Donald Trump has offered $5 million to charity if President Barack Obama releases his college transcript and passport application by Halloween.

The billionaire developer made the announcement in a message beamed on social media on Wednesday afternoon, a day after saying he would be making “a major announcement” that could blow the election wide open.

Trump, who has endorsed Obama’s Republican rival Mitt Romney, said in a two and a half minute direct-to-camera speech posted on YouTube that he would sign the check within an hour of the president releasing the papers “to my satisfaction.”

He said the money would go to a charity that Obama chose himself — “inner city children in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants.”

Trump started the message saying that he was honored to have gotten Obama to release his long-form birth certificate “or whatever it was,” and said the president could go further to satisfy the public’s thirst for information about their chief executive.

“He’ll be doing a great service to the country if he does this. If he releases these records it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans — they’ll know something about their president; their president will become transparent like other presidents.”

Calling it “a deal that I don’t believe he can refuse,” Trump said he hopes he will have to sign the check.

“Frankly, it’s a check that I very much want to write, I absolutely would be the most happy of all if I did in fact make this contribution through the president to these charities.”

He said the president has until 5 p.m. on October 31 — six days before the election — to release the papers for the deal to be good

The Obama campaign had no immediate comment on Trump's video.
