When presidential candidate Donald Trump called out President Barack Obama for being born in Kenya, he was labeled a conspiracy theorist and a "birther" by CNN and the mainstream media. But as the years go by, more and more evidence has emerged that seems to support Trump's claim that President Obama was indeed born in Kenya. Speaking at Johannesburg in South Africa, Obama described himself as the "first sitting president to come from Kenya."

By itself, the statement may not be convincing to a skeptic, but how about the "promotional booklet produced in 1991 by the literary agency Acton & Dystel showcasing their roster of writers, among whom was a young man named Barack Obama." According to snopes.com, the literary agency published this description of Barack Obama claiming he was born in Kenya:
"Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White."

Still not convinced? How about when his wife Michelle Obama slipped up and said, "we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya." So Kenya is his home country? If she is speaking in terms of historical heritage why does she not say "our home country?" While all this may not be enough to prove the Barack Obama was born in Kenya, the totality of the evidence adds up to a compelling case.
