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?

Trump is a d-bag with horrible hair. Some things money will not buy Donald....that's class. What a total, worthless asshole. Trump is a joke at best. Only thing he has going for him is a bunch of very smart people working for him, Beyond that he is a douche bag that needs to be flushed.

Donald Trump is such a racist asshole its not even funny and the truly sad thing is is that he doesn't even realize just how much a biggot he really is! He should just take that money he has and shove it up his nasty racist ass and endorse something that would probably benefit him better far better...fucking hair plugs! What a true slice of life he is.

Al Harpton, Shelia Jackson Lee, Samuel L Jackson, Morgan Freeman, just to name a few. Trump is bold just like Joe " Put y'all back in Chains" Biden! You don't have a clue as to what racism is. If your Black- then look in the mirror and if your white then you are weak apologetic misfit and you somehow think that speaking up for the black Obama will crown you not racist- you are wrong and that guilty mindset is everything that is wrong with this country.

Trump should shut his mouth. He has enough skeletens in his own closet and maybe a few of them should be told to the world. He's a big baboon.

First of all let me just say that Trump is a closeted racist with nothing better to do than hate on my president for trying to think of the people instead of himself or his money and unlike Chump" my biracial president has something that Chump will never even if he lives to be 100 , and thyself a thing called class. And that's something that can never be bought. Aside from that, I suggest that Chump put his hardly earned money where it rightfully belongs...getting himself a new hair piece and a new fucking personality because his old one sucks ass! That is all. Thank you!

Mitt Romney has not showed his college transcripts and passport records either. Yet there is no Trump offer of $5 million to charity if Romney releases them. How unfair. Trump apparently likes Romney, and yet he does not seem eager to give $5 million to charity for Romney releasing transcripts and passport records. If Trump made the offer to both candidates, then it might be considered a fair offer of $10 million to charity. But he didn’t. Moreover it seems to show that Trump has suspicions about Obama not being a good student, while he has no suspicions about Romney not being a good student. I wonder why that could be??? BTW, the allegation that Obama was a foreign exchange student came from an April Fool’s article originally written on April 1, 2009.

We don't give a damn about Romneys tax returns or about any part of 5 million from Trump. We want Obamas ass out. This country is fead up with his robin hood antics and his twisted thinking regarding class warfare. Get the ass clown out of office!

Why doesn't this moron put up 5 million for Romney to show us his tax returns? What is Romney hiding? Must be how he made his fortune betting AGAINST American businesses and stashing his money in foreign banks to AVOID U.S. TAXES.

Romney pays taxes according to the IRS and has nothing to hide but why is Obama not jumping to the challenge? Romney earned his money and paid his taxes and I am sick and tired of all the damn Democrats who seem to think that those who become rich don't deserve it. Where does Obama hide his money and what does he have to hide. He bailed out the wall street bankers at the expense of the taxpayers and put America into a 16 trillion dollar debt. This loser has to go for the sake of America.

It may not be a publicity stunt but it's definitely BS! Trumps hair is beginning to affect his IQ.

Grow up you dimwit and show some intelligence. Why keep harking on Trump's hair considering how many in Hollywood land look like idiots with their ridiculous hairpieces. Typical Democrat dumb statement because the majority don't have an analytical mind to know why Obama is a loser.

First, this bloviating ignoramus insists on seeing Obama's birth certificate. Now it's his college transcript. What I'd like to see is Trump's I.Q. score.

@ Dick Brandlon

Apparently I read somewhere that Obama was in the 50% average at college so that explains his IQ.

People like you kept GWB in power for eight years. What was his IQ? Or Romneys? Connections and wealth brought them into the spotlight, Obama worked his ass off to get where he is.

It looks like you have problems with IQ though...
