Barack Obama slipped during a recent trip to Kenya and said he was the “first American president” to come from the country.
Recalling a visit to the country when he was president, Obama said, “Three years ago, I visited Kenya as the first sitting American president to come from Kenya.”
In 2017, Obama’s half-brother,Malik Obama, tweeted image of what appears to be Barack’s birth certificate.
Except it’s not from Hawaii, but rather Kenya.

“What’s this?” he tweeted.
The document is from the “Coast Province General Hospital” in Mombasa, British Protectorate of Kenya, and is for Barack Hussein Obama II, who was born on the “4th day of August, 1961.”
In 2011, the White House released what it claimed was President Obama’s “long form birth certificate.”
The President believed the distraction over his birth certificate wasn’t good for the country. It may have been good politics and good TV, but it was bad for the American people and distracting from the many challenges we face as a country. Therefore, the President directed his counsel to review the legal authority for seeking access to the long form certificate and to request on that basis that the Hawaii State Department of Health make an exception to release a copy of his long form birth certificate.
