Trump Does Nothing As Questioner Says Obama Is Muslim

At a town hall in New Hampshire, a man stood up and asked the billionaire businessman this question:

“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American. We have training camps growing when they want to kill us. My question: When can we get rid of them?”

Trump, who had even interrupted the man to say, “We need this question,” didn’t knock down the premise of his question at the end. Here’s how he responded:

“We are going to be looking at a lot of different things. And a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We are going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.”

When confronted by the media for his blunder Trump doubled-down simply stating that he felt he did a much better job.

Reality

Obama is not a Muslim. End of story.

Compare Trump’s handling of the situation to that of John McCain in 2008 and it is clear his failure to allow conspiracy theories to persist shows a lack of being Presidential.
