Republican presidential hopefuls were split yesterday, on Donald Trump not correcting a supporter who said US President Barack Obama was a Muslim and not American. 

Presidential hopefuls Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush said that they believe Obama was born in the U.S. and criticized Trump for not standing up to the questioner.

However, Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz refused to criticize Trump or say whether they believe Obama is a Christian, instead slammed reporters for asking about the incident, adding that it wasn't a candidate's "role" to correct a questioner.

The criticism has been piling up since a man at Trump's rally in New Hampshire on Thursday night prefaced a question by saying Obama was a Muslim and "not even an American".
