WASHINGTON, D.C. --- US President Donald Trump demanded this afternoon that Maryland-born General Conference President Ted Wilson produce his birth certificate.
Trump claimed that he did not for one minute believe that Wilson was born in the United States.
"The guy is always jetting off to questionable international locations, riling up huge crowds of foreigners," said Trump spokesperson Ken Yan, who said he had personally heard that Wilson was "a hit in all the new countries that we want to add to our travel ban."
Yan also added the fact that Wilson spoke French did not at all bode well.
General Conference lawyers immediately responded with a statement that Wilson was under no obligation to slow his busy international schedule of door-to-door Great Controversy distribution to prove that he was born in Takoma Park, Maryland.
The Trump administration returned fire with a tweet warning that "this isn't the first time 'The Donald' has made a president produce a birth certificate."
