Remember that “very big,” potentially game-changing announcement the billionaire business mogul has been touting regarding the presidential race? Well, it’s basically more of his Obama birther madness. The Donald is promising to donate $5 million to a charity of President Obama’s choice if he releases records related to his college and passport applications.

“When he does that to my satisfaction, if it’s complete, this check is delivered immediately,” Trump says in a video posted Wednesday on YouTube.

In asking for the information, Trump called Obama “the least transparent president in the history of the country.” That, of course, is from a guy backing the Republican White House nominee, Mitt Romney. And we all know how transparent Romney has been throughout this campaign. Tax returns, anyone?
