Beaming with pride, Donald Trump took credit on Wednesday for President Obama releasing a copy of his long-form birth certificate — but with some qualifications.

“I’m very proud of myself because I’ve accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish,” he said in press conference in New Hampshire. “I’m really honored.”

But, Trump said, “we have to look at it. We have to see, is it real? Is it proper?” He added: “It is rather amazing that all of a sudden it materializes.” And, Trump said, there are still questions about President Obama’s background. “The word is,” Trump told the press, Obama “was a terrible student when he went to Occidental [College]. He then gets to Columbia. He then gets to Harvard.”

“I don’t know why he doesn’t release his records,” Trump said. “Why doesn’t he release his Occidental records?”
