President Barack Obama did not meet Donald Trump’s deadline of noon on Thursday to release his college and passport application records in exchange for a $5 million contribution to charity, Trump said.

The charity would have been of Obama’s choosing, Trump said.

“All the president had to do is give simple documentation, simple paper, a few pages and a charity would have gotten $5 million, or substantially more,” Trump said in a video posted on his Facebook page, Politico reports.

“Whether it was Wounded Warriors, whether it was the American Cancer Society, whether it was even the relatives of the victims of Beghazi, which I think would be an appropriate situation, the president decided that he wouldn’t be doing it.”

Trump offered the $5 million last month in a video posted on Facebook and Twitter. The president subsequently laughed it off when he appeared shortly thereafter on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

“In fact, just the opposite: He spent millions of dollars in legal fees to keep his records secret,” Trump said in the Thursday video, Politico reports. “There’s a total lack of transparency.

“Someday, those papers will come out and people will say, ‘You know what? Donald Trump was right.’ This is very, very sad day for the United States of America.”
