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:
- The family of Sandra Bland, who died in a Texas jail cell in July three days after she was detained during a traffic stop, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court.
- Migrant deaths in the Mediterranean have exceeded 2,000, making 2015 the deadliest year for people trying to reach Europe, according to the International Organization for Migration.
- At least 24 homes have been lost and one firefighter killed as dozens of wildfires continue to ravage drought-stricken California.
