Donald Trump on his 'big' announcement: "It’s not a publicity stunt, it’s a serious, very serious offer"

Is it better to be lucky or good? In the case of Piers Morgan, maybe it's best to be both.

On the heels of Wednesday afternoon's "Big Announcement" by Donald Trump, tonight the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host welcomes the man who crowned him the first-ever winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Pledging to donate $5 million to a charity of Barack Obama's choice if the president releases his college applications and passport records, the television personality and business magnate insists it's a challenge that should be accepted:

"If there’s nothing wrong with his applications – if everything’s fine, why wouldn’t he do it?" wonders Trump. "I think it would be a terrible thing of the President to not do it, in order to pick up $5 million, I think that would be outrageous, personally."

Once a reality show contestant, but forever a journalist, Morgan counters:

"He would say that it’s just a publicity stunt for you."

The chairman and president of The Trump Organization sees it differently:

"I don’t have to pay $5 million to a charity of his choice, it’s not a publicity stunt, it’s a serious, very serious offer, essentially where a charity is the beneficiary, a great charity and a charity of his choice," the man dubbed "The Donald" tells Morgan. "[It] has nothing to do with me. Here is $5 million, a tremendous amount of money going to a charity of his choice; all he has to do is show some papers."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as Donald Trump explains why Obama's records and transcripts are important to the American people.

    Having raised two children I learned when they were young not encourage bad behavior. I will not watch Piers Morgan tonite and to not reward his lack of good judgement in his choice of a boooorrrring boob I will be much more selective in the future.

      How is Donald Trump being ignorant? If there is nothing to hide then Obama would simply provide the papers. He would no only make Trump look like an idiot, but also greatly benefit a charity. Show the damn papers.

        Uhh Thomas, he provided a birth certificate. That is NOT what is being asked for here. We all were able to see Bush and Kerry's college transcripts, why have we not seen Obama's? Everyone accused Bush of hiding his due to bad grades and they were astonished to find out he scored better than Kerry. What is Obama hiding that he's been our President for almost 4 years and we still don't know anything about him.

        I'm sure some people posting here aren't naive enough to believe the "If you've nothing to hide, why not release them?" approach. Every piece of information on Obama has been scrutinized, twisted, and distorted to try and create drama/conspiracy. All we need is for Obama to have visited Kenya twice, or for 2 months, for the fringe idiots to distort the record and allege this is evidence he is Kenyan, or to check dates vs Obama's books and say "see, he was 3 days out on the date he mentioned here, further proof he is a liar".

        If Trump cares about charity (more than the tax deduction it provides) then he should donate. If he wants to put up a real proposition, then offer Obama the 21 tax returns Romney provided to McCain during the 2008 VP selection process. Romney was involved in tax evasion – clearly unethical but legal with the proper steps. So, its a non-issue... but Romney still won't release them.

        This is all just fluff as each party is desperate and reaches out to whoever is willing to embarrass themselves like Trump here.

        Nonetheless, I'd love to see Buffett offer $6 million for Romney's tax returns, by October 31... just to trump Trump. :D

        Ed S–Neither Bush nor Kerry released their transcripts; Bushes were leaked. People were surprised that he had slightly better grades than Al Gore, not Kerry. Why didn't Trump ask for Romney's transcripts and passport application also? Could it be it's because no one has ever asked Mitt to see his birth certificate? (if you know what I mean, wink, wink; laugh, laugh)

        For the same reason you don't pay ransom to a kidnapper. A year ago it was the birth certificate. 6 months ago it was the long form birth certificate. Now it's the passport and college records. Should Obama give in, it'll just encourage more of this garbage. Trump's a nobody at this point. He runs a show no one watches and no one even cares about his success (and oft ignored failure) at business anymore. And Piers Morgan is a second to third stringer in the talk show world. The $5 million is nice, but the damage done in a sitting president bowing to a self-made joke of the political world would be far worse. Better to ignore it and find other ways to benefit those charities. He'd be an idiot to take the bait.

        Just so all you idiot "birthers" get a clue....Romney's father George, ran for President. President of the United States... Romney's father Gorge was born in Mexico....no one really knows about the mother, no one really cares.... but one parent was an American citizen. George Romney was born in Mexico...his exiled father was an American...Hence, George Romney ran for president.....George Romney was born in Mexico. George Romney's father was American and that makes George Romney a full blooded American....Let's say that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. There is no difference between Kenya or Mexico or Spain or Panama...where oddly, John McCain was born, His mother was an American citizen...and of better quality that Romney's grandfather who was a draft dodging Mormon with 14 wives, who renounced his American citizenship. But was granted a pardon....Trump....go jam it, youu are a moron.

