WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who was one of the leaders of the "birther" movement that questioned President Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship, believes Obama was born in the United States, the Trump campaign said in a statement on Thursday.

"Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States," Trump senior communications advisor Jason Miller said in a statement.
