Hey, Trump: Passport Renewal does not require a birth certificate

He's asking for Obama's passport application -- NOT his renewal application
Since Obama's been traveling abroad since he was a child, his initial passport application would be about forty years old. And Trump expects that Obama still has that old application all these years later?

Trust me, The Donald isn't interested in Obama's Passport renewal application. He wants the original application. There's no way for Obama to provide it.

Renew by Mail if All of the Following are True:

Your Most Recent U.S. Passport:

Is undamaged and can be submitted with your application
Was issued when you were age 16 or older
Was issued within the last 15 years
Was issued in your current name or you can legally document your name change

If any of the above statements do not apply to you, you must Apply in Person

A Note on the U.S. Passport Card:
If you are a previous passport book holder and you are eligible to use Form DS-82, you may apply for a passport card as a renewal by mail - even if it is your first passport card!

How to Renew Your U.S. Passport by Mail:

From Inside the United States:
To renew your U.S. Passport by mail, you must submit Form DS-82, Application for a U.S. Passport by Mail. Locate Form DS-82 and step-by-step instructions at Form DS-82: Application for a U.S. Passport by Mail.

How long will it take to process your passport application? See Application Processing Times.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

If your most recent U.S. passport has been mutilated, altered or damaged, you cannot apply by mail - you must Apply in Person.
We strongly encourage you to mail your passport application and any personal documents using a traceable delivery method.
In order to protect the contents of your mailing from the elements throughout the delivery process, it is strongly recommended that you mail your passport application and personal documents in an envelope large enough to fit the application without folding. Please do not use a standard letter-size #10 (4 1/8" x 9 1/2") envelope.
Passports renewed by mail in the United States may only be mailed to United States and Canadian addresses.
If you are behind in child support payments, you may not be able to get a passport (See Child Support).
From Outside the United States:
U.S. citizens residing abroad (except those living in Canada) should renew their passports at the nearest U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate.

U.S. citizens residing in Canada may submit Form DS-82: Application for U.S. Passport by Mail to the address listed on the form.

Need a U.S. Passport Immediately?

You should make an appointment to be seen at a Regional Passport Agency only if:

The U.S. passport is needed in less than 2 weeks for international travel
The U.S. passport is needed within 4 weeks to obtain a foreign visa
Contact the National Passport Information Center to make an appointment or locate a Passport Agency.

1. You should tweet

This to him.

It's falling on deaf ears at DU.

2. I don't even have my renewal applications.

And I bet that Trump doesn't have his either!

4. The application forms are pieces of paper that you fill out

and hand over to the Passport people. Unless you're the kind of person that photocopies and keeps everything like this, you would not have that application. Kind of like when you fill out, say, a credit card application, or the voter registration application, or the one to get a library card.

Application forms aren't kept by the person filling them out.

Plus, I think the State Department, the people who issue the passports, are pretty savvy and don't often issue them to people who aren't eligible for them.

5. But of course Obama would keep his lying around for four decades

Because he knew even as a child that some day he would be President (just as his mommy knew, which is why she placed that birth announcement in the Honolulu papers to hide the fact he was born in Kenya), and he has that application stashed away in a special filing cabinet of "future Presidential papers."

6. Chances are his "early" passport would have been a "family" passport

which they no longer do. Back when our family went to London in 1970, we had a family passport that had the one picture with all of us on it. But Rugrathair knows that, right?
