Trump’s Big Announcement: A $5 Million Offer He Says Obama Can’t Refuse
White House adviser David Plouffe dubbed Trump’s flirtation with a presidential bid a “sideshow” in April 2011.
Trump — who began his offer by calling Obama “the least transparent President in the history of this country” — said releasing the records “will end the question — and indeed the anger — of many Americans.”
Trump has been teasing his announcement since Monday, when he told “Fox & Friends,” “I have something very, very big concerning the president of the United States.”
Trump is a vocal proponent of so-called birther movement and has continued to question the President’s birthplace even after the White House released his long-form birth certificate.
“I’m very honored to have gotten him to release his long-form birth certificate, or whatever it may be,” he said on Wednesday.

Trump claimed he will be “totally satisfied” if Obama releases the college and passport documents, although he added the vague stipulation that the records must be provided “to my satisfaction.”
