After much self-promoted ado, Donald Trump has finally made his long-awaited "very big announcement" about President Barack Obama.

In a video message, Trump offers to pony up a $5 million check to charity if the Commander-in-Chief releases his applications and records for both college and his passport.

"President Obama is the least transparent president in the history of this country," criticizes the reality TV host. "There's never been anything like it. We know very little about our president."

And that's what Trump claims he would like to change. "I'm very honored to have gotten him to release his long form birth certificate — or whatever it may be," he adds. "Now I have a deal for the president, a deal I don't believe he can refuse and I hope he doesn't."

Here's what the tycoon is putting on the table for the POTUS: "If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and if he gives his passport application and records, I will give to a charity of his choice — inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research — anything he wants, a check immediately, for $5 million," the billionaire business proposes. "The check will be given in one hour after he releases all of the records so stated."

"He will be doing a great service for the country if he does this," Trump adds. "If he released these records, it will end the questions — and indeed, the anger — of many Americans. They'll know something about their president. Their president will be become transparent, like other presidents."

Most specifically, Trump seems to be aiming to settle two long-running theories. Some conservatives believe Obama's college transcripts will reveal that the president was a poor-performing student who over-benefited from affirmative action. And the passport would provide an answer to speculation that Obama used a non-American passport in 1981 to travel to Pakistan.

"So all he has to do to get $5 million for the charity or charities of his choice is get his colleges to immediately give his applications and records and also to release his passport records," Trump says. The caveat: "The records must be given by October 31st at 5 o'clock in the afternoon."

"If he does that, to my satisfaction…this check is delivered immediately," Trump boasts. "A lot of people will be very, very happy to see this happen. Frankly, it's a check that I very much want to write.... Mr. President, not only will I be happy — and totally satisfied — but the American people will be happy. And ya know what, those charities will be very, very happy. Thank you, Mr. President."

The Apprentice star has previously suggested that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney demand the release of Obama's college and passport records in exchange for his tax returns.

    I think this Donald Trump guy is the biggest ass-hole ever. Saying and behaving stupidly all the time. Who those he think he is???? He should go and correct his own life mistakes before talking about others... How can he blackmail a president or even anybody??? Am not sure that shows true citizenship to blackmail a fellow citizen and or even a president. So please Donald Trump shut the hell up!!!! We're tired of listening to your boisterous messages. And please Kristen Stwewart alone?? THANK YOU!!!!!

    @ohonore: This is not only blackmail but it is harassment. Who does Trump think he is harassing the President like this?

  • Sam

    This is probably the stupidest thing I've ever seen a person say or do. I used to think Donald Trump was an okay guy and a good businessman and whatever, but I now think he is a complete douche. I hope President Obama dismisses this and dismisses Trump's stupid behavior and that in fact will be a great service to his country.

  • ohonore

    Um...isn't this blackmail? Who in the world is Donald Trump to demand anything of the POTUS- especially with such bogus reasons? What a freaking douche. I doubt the president has $5 mill lying around, but if anything he should just put out an announcement to his followers so they can raise that money for his charity. Shame on Trump.

    Dear old Trump, no one cares about your antics. Stop trying to steal the spotlight by creating a mountain out of a mole hill.

  • ashley

    If he's so happy to write the check then why doesn't he just give the 5 million he obviously just has laying around to charity instead of using it as bait??
