(NBC News) Donald Trump admitted Friday that President Obama was born in the United States, and attempted to blame birther movement on Hillary Clinton.

Speaking at an event for veterans in Washington D.C., Trump claimed Hillary Clinton started the birther movement and he finished it.

“President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period,” Trump told the crowd. “Now we want to get back to making American strong and great again.”

President Obama weighed in by brushing aside the controversy.

“We’ve got other business to attend to, I was pretty confident about where I was born,” the president said.

Clinton, meanwhile, demanded an apology.

“Barack Obama was born in America plain and simple. Donald Trump owes him and the American people an apology.”

Clinton went on to say Trump traffics in conspiracy theories and should not be president.

“I see our great diversity, which is one of our core strengths, not our burden,” Clinton said. “We know who Donald Trump is. Now it’s time for our country to show who we are and reject his divisive vision.”
