I don’t know if he was born in Hawaii or not. I do know he is lying about something regarding his birth.
Well put. The evidence is clear there is something about his long form that he and his allies have spent significant effort hiding.
Explanations given for him fighting tooth and nail to prevent revealing his birth certificate: He is playing a sick game. He wants to establish a pattern that nobody will question anything about him. He was not born in Hawaii.
THAT is the issue
He is hiding his birth certificate, even to the point of excusing soldiers from combat duty if they question his authority. Why?
This sets him (US) up for blackmail by any foreign or domestic power that obtains the information he is hiding
zero has, so far, failed to produce a valid birth certificate from an American hospital. Earlier, when this came up, zero produced a Certificate of Live Birth (COLB) from a Hawaii hospital. Shortly after he released it, it was proven to be a forgery and, after that, zero had all of his records sealed and pulled his alleged BC from his Internet site. In addition, the state of Hawaii revealed that, at the time, anyone could apply for and receive a COLB if they were alive. It was NOT a birth certificate indicating that the person was born in Hawaii (they have since ended the practice of issuing COLBs to anyone who wants one!). Since then, every challenge to his eligibility has been met with his legal team obstructing and squashing the challenge.
IMO, where there's smoke, there's fire.
