Dana Bash: Trump Likely to Address Birther Issue Today

‘It is likely that Donald Trump himself will be the one to address this issue and say those magic words’

"What we have heard since last night was a statement, a lengthy statement from Donald Trump's campaign in the name of his top spokesman Jason Miller, but I'm told that in some form or fashion it is likely that Donald Trump himself will be the one to address this issue and say those magic words, in some --some way shape or form. Those words being that Barack Obama was born in the U.S.. Now, we are going to have caveats here, because Donald Trump likes to do his own thing and this is an issue for him that stands alone for basically everything else. Because as we know, this is what launched his political career within the Republican Party, it gave him a launching point for the primaries."
