President Obama told talk show host Oprah Winfrey Wednesday that he was never worried about “birther” challenges to his citizenship because he recalled being born in Hawaii.
“When it first came up were you thinking, ‘I hope I was born here?’” asked Winfrey.
With his wife at his side, Mr. Obama, grinning, responded, “Can I just say? I was there, so I knew that — I knew I had been born. I remembered it.”
The Obamas’ appearance on Winfrey’s show will air Monday.