        I think this is an excellent question from Donald Trump. I would love to see at least the college transcripts. And not for his grades. I think he does have something to hide. I think he took foreign aid as an Indonesian student. Not because he wasn't born in the US....but because he is an opportunist. Someone ELSE will pay for my college if I use the fact that I lived in Indonesia...deal! (you would really believe something different from someone who thinks redistribution of wealth is good?) I'm sure he thinks he DESERVED the free tuition. He's a liar like most politicians! Did you not read the promotional pamphlet for his book? Wake up people...he uses what will benefit him most when he feels like it.
        I find it annoying if someone asks for facts from the PRESIDENT that you are a "conspiracy theorist". No, we just want the TRUTH! BTW, I'm great with a push for Romney to put out more tax info and his transcripts from college! Transparency would be great!

        What a sad critique of conservatives. Trump has continually said he has proof that Obama was not born American, and yet fails to provide his "damning" evidence time and time again. The whole "birther" nonsense is nothing more than veiled prejudice. If Obama was white and his first name was John, you would never hear such ridiculous claims about his origin of birth. When Obama provided his long form birth certificate, it wasn't good enough. The conspiracy theorists then wanted his school records. If he were to provide those, Obama would be asked to provide some other form of identification. In this country, you shouldn't have to defend yourself from unfounded, baseless accusations. You're innocent until proven guilty. It's a right bestowed to all citizens, including the president. The burden of proof is on the accuser. Conservatives, put up or shut up. Either provide your so-called evidence or abandon your ridiculous witch hunt.

I would like to get the opportunity to meet you because you are true American. I wish others would stand up also and not let others beat the down before they found out the truth. Truth has nothing to do with the political parties, it is what our fore fathers built this country on. The media is biased towards Obama and his followers.

        Having taught at the college level for more than 40 years I can almost guarantee that the papers about which the Donald is making such a stink no longer exist. I know of no one who keeps such applications after his/her college career is underway. Further to expect the college or university to have kept thos papers is sort of silly. There is no reason to maintain such a file for30 years or so.

        Because it won't have any effect on the controversy. Trump or the tea party won't be satisified by it. The source of the request is hatred. Nothing will satisify the need! After he shows the college application and passport records they will ask for all school reports. After that, he will ask for birthday videos, photographs, whatever else. Nothing will satisfy the guy. Obama released his birth certificate and he claimed it's fake. Who is to say he wont claim the college application and passport record is fake? It's a given that he will call it fake. It won't end the controversy.

        Trump is nothing more than an affluent low-life. He believes everybody can be bought, including the President. Trump is the essence of the dark side of capitalism. The reason why he is a dishonorable man is because his utter lack of respect for the position in which Obama holds by the voice of the people. Unless you've been blind, deaf and stupid, it was obvious that Romney was not fit to lead. From his refusal to submit an acceptable number of tax returns to his 47 percent, it's obvious why Trump wanted him to win. MONEY. What's ironic is that I actually liked Trump UNTIL who showed me who he really was. I want to stress that I didn't vote for Obama blindly. I did research every day during the election cycle. By the time I was ready to decide, there were 17 reasons Romney was the wrong choice. After the election, additional sore-loser "words" from Romney added three more. Now for YOU, Frankie. Understand that Obama almost won by a landslide. You need to look in the mirror and wonder if you are truly an American who believes in Democracy, because that is why Obama is our President.

        Obama,through manipulation,deception and lies,he managed to persuade gullible folks like you to vote for him.Deceivers and Con-artists have a knack in getting people to believe in them,and these people do have real success,and they are good at it.

        Many truths about Obama has been unearth,known repeatedly,without any shadow of doubts;the Benghazi,IRS,NSA,etc...were now mostly known to most Americans,except you who love to a denier,to be gain-sayer ,be a liar,and deliberately tank with him.

        Democracy,yes,but does it also mean we should hide our heads in the sand,and let evil works of Obama run its course so that greater damaged to the country be done?Do you mean when Obama took Office,everyone should be tyranised for good,accept the fate?

        Do you mean perpetrators of evil deeds should get away because he already took office,and he could have free hands in doing his wicked agendas for Americans?

        While I see many buyer's remorse,but as for you,you really supposed by being Obnoxious will get you somewhere?If by being stupid is the agendas of yours,let it stick with u forever,and may you persists till the end in your Silliest Convictions...for good.If people want to harbor hypocritical Ideologies,and be an Holocaust deniers,the onus is upon yourself.If Integrity and Honor is never your Forte,no one will suffer repercussion ,except your own obstinacies.

I for one want to applaude Mr. Trump and his perserverence on the truth about our president. Before Obama was elected into office,his own grandmother admitted on television that her grandson Obama was NOT born in this country. Only a few short weeks after this public announcement, Obama's grandmother had died of 'unknown causes." Coinsidence? To run for president,it should be manditory from day one,for all candidates to prove that they are elligible to run for office--there's only 3 qualifications!!!! How much in taxes Mitt Romney pays is irrelevant to the doubtful citizenship of Obama. Again, THANK YOU DONALD TRUMP FOR TAKING THE INITIATIVE TO PROVE TO THE COUNTRY WHO OUR PRESIDENT REALLY IS!!!!!

