Donald Trump made his announcement Wednesday and asked President Obama to release his college records. In addition, the announcement also reveals some interesting divorce papers that Trump uncovered of Barack and Michelle Obama. The information came from a well respected financial pundit with links to Trump.
It is alleged that the eccentric real estate tycoon will claim that the documents show the First Lady and the President were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously considering splitting up, according to the Daily Mail.
Trump set the hare running on Monday by claiming that he was set to make an announcement on Wednesday that would be ‘bordering on gigantic’ and that it would ‘possibly’ change the Presidential race.
The billionaire told Fox & Friends that he had “something very, very big concerning the president of the United States.” “It’s going to be very big. I know one thing- you will cover it in a very big fashion.”
Trump declined to elaborate, but today an investor who appears on the same business talk show as him claimed to have more details.
Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talk show “Squawkbox” where Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: “High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.”
Interviews with both Kass and Trump appeared on the show’s website this morning.
Kass is an author, the founder and President of Seabreeze Partners Management and has also appeared in newspapers including the Wall St Journal and the New York Times.
The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Klein had a history of making things up.
Trump also has a questionable record when it comes to his own allegations, most notably being a leading “birther,” so-called because he believes Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii, thus disqualifying him from being President of the United States.
