Hillary Clinton's camp quickly responded to Donald Trump's short statement declaring President Barack Obama was born in the United States, saying that he added lies on top of lies he'd already told.

"Trump took no responsibility for his bigoted attacks on our President," Clinton's Press Secretary Brian Fallon tweeted:
 

The controversy started anew this week, when Trump would not answer a question posed by The Washington Post about whether he thought Obama was born in the United States, and early on Friday, Clinton continued to criticize his response on the issue as bigotry.

"When will he stop this ugliness, this bigotry?" she asked Thursday night in Charlotte, NC. "Now he's tried to reset himself and his campaign many times. This is the best he can do. This is who he is."

Other Clinton supporters reacted Friday with disgust to Trump's statement, including former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, who tweeted: 

 

 

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid also called Trump a "liar" over his accusations that Clinton had brought up the birther accusation, which has been disputed by several fact-checking sites.

"Hillary brought it up? What a liar," Reid told CNN's "At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan" program, shortly after Trump made his statement.

"He never questioned citizenship of anyone else running for president, no one else," the Nevada senator said. "He is just such a phony. Here's a man you can't believe anything he says. Nothing. Certainly you don't believe the fact he's not going to give us his income tax returns because there's an audit on every person of consequence, says it doesn't matter if he's in an audit or not. Now he's so weak on the subject he doesn't even talk about it. He sends his kids out to talk about his tax returns."

"He is one of the most unbelievably immoral people I have ever heard deal with politics. Here's a man who attacks people of color, women, people's sexual identity, people who are handicapped," Reid said. "He now makes fun of the fact that I'm blind in one eye. I'm blind in one eye, okay? I got that. But I can still see with my good eye what an absolute fraud this man is, who wants to be president of the United States."
