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.
