This past Wednesday, the ever-so popular or controversial (whichever way you look at it) Donald Trump made a $5 million offer to President Obama to release all of his college applications, transcripts and passport history. In return, if done by Obama to Trump’s satisfaction (of course), he will donate $5 million to the charity of Obama’s choice. Let’s not forget this is the same man that was at the center of the whole “birther” controversy, questioning whether the president was born in the United States. On Monday, Trump made an announcement to announce that he would make another announcement Wednesday. Not many people knew or seemed to care, but Trump insisted that it was major and people should listen up. I don’t think anyone was really surprised either way. You might be asking what effect this has on the election. I can tell you right now, it doesn’t. You might also be asking why Trump is still stuck on this notion that Obama is withholding information from the public. Even if this is true, it’s irrelevant. Every party has its radicals, and this promised October “bombshell” announcement stopped at that. I mean, come on, Trump. We are less than two weeks away from the election, and I can just about guarantee you that Obama’s college and passport records are the furthest thing from any voters mind. But leave it up to Mr. Trump to bring it to light. The problem is that no one really considers this an issue except Trump. Give it up. I am all about the candidates being honest, but if this was supposed to help Romney’s chance of winning, Trump fell short. The same thing happened with Romney and the Democrats wanting him to release his tax records. Even though neither of them have come forward with information yet, is anyone THAT worried? I don’t think so. At the end of the day, Republicans don’t really care and Democrats definitely don’t care, so the campaigns can just go on about their business in my opinion. If Obama feels so inclined to release them, then various charities will greatly benefit. If not, then they won’t. That might sound ill-willed on the part of the president, but at the end of the day it will not make or break the president’s chances for re-election. Both candidates have bigger fish to fry in the closing days of the campaign.
