Donald Trump announced today that he has a ‘gigantic’ bombshell about President Obama that he will reveal on Wednesday.
The billionaire real estate baron told Fox & Friends this morning 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,’ he added.
Trump wasn’t giving away any clues, however, but only went on to say that it could ‘possibly’ play a role in the election.
He said h is waiting to Tweet the ‘large, bordering on gigantic’ news ‘sometime probably Wednesday’.
Trump has been one of the most outspoken critics of the President and has also threatened to run against him.
Later he became something of a political touchstone for the various Republican candidates and eventually endorsed Mitt Romney.
He has been extremely vocal as a so-called birther conspiracy theorist, claiming that Obama was born outside of the United States making him unable to run for President.
While The October Surprise is keeping both candidates in the dark, Trump was not as impartial.
The billionaire businessman-turned-reality star and Obama have a barbed relationship on both sides. Trump repeatedly called Obama ‘the worst president ever’, and Obama referred to Trump as a ‘carnival barker’ once he released the long form birth certificate.
The President also spent a portion of his speech at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner in April 2011 taking jabs at Trump.
‘Now, I know that he’s taken some flak lately, but no one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than the Donald,’ Obama said in the speech.
‘And that’s because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter –- like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac?’
Over the past year, Trump’s birther rhetoric has died down significantly and he has focused his attention to the Republican primary race, eventually supporting Romney’s bid.
Though his endorsement came in May, the latest endorsement from the Trump clan came just three days ago. Donald’s daughter Ivanka is married to Jared Kushner, the owner of The New York Observer. While there was no mention of the paper’s ties to the real estate mogul, it did surprise some to see the paper reverse it’s 2008 endorsement of Obama and come out in favor of Romney just three days ago.
