Trump: Obama's rejection proves he's foreign-born

On Thursday, real estate mogul Donald Trump responded to President Barack Obama's lack of transparency in a videouploaded on Mr. Trump's YouTube channel. Pres. Obama ignored Trump's week-long challenge to release college and passport records to prove that the commander-in-chief was indeed born in Hawaii and not in Kenya.
In the video, Trump said:
President Obama has just missed the deadline and now a charity of his choice will not be receiving $5 million or, as I stated, potentially much more than $5 million. All the president had to do was give simple documentation - simple paper - a few pages - and a charity would have gotten $5 million or substantially more.
Trump also attacked the president for not releasing more information about the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi, Libya which led to the deaths of four Americans.
Last week, the billionaire and former presidential candidate had offered to donate at least $5 million to the charity of the president's choosing for disclosing some personal records. The YouTube announcement drew close to 7 million views in about a week.
When Obama took office in January 2009, he signed an executive order sealing documents from his past which fueled speculations that he was hiding politically damaging information about his past.
