Subject: Pool Report #1 -- Obama on bitherism

A pool report outlining Obama's remarks at the TPP pool spray is forthcoming, but first his reaction to ABC News' Jon Karl asking him about Trump's remarks on whether Obama was born in the United States.

"I, John, have no reaction and I'm shocked that a question like that has come up at a time when we have so many other things to do. Well, I'm not that shocked actually. It's fairly typical. We got other things to attend to. I was pretty confident about where I was born. I think most people were as well. My hope would be the presidential elect, election reflects more serious issues than that."
