This is certainly a letdown. Donald Trump asked the president on Wednesday to release all of his personal documents—school records, passport application, etc.—and if the president concedes, the real-estate mogul said he would donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choosing. Calling Obama “the least transparent president in the history of our county,” Trump said he is “very honored that I got the president to release his long-form birth certificate, or whatever it was.” Trump said he would donate the $5 million within one hour of Obama’s releasing the documents, although Trump added the caveat that the release had to be before Oct. 31. Does Trump even have $5 million to back this claim up?
