Trump has been teasing this “major announcement” on Twitter to much speculation. Turns out the bombshell was more of a bribe. Trump will give $5 million to the charity of Obama’s choice if the President releases his college and passport records by Oct. 31 at 5 p.m. Trump did not specify which time zone, however. (We’re holding out for Major Announcement Pt. 2.)
When asked about the video, Obama senior advisor David Plouffe said, “Direct those questions to Boston, because Donald Trump is Mitt Romney’s biggest supporter, so he owns everything he says.”
Here, Trump’s full statement:
- President Obama unveiled a climate change plan on Monday that calls for federal limits on the amount of carbon power plants can produce.
- Puerto Rico has failed to make a $58 million debt payment, and credit rating agency Moody's says the U.S. territory is in default.
- The man accused of fatally shooting a Memphis, Tennessee, police officer on Saturday has turned himself in.
