Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's sister thinks the birther movement is "unfortunate."
"I think it's unfortunate. He was born in Hawaii, there is a tremendous amount of proof that has already been presented," Maya Soetoro-Ng told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview scheduled to air Tuesday. "I think that it is time for people to put that to bed, put it to rest completely."
And what about real estate mogul Donald Trump's repeated calls for the president to produce his birth certificate?
"Well, I think it's a shame and I think that my brother should definitely be president for a second term," Soetoro-Ng said. "And that's really all I have to say about it."
Trump, star of "Celebrity Apprentice," has made a second career out of questioning the president's birthplace, most recently on CNN's "State of the Union."

It certainly is a Brief! Maya Soetoro-Ng may mean well but I for one do not believe she is helping. She only has "I think". I thinks certainly projects "unsure" or "uncertainty". No, she is not helping.
