WHAT WILL HE SAY?
by Sharon Rondeau
At 12:02 p.m. there are only speculative comments below his Twitter identification. Most comments are negative, suggesting that Trump’s announcement will be of little to no consequence.
A YouTube video made by Trump is available now on his Facebook page. In the video, Trump states that he will give $5,000,000 to a charity of Obama’s choice if Obama will release his college records, including the applications, and passport records. Trump said the check will be delivered “immediately” if the records are released.
“We know very little about our president,” Trump said.
Trump said the records “must be given” by October 31 at 5:00 p.m. He said that “the American people will be happy” if Obama complies with his request.
“It’s a check that I really, really want to write,” Trump says in the video. He claimed credit for being the catalyst which prompted Obama to release what he claimed was his long-form birth certificate in April of last year which experts have terms the image a “computer-generated forgery.”
“He’ll be doing a great service to the country if he does this,” Trump said. He claimed there is “anger” that Obama has not complied with the request to date.
The press contains some of the text of the words spoken in the video but also describes a “deal” Trump has made to Obama on behalf of “millions of people” who he said have contacted him to act as their “spokesman” to urge release of the records. Trump has termed the deal something he believes Obama “cannot refuse.”
