Skip to comments.Trump to Malzberg: I Was Vilified for Obama ‘Birther’ Challenge
Posted on 02/05/2013 9:03:14 AM PST by Codetrader
Billionaire businessman Donald Trump told veteran radio broadcaster Steve Malzberg on Monday that he was vilified by the mainstream media for offering to donate $5 million to charity if President Barack Obama released his college transcripts.
They all came to his defense: How dare Trump do that? Trump said on the premiere of The Steve Malzberg Show on Newsmax TV in New York. It was $5 million that can go to Sandy, but I wouldve been willing to pay much, much more than that.
It was incredible, Trump added. Its absolutely incredible how hes protected.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, Trump launched a controversial birther campaign against President Obama, claiming that Obama was not born in Hawaii.
He offered $5 million to the charity of Obamas choice if he produced his college records among others.
The president laughed off the challenge on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," saying that his disagreements with Trump dated back to when we were growing up together in Kenya.
But the real estate mogul told Malzberg on Monday that he was still shocked that Obama declined the offer, especially since it was for charity.
I offered him $5 million if he showed, just showed, these college transcripts and also some documentation. Very simple stuff. Passport documentation. And he didnt do it, Trump said. Then, I gave him a certain number and I said I would raise it very, very substantially from $5 million, and he still didnt do it.
The mainstream media thought it was terrible that I had asked for that, Trump added. He couldve made a lot of money for showing a few documents literally, a few pages worth of documents and maybe some passport documentation.

Poor little Trump. Everyone is so mean.....Lord if you wouldn’t present it the way you did, it might have been a better outcome for you. You build this huge momentum and then when you present the evidence, it is basically comical. You did that many times over the year so you are now the laughingstock that you made yourself. You could have handled 2012 MUCH differently but your arrogance did not allow for it.
The Romans had the Pretorian Guard, Obama has the Pretorian Media
(thanks to Mark Levin for that comment)
More just humiliated.
Trump playing the GOP victim card after waving flag after flag to get media attention, including his make believe POTUS run.
How long will these records be sealed? Will history be denied the full disclosure of Obama’s records? I think not. Eventually they will be disclosed, but maybe not in his lifetime.
Didnt Trump sign off on that birth certificate, then go back to his TV show? $$$$
Trumps chumps LOL
You could have handled 2012 MUCH differently but your arrogance did not allow for it.
So YOU don’t see the pluckiness of Trumps proposal?..
YOU fault Trump from questioning Barry Half-White.?.
You must be a woman and a democrat to be so PROTECTIVE of Barry..
> Poor little Trump....
Okay, so why do you think poor little Obama didn’t produce the challenged records?
Well, Trump got Odumbo’s BC in the news again.
If Trump had followed through, he might be a hero.
How can something that never existed be “in the news?”
Obummer’s Chumps! LOL
Oh you Trump lovers are even worse than the Romney lovers or maybe you are one in the same. Trump was a complete fool and assisted in costing us the election by his STUPID nonsense of building up something supposedly big and costly to the President only to find out he had NOTHING. Go ahead and honor your Trump and Romney types. I will keep with Santorum, Palin and Bachmann who are REAL conservatives.
“Didnt Trump sign off on that birth certificate, then go back to his TV show?”
Trump accepted Obama’s COLB as proof Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961. Later, Trump offered $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice (offer later revised to exclude Rev. Wright’s charity) if Obama would make his college transcripts and complete passport records available for public inspection.
Trump gets it. Obama’s ineligibility is exposed in documentation developed post-1961. Each time an eligibility challenger demands documentation from Obama with a post-1961 origination date, Obots refer back to the COLB dated Aug 4, 1961 to prove Obama is eligible.
So why do you think your Hussein didnt produce the challenged records?
