Donald Trump on Barack Obama Charity Pledge: Not a Publicity Stunt!

by at . Comments

Donald Trump was a guest on Piers Morgan Tonight on Wednesday, standing staunchly by the $5 million charity pledge he made yesterday, provided President Barack Obama releases his college transcripts.

"It's not a publicity stunt," the Celebrity Apprentice host said. "I'm not looking to pay $5 million. Frankly, I have other things. I have my own charities that I contribute to … It's a serious, very serious offer."

Trump goes on to say he's making a "positive" gesture here, trying to help Obama become more transparent while, of course, assisting a good cause.

Asks the attention-ravenous real estate mogul:

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

Trump also suggests that Mitt Romney and the President arrive at a deal: the former releases his tax returns (which Trump hilariously refers to as "beautiful") from the last decade, while Obama comes clean with all of his transcripts.

What do you think? Of Trump? And of this question: Should Obama take the charity bait?
