If Donald Trump isn’t on Twitter keeping the $5 million donation offer he made to President Obama pressed in the minds of everyone, he’s appearing on several talk shows discussing it. Last week he went on David Letterman’s Late Show and Tuesday he was a guest on Jimmy Fallon.
At the start of the interview, Jimmy told Trump he’s been very controversial lately.
Donald replied, “I don’t know if it’s controversial. Certainly I’ve offered a lot of money for something that’s very easy to produce. I don’t know that’s controversial. For some people it’s not controversial.”
The businessman said he’s doing it mainly “for charity.” He added that it’s good to “see what’s behind everything and make sure things are right” — Obama’s American citizenship.
Read about Trump’s one caveat he put on Obama for the $5 million donation here.
Donald Trump is hoping that Obama will accept his offer to donate $5 million in exchange for his college and passport records. At first the deadline was 5 p.m., ET Wednesday and due to the hurricane, he extended the deadline to Thursday at 12 p.m., ET.
Trump tweeted this Wednesday:
“The President has until tomorrow at 12 noon to pick up $5M for his favorite charity. Looking like he won’t be doing it. What is he hiding?”
How will all of this play out if Obama doesn’t accept the deal?