He proved to appropriate authorities prior to his candidacy that he was an american and eventually showed his birth certificate in short and long form to the whole American public. No president before or since has been forced to do the same. And now you're asking for his passport and college records? He's the leader of the free world. He visits other nations on our behalf regularly. I'm going to go out on a limb and say someone with the proper authority (ie not Donald Trump, Piers Morgan, or crazies on the web) has seen and verified the man's passport. Get a life.

Now that was YOUR conclusion that you came up with on your own =]. Now another thing, Obama is the ONLY president in history that has a questionable citizenship. There are only 3 requirements to be elligible for the president of the US. Therefore PROVE IT OBAMA.

I for one want to applaude Mr. Trump and his perserverence on the truth about our president. Before Obama was elected into office,his own grandmother admitted on television that her grandson Obama was NOT born in this country. Only a few short weeks after this public announcement, Obama's grandmother had died of 'unknown causes." Coinsidence? To run for president,it should be manditory from day one,for all candidates to prove that they are elligible to run for office–there's only 3 qualifications!!!! How much in taxes Mitt Romney pays is irrelevant to the doubtful citizenship of Obama. Again, THANK YOU DONALD TRUMP FOR TAKING THE INITIATIVE TO PROVE TO THE COUNTRY WHO OUR PRESIDENT REALLY IS!!!!!

He even looks evil now when he smiles. It's hard to feel sorry for alot of these people on food stamps/welfare when you know they are voting for him! It is a really sick relationship he has with poor people who depend on him. He has never once said he wants to get people off of food stamps/welfare...not once, that is strange! He keeps saying he's going to increase "manufacturing"....even tells the college kid in the town hall debate. You know that guy was thinking...OH YES, MR OBAMA I WANT TO PAY $100,000 AND WORK MY A$$ OFF FOR A COLLEGE DEGREE SO I CAN BE A FACTORY WORKER!!!SOUNDS GREAT!!! Obama does NOT GET IT or CARE!

Does he think that just because he did not go to college and made millions he can challenge a sitting US President just because he is an Afro American? Does he think offering President Obama a five million dollar bribe under the pretence of “it is for a charity of his choice” will make the sitting US President step aside? This is just one of those ploys to distract voters from the fact that Obama is the winner and Romney a looser. Donald Trump should be sued for deformation of character after the elections.

If they wouldn't sell at his price he said he'd floor their houses.

Don't be fooled by Trump or Romney/Ryan they are & will be as bad as bad as can be, for America.

        And God forbid Romney gets in, because an act of God could then make Ryan President, & that would be a "Total Disaster" for the two of them especially Ryan, have nothing between the ears of any substance. You have been warned, people of America, you either say a big NO to them or have them bring you into their version of "Dante's Inferno". That's your choice! & do you know only one of 21 countries the BBC polled wanted Romney to be President (Countries included, England, Poland, Kenya, China, Russia, Canada, Australia, Spain, Germany, to name a few) that one country being Pakistan, now ask yourself why Pakistan hopes Obama doesn't win. Would it be the drone issue that is taking out a lot of insurgents there, or could it be that they think Romney will give them more money to be good boys & keep their people in check, I mean, Bush gave them plenty to shush them, 1&1/2 $billion a year or so.

      Why are all the people getting after Donald Trump? He is an american expressing his views! It's not racist to ask for something that seems reasonable from a political figure. here is my opinion, there are two reasons that Barack Obama will not take Donald Trumps offer, 1, he is hiding something in his past or number 2, he is afraid that the 5 million dollar donation to a charity of Obamas choice would somehow put him in the tax bracket of the hardest working and smartest people in the world. Yes, the Upper Class! if you dont agree it is probably because you are one of the people reliant on the government to take care of your illegitimate children and keep paying your bills for your lazy butts!

      FYI Romney DID release more than one years tax returns just a few weeks ago. Obviously it was no big deal as everyone expected. He paid an average of 20% in the last 20 years in federal taxes (per PricewaterhouseCoopers who prepared his returns) doing the same thing any of us would have done if we had the resources; hire someone to figure out how to get out of paying taxes LEGALLY which is why you take the interest deduction on your house, college loans, etc. Romney didn't make the federal income tax rules, he just plays by them like the rest of us. How about you releasing YOUR tax returns for the last 25 years (and by the way you are not required to keep them beyond 3 years unless you file a fraudulent return). I bet you can't even find them... This is just silliness.

      I do not understand how most of you care more about how much money that Romney is making rather than whether or not Obama is who he says he is. I give much credit to Trump for stepping up and calling him out. If Obama has nothing to hide, then why has he been hiding so much for so long? The only people that want Obama back in are those that are too lazy to get out and work for a living as well as giving health insurance to those that cry foul when others succeed in life but they are too lazy to provide for themselves. It is sad when hard working Americans are paying thousands of dollars each year for health insurance and then lazy bums do nothing and have better coverage. Obama needs to prove who he truly is and stop hiding. He is not an American! Why doesn't the President of the United States even put his hand over his heart for the National Anthem? Dont any of you think about who he is or is all to benefit you and the low end Americans (or not even Americans?)

