Donald Trump Defends His $5 Million Offer For Obama: 'It's Not A Publicity Stunt'

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikBarack ObamaDonald TrumpPiers Morgan

While Barack Obama was busy mocking Donald Trump on The Tonight Show last night, the Apprentice star was busy defending himself.

He swears that his $5 million offer for the President to prove his life story once and for all to the American people is not a publicity stunt.

If that's the case, then why did he have to go on Piers Morgan Tonight to say that?

Putting the obvious contradiction to his argument aside, here's what he had to say to the skeptical CNN host:

"It's not a publicity stunt. 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."

Like we predicted upon watching Trump's announcement, he's already criticizing the Commander in Chief for not taking advantage of the opportunity to "pick up $5 million for a charity" and charged:

"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."

Maybe because he's been the President of the United States for nearly four years and if someone doesn't believe he's an American at this point, they probably never will.

    The figures run from 1-2 MILLION $$$$ that Obama and his backers have spent to seal his files, from school, passport, etc
    Upon becoming President, he used a Presidental Order to make sure they remain sealed
    WHY ? WHY ? WHY ?
    This should have thrown up red flags all over the place
    He has a social security card that was issued in Con, a state he never lived in
    His ILLEGAL uncle also has a social security card, how did he get one ?

    Trump does anything for attention…..however, what's the harm. Why not release them and grab the 5 million for some of the children's programs in the lower income areas of Chicago??

    Of course you defend Obama not having to put out the information! Your completely one sided and don't stay neutral for your readers, shame on you perez. Keep out of politics stick with stalking celebrities. The democrats want everything one sided. They want Romney to release his tax returns for the last 20 years but you don't think obama should release anything? No ones ever spoken out about obama's past. The media makes this entire thing one sided. Why don't you democrats play fair for once? Oh and for the record im not a republican arguing this either

    Trump if Obama give you his school records … You need to bring your Taxes records … I'm sure that would have been more interested for anyone to take a look !!!

  5. 5

    the baggers, cons and repubs are desperate….who knew this site is full of them.

    cant wait to hear 4 more years of them complaining…its music to my ears!

    meanwhile, loser mitt will just enjoy his money he stacked offshore while his friends continue to steal your job and ship it to china!

    EVERYTHING Trump does is publicity stunt.

    "Barack Obama was busy mocking Donald Trump on The Tonight Show last night…"
    Obozo continues his derision and snarky tour of the sycophants on comedy tv shows, while he skips national security meetings.
    It's why he's losing.
    No real plans for recovery…just more spending, more taxes, bankrupting us and jive talk, while our Americans lie dead, as bumps in the road, to coverup his Regime's chaos.
    A jokester in these serious times, trotting out the smear whore, Gloria Allred to help push him over the finish line. He loses…America wins.

  10. thebigboot says – reply to this


    Yet what Alred is doing with Romney is not a publicity stunt?

  11. Etickets says – reply to this


    I could give a sh*t where he was born. I want to see his grades! Democrats were always calling Bush "stupid" and Obama is always talking about "basic math" … well put up or shut up!!!!

  12. 12

    He can say what he wants, but everything Donald Trump does is a publicity stunt. The issue isn't about whether Obama is hiding something. The issue is that Trump has continued to be a bully, and this whole thing is ridiculous.

    Barack Obama is the President of the United States of America. That is a fact. And if it was ANY OTHER PRESIDENT and he bowed down to a stupid stunt like this from the LOWEST OF ALL "CELEBRITIES" people would be calling the President weak.

    The President's job isn't to play into Donald Trump's need to be in the headlines. The President's job is much more important than that. America says they want to see him make changes but he can't do that if he is constantly having to deal with this kind of obnoxious bullshit.

    Ah racists hiding in good old far right Republican suits. If Obama was fully white but 1/2 German or other "white" forgein country born, no one would even be talking about this. Why not look at the facts rather than spewing the crap you read on Fox News.

  14. David says – reply to this


    Obama received financial aid for being a FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT…ITS A FACT and that's why he wants his records made public!!!! He was born in kenya

    Re: SnowQueen – It's not like he does his job anyways, when he refers to the murder of four Americans as "not optimal" and then forgets about the situation, that says it all.

