Trump to donate $5 million to charity if Obama releases records

Donald Trump has offered to pay $5 million to the charity of President Barack Obama's choice if Obama releases his college and passport records

"Frankly, it's a check that I very much want to write," Trump said in a YouTube video released on his Twitter and Facebook pages on Wednesday.

The real estate developer and television personality has in the past questioned whether Obama's birth certificate issued by the state of Hawaii is legitimate.

He, along with other conservatives and conspiracy theorists, allege Obama was born on foreign soil, which would make him ineligible for the presidency.

Last year, Obama released his long-form birth certificate, which shows he was born in Hawaii, in a bid to end what he labelled as "silliness" over the authenticity of his birth certificate and the legitimacy of his presidency.

Trump did not state what he expected the college and passports records to reveal but was specific in saying he wanted to see all of Obama's college applications and records as well as his passport applications and records.

"President Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country. If he releases these records it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans,” Trump said in the video.

Trump, who had considered running for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has set a 5pm, October 31 deadline for the release of the documents.
