Donald Trump appeared on Good Morning America today to talk about his potential presidential run with George Stephanopoulos and the conversation turned a little ugly at some points!
Donald and George argued back and forth with each other throughout the interview on Good Morning America.
George told Donald that a lot of Republicans think he’s a “flawed messenger for the party” and that Karl Rove said he’s “a joke candidate” if he continues to question President Barack Obama‘s citizenship.
“There is a real question about the birth certificate,” Donald replied. “There is a real question about his own citizenship.”
“But there is no question,” George argued. “He has a certificate of live birth which is recognized by the state department.”
“George, I know exactly what you’re getting at,” Donald said.
“The facts!” George shouted.
“No, they’re not the facts,” Donald said, adding that George has been “co-opted” by “Obama and his minions.”
Trump then spouted off familiar talking points, claiming that Obama “doesn’t have a birth certificate, or he hasn’t provided it.”
But then he said the birther issues are “not a big focus of my campaign.”
Later in the interview, after Donald brought the issue up again, George asked Donald if he would be releasing his tax returns.
“Maybe I’ll do the tax returns when Obama does his birth certificate,” he replied.
