Trump’s “Explosive” Announcement: $5 Million for Obama’s College Records (+video)

In a much-hyped announcement, real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump pulled yet another flashy move on Wednesday offering a monetary incentive in exchange for private information from President Barack Obama’s past.

Trump, in a stunt designed to draw media attention and set afire the conservative blogosphere, said he would donate $5 million to charity if the president released his college records and passport applications.

“I have a deal for the president, a deal that I don’t believe he can refuse, and I hope he doesn’t. If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice – inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants–a check immediately for $5 million,” Trump said.

He added that the check will be written “within one hour” of the documents’ release and set a deadline of 5 p.m. on October 31, one week before Election Day…and also right as children are heading out the door to begin trick or treating on Halloween.

“Frankly it’s a check that I very much want to write,” he said. “I absolutely would be the most happy of all if I did in fact make this contribution through the president to the charities.” Read more from this story HERE.

Here’s a CNN Interview with Trump about his $5 million charity offer:

    Nice try, but “The Donald’s” $5 (not so) very large is safe. Soros will never allow a peek inside of the marionette’s head.

    The interesting aspect of this article on CNN is reading the comments on the CNN site. You can tell CNN’s slant by who reads their articles and what those readers post. For example the CNN article does not mention that every credible forensic expert, including the top tech. investigating organization in Israel has branded Obama’s birth certificate as a blatant forgery.

    • Dick Tater

      Right. And if his college “transcripts” are released, they’ll be just as phony as his birth certificate.

  • MrChicken

    I am not a document specialist, but I am a Computer Scientist and I know what a layered document is. The birth certificate he released is a forgery. If he/she had saved this document as a JPG or HTML, no one would have known it was forged. The pres should hire a more competent forger, or better yet, just try being honest for a change. That is Change we could believe in.

    Oh Donald, Donald! You tweet? I have no idea why the Donald did this. He knows his offer will never come to fruition!
    With all of his dough I wish he could find a better way to take the man out of the race, or at least assure the integrity of our elections.