    This is just Trump trying to stay in the news and keep his birther claims alive. You can be sure that if Obama did release the records, Trump would find some tiny error to criticize. "Look, he mispelled the name of one of his recommenders!" or "His handwriting looks Arabic!" therefore "He cannot possibly have been born in America."

    The sad thing about this guy is that he doesn't know the difference between a publicity stunt, a partisan political stunt or good policy. If he is serious about giving money to charities and helping those in need, why tie it to such a showing. If he is serious about making politicians more transparent, why not equally tie to requiring Romney's release of his tax filings? I appears his real motive seems to be neither to do good for those in need or improve transparency in our leaders. It is only to attempt to embarrass one leader for the political gain of another and probably his own gain. He probably hopes to be made the new Secretary of Buffoonery if Romney wins.

    The interesting thing about liberals is that there is always a level of immaturity and emotional instability with them. How many posts have you read where there is childish name calling and emotional outcries about such a simple topic. Trump is doing a great favor to this charity and clearly many in America would like to know more about Obama. Those of you who are driven by CNN and popular culture probably can't think beyond what you are told by the media. Nonetheless, its a great way to find out more about who Obama is, as a man, as an American, and as our President. How can anyone not want to know more? Romney is not the President of the United States so bringing his name up is nothing but a projection of your intellect not grasping the reality here.

So please tone down the emotional outcries and relax. This is a simple offer for a simple task. It's not about Romney, it's about Obama.

      To g_o_d_: you sound like the Trump. Here is something: Donald has not heard that the highest game is the 'no trump game." He likes to portray himself as the robber baron kind of industrial revolutionary overbearing type, and no doubt he says things that don't deserve to be repeated or printed, and yet, somewhere, he has to have something in his skull, even if he had a good start in his life. He has an itch to be noticed, at any price. And no, I am not impressed by him, but rather repelled, even if Piers finds him interesting, or whatever. Donoughout Trump is/would be/ probably plays dirties of anyone in business, and in politics, too. So you lose, because no trump is the highest game, Mr. Obnoxious cigar sucking cherry mouth.

    Donald Trump is looking to get his name in the news. He probably wants to start a new tv program. If he were serious, he would ask both president and vp candidates for the same the same information. The president did practice law. If he had not attended the colleges as stated, the colleges would have notified the press. It's time the media pay attention to the information their correspondents are dispensing..

      Obama is not a Muslim. He's a Christian.

That doesn't seem very much like he's being 'easy' to me. As for being 'critical' to Christians? When has Obama ever been critical to the Christian faith??

      Celebrating Ramadan? The White House celebrates Christmas and Hanukkah too...celebrating Ramadan is just being fair and not unintentionally alienating members of one of the three largest religions on the planet...

      How could you possibly think Obama is Muslim? What credible source has ever said so? Who has ever -proven- it?? Perhaps more importantly...since there is no credible source, and no proof...why would you repeat it?

    ( Help elect an Republican President ) but he was put on "Front Street" ( slang for embarassment) by the President in front of the country. After which, Donald Trump's contempt for President Obama became personal. Donald Trump does have a copy of the First Lady's Court Papers for Separation, but he was stopped in his track by Romney and associates. He was instructed to fall on the sword and should Romney get elected, Trump shall be given a position in his Administration for willinginess to take the hit.

    On this one Trump is 100% correct. The long form birth certificate produced by Obama can be pulled apart on a computer and is therefore not genuine. It is about time that his credentials as being a natural born American were properly prooved to stop the endless speculation and if this makes Trump donate $5M to charity then it will be a good thing. If Obama can not or will not proove his natural born American credentials he should resign. The whole world would like an end to the speculation surrounding this man's birth.

    Politics in America is ludicrous beyond words.

And major media pays attention to this? And why do major nationwide sites like CNN allow foul language about the President of the United States to be posted? I don't know whether the lack of standards of basic civility is a cause of the breakdown of our society, or a symptom, but it is WRONG that someone should be allowed to call the President trash on a public forum.

      I'm going to do my best to be kind about the utterly ignorant way in which you've warped logic to fit your own world-view...

      "Either he gives up the info or he hates charity"...

      That's right...if Barack Obama doesn't give in to the petulant demand of a self-aggrandizing, egotistical ass-hat who can't stand the thought of being out of the spotlight, then his reason MUST be that he hates charity. Never mind that Obama gives to charity consistently...as shown by his tax returns, of which he's released YEARS worth, unlike another presidential candidate I could mention, (just sayin'...)

      "If he has nothing to hide, he'll do it. If he is somehow traitorous, he'll keep the info secret to protect his agenda."

