Arkansas — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on a radio program Monday that President Obama grew up in the African country of Kenya, the homeland of his father.
There is no evidence that he spent any significant time in Kenya, although he wrote in his memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” that he visited there in 1988 after the senior Obama died in an automobile accident. Obama grew up in Hawaii and Indonesia.
“Having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different from the average American,” said Huckabee.
Asked about the persistent claims Obama was not born in the U.S., Huckabee said, “I would love to know more” about the president’s background. “What I know is troubling enough.”
