Trump’s $5 million challenge to Obama: release college, passport recordsby George Bennett | October 24th, 2012
Palm Beacher Donald Trump, whose birtherism helped fuel a presidential exploration last year and prodded President Obama to release his Hawaii birth certificate, is now challenging Obama to release college and passport records.
“Many, many people have questions, and very serious questions,” Trump says today in a video statement that doesn’t elaborate on what those questions are.
“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….a check, immediately, for $5 million,” The Donald says. To claim the reward, Trump says, Obama must release the records by 5 p.m. on Oct. 31.
“If he releases these records it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans. They’ll know something about their president. Their president will become transparent like other presidents,” Trump says.