      The suggestion that a man keeping his personal life private is in any way an attempt to hide traitorous activity is just pure...I can't even call it ignorance. Ignorance suggests you don't know any better...A statement like yours just implies irrational thinking and malice.

      As for nothing to hide...if you asked me for my passport or my college transcripts, I'd tell you no, and I'd walk away. I've got nothing to hide either, but that information is none of your business. Why are Obama's college transcripts and passports your business, or anybody's business? The man is already president of the United States, and he will be so until at least January of next year...nothing about his transcripts or passport will change that...get over it.

      If you think it'll have a bearing on the coming election, then I say it's unfair to ask it of him without asking the same from Mitt Romney. While we're at it, let's have Romney meet the same standard that the President already has...release his birth certificate, (just because), and release as many tax returns as Obama has. Romney won't do that, but it's fair to ask Obama to do even more? If I were Obama, even if it were legal, ethical, or logical for me to meet Trump's request, I'd insist that Romney agree to do the same before I even considered it.

    Any one who has doubts about President Obama's birth and citizenship should do some deep thinking.
    While he was campaigning for election to the presidency, if there was any question about his Birth place or citizenship the Republican party would have raised such a stink one would be able to smell it all around the world.
    Do the research for yourself, DON'T take Donald Chump's word for, it.he is a self-serving Narcissist who has nothing better do do then to stir up cold stew.

    $5 million on the table going to a charity for school and travel records? Seems like a simple request given $5 million will go to an Obama charity. Why not? Why did Obama have all those records sealed? As Eastwood said, Obama is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the America people. All these people asking for Romney to produce tax returns, but not one of those same people ask for Obama to release his school transcripts and passport travel records.

    Because he is non-white, I guess, Trump expects him to have all the paper trail of his entire life! Next out, may be Rush Limbaugh, will ask him to produce his first every diaper he pooped in. I mean, how many people really save their college application beyond a day they receive acceptance letter? How many people save their DMV license application? How many people save their first passport after it is expired and all of the visa stamps are obsolete? The instructions when you get a new passport is to destroy the expired passport if its content is invalid. Trump purposely asked for such items that he knows there is a good probability that a person may not have. Ridiculous. If Trump as a claim of any sorts, instead of creating this hype to pamper his ego and his street like style, he should just release it on a website with evidence; and if the info is incorrect or is invasion of privacy, he opened himself to a $5 Million lawsuits.

Romney already released his records and proved he paid 20% in taxes from his income. You call Trump an idiot and a racist, which makes no sense. He cant be an idiot to have made the money he has over the years. Why is all Obama bleeding heart liberal supporters cry racism every time someone challenges him. GET OVER IT...the racism card is old and worn out...i mean really? I don't support Obama's foreign policy – i must be a racist. I don't appreciate his administration lying and covering up the attack on our ambassador – i must be a racist. I found it sad that his family was headed for divorce just before he ran for president – i must be a racist. I think this country needs a fresh and America loving administration – I MUST be a racist. I think Obama loves his muslim heritage more than his American ties – i MUSt be a racist...you people need to get another response.

He said that he comes from a poor family. Tell me how does one get into Columbia University with those credentials?

    Why dont you people understand this countries tax system. Everybody is up in arms about Romney's 15% tax rate. Romney pays this tax rate because his investments are inside of a fully taxable investment account. What this means is that any gains he makes in investments, he has to pay 15% back to the Government. If you do not make any income, you do not have to pay income taxes. If you make gains in your brokerage account, you will pay 15% capital gains tax. BY THE WAY, that money he has in his investment accounts has already been taxed at income tax like rates. If he was to be taxed as income every year, he wouldnt make money, and in fact if he payed 40% every year out of his brokerage account, he wouldnt have any investments. ALSO! this is a great way for ANYBODY to save for the midterm goals you might have (usually to age 60). It's called education people...... I recommend you learn about things like this before you judge. This is not INSIDE information. This is common investment knowledge.

    Obama saying yes to Trump's offer would be an awesome way for him to gain support in the eye of the American voters. "Look everyone, I released all of this information about me even though I didn't have to, and donated all of the money to this charity."
    So if he refuses the offer, then there's more to Obama than we know. Why wouldn't you accept this offer? It's not complicated.

Well, Blacks seem to feel that the white man owes them something because they were broguht over as slaves 200+ years ago. Blacks expect the white man and the US Government to pay for everything for them. This is the main reason Obama has the following, becasue his is a brother.Blacks need to get over it and move on!

        White people turn because black get preferential treatment. How, you ask? A white man is not allowed to have a "white only" college, White Miss America, White Entertainment TV, United Caucasian College Fund, and the list goes on.

        This president is all about the low income that will not work to provide for themselves and give healthcare to them and immigrants that cannot even speak english. That is unfair to the true Americans that make this country great! The ones that have worked every day to provide for their families and do without many things in life in order to buy insurance for their families. OBAMA, YOU ARE ARE DISGRACE!

