Cantor: Birther Trump isn’t a ‘serious’ candidate
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is literally laughing at the possibility Donald Trump may run for president.
Trump has questioned President Barack Obama’s citizenship in recent weeks as a centerpiece of a possible presidential run.
“Would you support a Donald Trump candidacy especially with all this birther talk?” CNN’s Kiran Chetry asked Cantor Wednesday.
“No,” Cantor laughed. “I don’t think he is really serious when we see a campaign launched on the birther issue.”
“It’s very early on in the political season. I think that there’s some very weighty issues that we’re going to have to tackle. What the American people are going to look for in a candidate for president in 2012 is I think someone who can be honest with the American people,” he added.
