Donald Trump, you trolled America once again.
The long-awaited announcement by the flamboyant real estate mogul at noon Wednesday turned out to be just a return of birtherism — the conspiracy theory that the president is not an American citizen — combined with a whole lot of money.
"We know very little about our president," Trump says from behind a desk in a video just released on his YouTube channel. "I am very honored in having gotten him to release his long form birth certificate or whatever it might be... [Now] I have a deal I don't believe he can refuse."
Trump goes to say if Obama releases his college records and applications, as well as his passport records, Trump will give $5 million to a Chicago charity of the president's choice.
The insta-reaction to the supposedly bombshell announcement from a number of users on Twitter: "BORING."