        I want to add one more thing and how I know this first hand.

        Several years ago my father was injured at work. He owned his own company and had insurance, the problem was that the insurance company rejected his claim. My Father was 45 years old. This was 1985. He spent his life savings trying to get help. He fell in a ditch and lost the use of both arms. He had paid Social Security and Medicare all of his life and applied for it to have an income just to survive. It also was rejected. Why? He was white! NOw you may say this is untrue but listen to this. My sister called in a couple of weeks later and spoke like a black woman and mentioned that he was black and he was immediately given Social Security and Medicare to assist with Doctor bills. Now you tell me why some people are racist and how they get that way. Believe it or not, I have fought it and I am not racist. I am telling you this because it was said that we are not born this way and we are taught to hate. Think about it... JD

African Americans in particular need to take a stand ... we are not that far removed from the 50's and 60's where are ancestors used the power of protest to bring notice to injustice and inequality. Whether you support President Obama or not ... what some members of the Republican party are doing and have been doing to destroy his character is not just politics – it is personal and racist! If we envision an America where every child regardless of their race or gender can dream of leading this nation, we need to initiate a change that ensures that all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.

Or more so what does he have to gain by help getting Romney elected? Ahhh all those back door deals are already in motion. I am so disgusted by some of the comments I see here and the ignorance of so many Americans.. Trump is a national shame and embarassment to us all.

    Why has the President been hiding these records for so long, and where is the media which was so inquisitive about Gov. Romney's taxes? It should be very simple for the President to produce these simple records. So what is he hiding?

George Romney was born in Mexico to an American parent and a stray "bindered" Mexican wife...one of 16. George Romney ran for President.....the fact that he was white should not have made a difference.....the man was born in Mexico. How is it different from Obama?

    Donald Trump needs to get a life and stay out of politics, he is just displaying his political ignorance with all his 'publicity stunts'. There are no two ways about it, the more he trys to make President Obama look bad, the more the chances for Mr Obama winning. Mr Trump needs to leave the President alone and focus more on searching for new hairstylist.

      If the Brits or Canadians or Swedes want braces, they can pay $6,000 like Americans do and buy them outright. Americans don't "get braces" either. We buy them. And so can those on national health care plans. The difference is that those people actually have the money to do so because they aren't paying so much for basic medical care; they aren't bankrupted by a trip to the emergency room, or cancer. That some people don't buy braces is because they'd rather spend their money on things like rent, college, furniture. They have MORE choices, not less.

        Most dental plans in US cover a large percent of braces if needed. Try waiting a week to see a CA doctor and getting turned away for treatment because government doesn't think you need that medicine or care. Have you stood in a pharmacy line for an hour in Canada that goes around the corner cuz line so long at 10pm? Have u had a grandmother die waiting for a surgery while the governent thinks about it? Im a duel citizen I know both systems. The US is far superior. And fact, less ppl in all of Canada than California. And Canada still can't get it right! So...that's the healthcare system u want?!

    I truly think President Obama WILL release all these records and I believe this for three reasons. #1: There is absolutely nothing wrong with his records. The only reason he has refused in the past is that it's none of anybodys damn business whats in them. #2: How could any politician pass up a chance to have his name attached to a 5 million dollar donation to charity, especially during election time? And#3: It will (hopefully) shut this pompous a$$ up once and for all.

    What if Romney’s ‘Birther” joke wasn’t a joke at all, but a threat?

    According to a recent MIT poll: 73% of Republicans (Romney’s base) question the place of Obama’s birth. If we accept the fact, as Romney does, that Obama was born a U.S. citizen in Hawaii, allowing public access to his Hawaiian natal records* in return for Romney’s FBAR reports, which provide detailed information to the IRS regarding foreign bank accounts, should be a ‘no- brainer’for Obama. Sure, Romney can refuse, but not without a cost to his base. Not a bad outcome in a close race for simply revealing a truth.

    Yet it seems Romney was able to effectively threaten Obama into silence with his August 25, 2012 “joke” about his own birth certificate. How come?

    okay to everyone saying Donald should just donate the money 'no strings attached', it's none of your business what he decides to do with his money. I don't see liberals foaming out the mouth trying to get out and donate, and don't say buying starbucks is your way of contributing to your shrine ' planned parenthood'. Donald is offering the money to a charity, but he's requiring the president to do very little to do have this money received. So if that money is to go to charity, why not produce your papers? The reason you fear the information the president has to release, is because you don't want to see your idol that you all worship so much, dragged through the dirt, like every republican candidate has been dragged on BS media like MSNBC. Donald is obviously willing to donate the money, but just like every other liberal, you don't want to work for it. If Donald Trump is so stupid, how come he can build multiple multi-million dollar corporations, and you cant?

Yes where are they, where is his passport application, his school records? He supports people who want to control women's issues and bring this country back 100 years.

