Ever since he took office, Barack Hussein Obama has faced accusations that he was actually born in Kenya. Though he has always denied these claims, a top member of his own administration appears to have just confirmed that he was indeed born in the African nation.
Conservative Tribune reported that while meeting with Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed, Secretary of State John Kerry raised eyebrows by saying that Kenya gave Obama to America.
“When I mentioned that to President Kenyatta, he promptly said to me, ‘Well, we also had a hand in helping you win a silver because the person who won came from Kenya.’ … And I said, ‘Actually, Mr. President, you did better than a silver and a gold. You gave us a president of the United States,’” read a transcript posted on the State Department website.
