16 Other Conspiracy Theories Donald Trump Has Pushed

Trump finally acknowledged Barack Obama was born in the United States on Friday, but he has propagated various conspiracy theories over the years, especially ones that harm his political opponents.

1. Trump accused Ted Cruz's father of being involved with the Kennedy assassination.

2. He repeatedly claimed that "thousands" of Muslims in New Jersey celebrated the Sept. 11 attacks as the Twin Towers collapsed.

3. Trump accused China of inventing the concept of global warming to make America less economically competitive.

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

4. He insinuated that the Clintons were involved in the murder of former White House aide Vince Foster.

5. Trump implicitly raised questions about whether Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered.

6. He insinuated that something malicious happened to the man who verified Obama's birth certificate.

How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived

7. He has repeatedly said that Muslims knew in advance of the San Bernardino, California, shooting, but remained silent.

8. He said that the government wasn't telling the truth about how easy it was for the Ebola virus to spread.

Ebola is much easier to transmit than the CDC and government representatives are admitting. Spreading all over Africa-and fast. Stop flights

9. He said the President Obama is sending Syrian refugees to Republican states.

10. He alleged that a protestor who rushed a stage he was on was connected to ISIS.

USSS did an excellent job stopping the maniac running to the stage. He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail! https://t.co/tkzbHg7wyD?ssr=true

At a rally in Dayton, Ohio, last March, a man attempted to rush the stage where Trump was delivering a speech. Trump later accused the man, Thomas Dimassimo, of having ties to ISIS after a bogus video appeared online. The video, which was later taken down, showed clips of Dimassimo with a description in broken and garbled Arabic. The Secret Service said they had no information that Dimassimo was connected to ISIS, and when Trump was asked about it, he said, "All I know is what’s on the internet."

11. He accused refugees of having cell phones emblazoned with the ISIS flag (and also paid for by the terrorist group).

12. He has claimed the Obama administration is manipulating deportation numbers.

Deportations are now at a record low. Obama manipulated the numbers to lie to the public that they were at a record high. Secure the border!

13. He implied Obama might be sympathetic to terrorists.

14. He claimed that vaccines cause autism.

Healthy young child goes to doctor, gets pumped with massive shot of many vaccines, doesn't feel good and changes - AUTISM. Many such cases!

At various times, Trump has alleged that giving children too many vaccines leads to autism. At a Republican debate last September, Trump said, "Just the other day, 2 years old, 2 and a half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic."

Trump has claimed that he's not against vaccines in general, but that giving too many vaccines at once leads to autism. Despite this claim, there is no evidence tying vaccination to autism.

15. He claimed Bill Ayers wrote Obama's first book.

16. He accused Hillary Clinton of starting the birther movement.
