In recent media appearances, possible presidential candidate Donald Trump has questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in this country and has demanded that Obama make public a birth certificate to prove it.

“If I were them, I’d be really careful riding that birther horse too much,” he said in an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America” that aired Monday. “Everyone knows it’s ludicrous.”
