Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he’s done with questions about President Obama’s birthplace.

Asked on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” this week if Mr. Obama was born in the United States, Mr. Trump said: “I don’t talk about it anymore.”

“I talk about jobs, I talk about our veterans being horribly treated — I just don’t discuss it anymore,” Mr. Trump said.

He said vets are being treated like “third-class citizens.”

“They’re treated worse than the illegals. I mean, the vets [in] this country are so mistreated — terribly. I’m talking about the military, building it up. Those are the things I’m talking about. I’m not talking about that,” the real estate mogul said.

In 2011, Mr. Trump had claimed credit after the White House released the president’s long-form birth certificate in an attempt to get past the issue.
