President Obama seemed amused about the recent attention paid to his citizenship by potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Thursday.

Trump, who has been making regular media appearancesin the run-up to a potential run for the GOP nomination, has been taking up the cause of the "birthers," who question whether Obama was born in the United States.

 

Stephanopoulos brought up the issue.

Obama's response: "Well, you know, I think that over the last two and a half years there's been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short term for Republicans. But [it] creates, I think, a problem for them when they want to actually run in a general election where most people feel pretty confident the president was born where he says he was, in Hawaii. He—he doesn't have horns."
