ROCHESTER, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declined to correct a questioner who said President Barack Obama is Muslim.
Trump was holding a town hall event Thursday evening in New Hampshire. His first question came from a man who raised concerns about terrorist training camps on American soil.
The man said: “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.”
He then said Obama is a Muslim and said he’s not American.
Trump did not dispute the man’s assertions. He said that he would be looking into the issue and plenty of other things.
Trump was a driver of the “birther” movement that claimed the president wasn’t born in the U.S. But he has distanced himself from the issue during his current run.
