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:
- Hillary Clinton's campaign was reportedly hacked as part of what appears to be a broad cyber attack on Democrats.
- A federal court struck down North Carolina's voting restrictions, ruling they intentionally made it harder for black people to vote.
- Four people in Florida are likely the first to contract the Zika virus from mosquitos in the US, the state's governor says.
