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 has ordered a full review of hacking activity related to the 2016 election. Intelligence officials have alleged Russia used the hacks to interfere with the election.
