Donald Trump doesn't back down from 'birther' claims

Donald Trump was asked repeatedly Monday about his years-long claim that President Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States.

You can watch the exchange above, and you should, but Trump appears not to answer debate host Lester Holt's question as to why he suddenly this month declared Obama was born in the United States.

Tons of additional coverage here.
