Trump: Romney camp hasn't asked me to lay off the birther talk

Steve Marcus/Reuters

Doesn't sound like the Romney camapign is too bothered by Donald Trump's birtherism, which he doubled down on today...

The Huffington Post's Jon Ward just interviewed The Donald, hours before he hosts a massive Las Vegas fundraiser for Romney. Ward tweets:

Trump said Romney campaign has not asked him to not talk about birther issue: "They haven't done that."

The Obama campaign definitely sees a political opportunity though. "If Mitt Romney lacks the backbone to stand up to a charlatan like Donald Trump because he’s so concerned about lining his campaign’s pockets, what does that say about the kind of president he would be,?” a spokeswoman asked earlier Tuesday.