    Don…plezzzzzzeeee. Give it up! Shut up? Go away and drink paint or something. Not a PR stunt? When have you ever done anything that was NOT for PR?

    You mean Obama is going to turn down that $5 million to charity? That is outright stupid. What an easy way to get money for needy people. His favorite charity is going to hate him for that. Hell, I'd do it. I'd open my school transcripts and let people see I got a big old C in Political Science. Who cares?

    I dont care Obama is Muslim, born in Kenya bla bla bla. The fact, Romney is just another Bush pt3 !!!!!!!!!

  22. 22

    Why don't you donate anyway, you piece of shit!!

  23. 23

    Re: The Hard Fact Told
    Actually, Rombo is a fiscal conservative and Bush was a big spender, in that Compasssionate Conservative kinda way. We were furious at Bush about this, who paved the way for Obozo.
    Obozo made a bad situation worse by tripling Bush's debt in half the time…8 yrs -vs- 4yrs.

  24. 24

    I wish Trump would stop embarassing the human race

  25. 25

    Just so odd that Obama would still skirt this question..We know Romney is a citizen. Just tell the truth..This is not a private issue so there is no need to keep hiding the information. Such a child to act the way he did on Jay Leno. He needs to MAN Up and answer the question.

  26. 26

    Of coirse it's a publicity stunt. It reopened questions about Obamas background which is exactly what he wanted. If Obama gave in people would either call it fake or complain that he gave in and has no backbone. Either way he can't win because people are going to see what they want to see. Trump is playing dirty.

    Trump Place fired the Donald as manager. Nice smokescreen on his part even if I think the offer is genuine bait.

    Re: fid – You didn't hear? MSNBC announced the "race card" was being over used, you're supposed to think birth control is the new major issue. Pass it on!

  29. 29

    Why would you ever pass on $5 mil for charity for something so simple? That money could go toward so many great causes, yet Obama isn't going to take it because of his own pride. That's just selfish. Do something that shouldn't hurt you (if you're being honest) for people who need the money. Think about others for a change.

  30. 30

    Why doesn't Obama take him up on it ???
    $$$$ FOR CHARITY……

  31. 31

    I can't stand him, nor Rush Limbaugh. They are both sad, pathetic people.

    Re: SnowQueen – If that is so, then maybe Obama should stay off shows like Tonight and The View and try and get justice for the Americans murdered in Libya.

  33. teeter totter says – reply to this


    Re: smithygirl – No birth control is not the new issue, the same issue this year as the last election is the economy, and as someone who has been out of work since 2010, that is what I am voting on, and why I voted for Romney.

    Sure, social issues are important, like birth control, abortion, etc. but my main focus is on who will get us out of debt faster (possibly impossible) and create jobs for all. And I do not want to hear about "green jobs" - somehow as a 60 year old partially disabled female I do not see myself installing solar panels. Thank you very much.

    Re: David
    "No Fulbright: Contrary to what this e-mail claims, Obama’s scholarship wasn’t a Fulbright. It’s true that many foreign students come to the U.S. under the Fulbright program, sponsored by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. But Fulbrights for foreign students are primarily intended for graduate students studying for masters’ degrees or Ph.D. degrees, not for college freshmen and sophomores."

    Why doesn't trump just give the 5 mil for scholar ships to the poor and middle class to go to college or training program. Trump wants to look charible? No he wants to look like the man that brought the president down. If Romney wins, Romney will be brought down by his own hands, he will be so undecided he is going to go crazy trying to keep up with himself. God help us all.

    Re: rdhmommy – probably for the same reason the Republican presidential candidate won't release his tax records like his own father did. I'd be more worried about that than about college transcripts. Oh, and Donald Trump needs to release the vaccination records of that rat on his head.

    Its amazing how many of you obama people are not intreasted that your president might be a liar and a theif.Why do you nuckleheads think obama has spent 2 million to hide his record from you.I think theres hope for you if you will take a minute and use your brain.
