it yet.”
