Obama has just stated he released his full certification of live birth in order to shift the focus of the news cycle back to serious issues like the budget. He complained that while the Republican House set forth a budget that will have "serious consequences" on America's future, the news cycle was focused on where he was born.
"I've got better stuff to do," Obama said.
He then started lecturing the country about why we should not "vilify each other." That we can't get distracted by "carnivals and sideshows."
Donald Trump also made a statement about the release and took credit for the entire thing. Remember, the birther issue was initially started by Hillary Clinton supports before the 2008 democratic primary.
