Most sources say the president's biological father was born on June 18, 1936. He died in a car accident in Nairobi, Kenya on November 24, 1982.
At 46, Barack Obama Sr. is involved in a car accident and both his legs are amputated. Not long afterwards he dies in another car crash in Nairobi, Kenya.
Barack obama senior died in a car accedent in Narobi, Kenya
No. This is simply another "Birther" rumor. He was born in the United States (Hawaii) and was eligible for financial aid when he went to college, because his family was not we…althy. As it turns out, his maternal grandparents helped to pay for some of his education, plus he also took out student loans. He has told interviewers that it took him years to finally pay off the student loans.
Barack Obama Senior was never famous during his lifetime. A talented but troubled economist (with a drinking problem), he was later known for being the biological father of Pr…esident Obama. He was not much of a presence in young Barack's life, something which continued to bother the future president for years. Barack Senior is the subject of the book "Dreams from my Father," in which President Obama tells about his journey to Africa to meet his late father's relatives and to try and understand why his father abandoned the family and never kept in touch.
No. Barack Obama Snr (the President's father) did.
Not at all. This is an internet myth. President Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, so he attended Columbia as a natural born US citizen; he received financial aid in the form o…f grants and student loans, and was never considered a foreign student because he was American by birth. It was his father, Barack Obama, Sr., who was from Kenya and studied in the US as a foreign exchange student.
The president's father was born in Kogelo, Kenya.
No, there is no credible evidence of it. President Obama was born in Hawaii, spent much of his youth there, graduated from high school there, and attended American colleges (i…ncluding Harvard Law School) as an American student. Sadly, there are a number of myths about the president on the internet, including some from the "Birthers," who refuse to believe that he is an American. But all of the reliable sources indicate he was never a foreign student. That said, there is sometimes some understandable confusion because of Barack Obama's father, who had the same name that the president has. It is Barack Obama Senior who was a foreign student: he came from Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he met Ann Dunham (the president's mom).
If you are asking about President Obama, no he was not. He was born in the USA and never studied at any foreign universities. But if you are asking about his father (who had t…he same name as the president), he did come to America to study as an exchange student, and eventually, he returned to Africa.
Barack Obama Sr. was 5 feet 11 inches.
He worked as an economist for the Kenyan government back in Kenya. He worked briefly for an oil company before he took the government job.
Barack Sr was an economist with the government of Kenya.
No one knows because he will not release his college records to the public. He has spent millions preventing the public from seeing his records
No, this is an internet myth, and there is no truth to it. The president was born in Hawaii, so he did not need to get into an American university as a foreign student because… was American. But there is some very understandable confusion because of his father, Barack Obama (Senior). The president's dad was an exchange student from Africa, and he came here to study in Hawaii; he then studied at Harvard. Eventually, he returned to Africa.
No, this is an internet myth. Barack Obama was a transfer student from Occidental College, but since he was a US-born citizen, he was never registered as a foreign exchange st…udent anywhere. That said, some people are understandably confused because his father (who had the same name as the president) was in fact a foreign exchange student who came from Africa to study in America. But the president was born in the USA in 1961, and was always an American citizen.
No, he was not. This is an internet myth. The president was registered as exactly what he was: an American student from Hawaii.