    As for Donald Trump, he did it this time; the man has no brains, he definitely has a problem. Does he think that just because he did not go to college and made millions he can challenge a sitting US President just because he is an Afro American? Does he think offering President Obama a five million dollar bribe under the pretence of “it is for a charity of his choice” will make the sitting US President step aside? This is just one of those ploys to distract voters from the fact that Obama is the winner and Romney a looser. Donald Trump should be sued for deformation of character after the elections.

    I just wonder.... If it were not the the most powerful man in America was not a black man.........

    Would there be so many stunts to prevent people from coming out to vote???

    Would a white president be given more than 4 years to clean up an awful economic crisis that took 8 years to make???

    Would there be so much racial hatred towards the President???

    Would the world expect the Presidents plan to work when the opposing party blocked everything that he put in place to make the economy get better???

    I could go on and on, but it is a sad day when we are in the year of 2012 and people don't realize when their true colors are being exposed by their OWN actions. It is quite obvious that some people are just completely intimidated by Obama and the fact that he is black and in the most highest position in America. That goes for the analysts and commentators as well.

    GET OVER IT! It's been 4 years and since day one, many of the opposing forces have been in a complete OUTRAGE, UPROAR, and ALL OUT ATTACK that a black man has finally made it to the White House and in charge by the way. You can say what you want, but a man's integrity goes a long way as far as I am concern. It illustrates character, fairness, and a true desire to help all people.

      NO PRESIDENT has EVER EVER EVER been reelected with the unemployment rate above 8% He has had FOUR years to do something about it. He had control of congress for two of them. HE DID NOTHING BUT SPEND MONEY! Wake up...it has nothing to do with race. He has done nothing to fix the problem (He spends more time blaming the problem on other people than doing ANYTHING to fix it!). Also FYI, the housing market crash which caused most of our financial problems (not the wars..they actually usually help get us out of financial trouble– go read about pre- WWII economy)> THAT mess was because of the democrats in congress.
      Read up, educate yourself. DON'T just listen to bogus political ads that tell you how to think. People died for your right to vote. You should take it seriously. I read and inform myself. I never vote just for one party (I have voted on both sides for President)
      And if you want to hear about character– read the information about attacks in Benghazi and the emails the President should have received before the attacks were even over. TWO American lives could have been saved if your President was paying attention and did something (other than surf the internet for a video to blame). Think about why he would lie to the people. And YES he was caught LYING!!!!!!!!!!
      I'm not wealthy, I am middle class. My family has been crushed the last four years. I can't imagine ANY middle class person voting for four more years. What has he said he will do differently?!?!?!?
      I am insulted that you just think it's about race. It's not. It's about the horrible state of our Country. And I want a President who is focused on what can I do to fix it...not who can I blame.

        Since your so intelligent and well informed let me ask you this?

        What president put the economy the worst position that it has been since the Great Depression? Was he democratic or republican? Was not the majority of the republican politicians backing his administration? I do agree with you about no president being re-elected with the unemployment rate being where it is... But no president has ever entered office with the economy being in the state that it was either. But just like Obama was the first black man has ever won the presidency .... This will be the first time that one is re-elected with the unemployment rate above 8%.

        I personally don't get into the black and white thing I am more for what's wrong versus right. But when I can drive down the road and see bill boards with a dummy in the resemblance of Obama being hung on a noose...and it's allowed to stay there then clearly for many whites it is a race thing.

        I too am middle class. I too have voted both republican and democrat. I too have done my own independant research. I worked in the mortgage industry during the boom years. I did not work on commission so I did not get rich like so many did. There was so much fraud going on, and so much misrepresentation. It was so obvious it couldn't last. This was abuse of the system. Most of those I worked with that made so much money are broke. They have lost their homes and are unemployed and it is of their own making because they made enough money to live on for years. I am relieved Obama worked to change banking regulation. I am relieved Obama has worked to save the auto industry. I do not know what Romney may do because the republican party isn't what it used to be. I can not support the radical beliefs of the Tea Party and the far right.

I mean if Romney and Ryan's own home states would not support them... what does that really say about those two men?

    I am embarrassed for Piers and for CNN that Trump was even interviewed. Such blatant disrespect for the Office of the President. Not to mention the ridiculousness of it all. I thought you guys were a respectable news channel. So disappointed.

    The only reason Trump is on such a vengance is he is RICH or thinks he is. Of course rich people want a rich president!!! Do you think they want to lose their tax breaks?? It's clear Romney is for CEO's and the Rich. And if he wins I don't want to hear all of the "uninformed republicans" (poor people) that think he is a quick fix for the Bush mess cry because they got what they wanted.

    Shame on Piers Morgan and CNN for giving this meglomaniac a pulpit from which to make a mockery of being an American. Are ratings that important? Any clown who wants to be on TV merely has to contact Piers, who in his desperance to appear relevant, will let anybody say anything. Quite Pathetic.

