Donald Trump touched down in New Hampshire yesterday, dipping his toes into the presidential primary pool. The billionaire Republican made his first appearance in the state, and responded to questions over why he enflamed the "birther debate" on the day President Obama's long-form birth certificate was released. Trump has for weeks been questioning the President's citizenship, despite the fact that his official birth certificate from Hawaii was released in 2008.

Here and Now's Fred Thys reports on how the media star is playing in the state known for its retail presidential politics.

This segment aired on April 28, 2011.
