Congressman Keith Ellison's statement regarding Donald Trump's birther movement comments

MINNEAPOLIS—Congressman Keith Ellison released the following statement today regarding Donald Trump's birther movement comments:
“Donald Trump has been the loudest voice of the birther movement for five years. In fact, he used the issue to push himself into the national political spotlight. The half-hearted walk back orchestrated by his campaign Friday does nothing to change that.
“The only thing Donald Trump made clear is that he has absolutely no remorse for using a racist conspiracy theory, targeted at the first black President of the United States, to further his own political career. He owes President Obama and the American people an apology.”