    What is really sad is the fact that someone has to offer 5 million dollars to get the president to release this information. The president would put the final nail in the presidential election if he would have done this on his own and got the American peoples trust. We all have to provide a resume when we apply for a job. What's the big deal, Provide your dang resume mr president and unite the American people and stop dividing the American people – Rich versus Poor. So sad....... I am American, not democrat no republican "think American"....

        Asked about federal disaster relief for recent tornado and flood victims at last night’s GOP debate, candidate Mitt Romney called the spending “immoral” and said the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be privatized. ...With greenhouse pollution on the rise, the United States has been struck by a “punishing series of billion-dollar disasters.” Embracing a radical anti-government ideology from the most extreme elements of the Tea Party, Romney said that the victims in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and other communities hit by tornadoes and flooding should not receive governmental assistance. He argued it is “simply immoral” for there to be deficit spending that could harm future generations:

    This stunt has nothing to do with Obama, it is all about Trump's mental health. Trump needs a professional psychiatrist and advanced mental care. The question is who can convince him to invest his $5 million on himself.

    Everyone is talking about the offer and whether or not President Obama should take him up on his offer.At this point he has showed his birth certificate and if that doesn't prove that he is a citizen then i don't know what else does. But even with that aside , If Donald Trump wanted to donate 5,00,000 dollars to a charity , then why does he need a reason to do so. He should do it out of the kindness of his heart . There should not be any stipulations behind it. That being said i don't blame the president i wouldn't take him up on his offer either.

Four more years will make up for the horrible 8 that we have before President Obama. I don't know about you, but I hate walking backwards. Making Romney president will do just that.

    This is all a distraction. The fundamental truth is that Obama's policies have failed, and those who want to re-elect him should note that a form of insanity is repeating the same mistake over again expecting a different result!

    First of all I don't hate Obama, I strongly dislike him. Second of all, I don't dislike him because I support the Republican party: I'm Canadian! Did "Canuck" not give it away? Thirdly, I only dislike politicans who fail their countries and simply are poor leaders. Being a Canadian citizen and looking at Obama from an objective view, I definitely think he has failed America, has gone back on his promises, and that Americans would be much better off without him as their president. In this case, the only other option is Mitt Romney.

    Donald Trump has the money but not the brains. He somehow thinks that the President is a fake. Psychoanalytic theory would have it the other way round. Mr. Trump has secrets which he is hiding. Attacking others allows him to hide his secrets.
    Mr. Trump still sees the world through his blinkers. President Obama won. Mr. Rove and Mr. Trump are now shell shocked.
    It would be great if readers could help them find diversional activities to help them through this period of denial. Eventually there will be the mental realignment as the truth will sink in. They are in denial. This will take time.
    God Bless these two lost souls (I really mean soles). They are full of self righteous behaviours without an inkling of ground reality.

    Don't worry, if Obama turns it down, I will gladly present Donald with copies of my transcripts so that money doesn't go waste. For the record, if Obama hasn't shared them he should, it is common and past Presidents have. My guess based on his lack of business sense and understanding of economics is that it would be interesting. This is obvious to people like Donald Trump that understand business, so for whoever it was that said Donald Trump is an idiot should probably reconsider. The country is a big business and Obama is failing miserably in running it, it is like he didn't even take business 101. YOu don't spend more money in four years than just about every other President combined. His plan has demotivated the entreprenuers and businesses in this country from keeping or growing their businesses, so jobs are reduced and then he takes more from the business owners, who by the way, also take on the risk when they start a company and then they have to cut more jobs, or shutdown completely and then people lost their jobs and they blame the business owner. Really? Obama is on a really bad cycle and while for those of us that can sit on here and type we might be ok, our kids are in some real trouble. I am not sure we are going to be able to dig ourselves out of the mess he got us in. It would be nice if he would acknowledge his lack of skills in the economics area and just get some support from someone who knows what they are doing. And please stop spending money on cell phones for everyone. Next there will be tootsie rolls falling from the sky from flyovers by airforce one as a ploy to take the attention of the real issue of economic failure.

    I am so surprised at Donald's comments. Here is this man, who I used to look up to, saying such ignorant comments. It is clear to see he is just seeking attention. If he really wants to donate $5 million, then do it and be quiet about it. I hope he one day decides to run for president so that he can see how much people of America despise him.

    If Obama has nothing to hide,he would have shown his birth certifcate.The proposition from Trump that he is totally dishonorable will gain grounds and in due time,more people of our world,maybe many of them will be fully convinced,indeed,Obama was never a USA citizen.In fact,I saw more and more people doubted Obama,and more people grow in strength and numbers.Obama should drag his trusted people down,and suddenly everyone surrounding him have to behave irrationally,and once they lost their honor,their integrity,they will never get it back to sanity.Mark Zuckerberg had a great idea and he can sell it well,and succeed.Trump will succeed,and his rationale will sell,and sell well.Thanks to those who have something to hide and could not counter a good rebuttal.Every Detective and Investigators inside USA and our world,they are not dumb folk....We know the truth.Period.
