He immediately reacted to—and took credit for—the disclosure at a press conference in New Hampshire, where he said that "today I'm very proud of myself because I've accomplished something that nobody has been able to accomplish. I was just informed ... that our president has finally released a birth certificate." He continued patting himself on the back: "I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role, in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue.
