"I'll release my grades when Mitt releases his taxes."

Not really. I don't think the President needs to even acknowledge the existence of Trump (check out the French etymology of that name if you don't know it), but from the secure bastion of my armchair I get to think up retorts like that and imagine them in the President's mouth.

1. I think that would be an appropriate response, adding

"and I hope Mr. Trump will donate that five million
to a great charity. Lord knows that money needs to
be redistributed in a way that can help real people."

2. Obama released his taxes so I don't think they should be a trade in

"I'll release my grades when Mitt releases his birth certificate, taxes and grades" - that's mine.

4. I agree 100%. Trump should be taken to task for acting nutz in public, not coddled and

tolerated. Jesus! What's happening in this country??

3. Interesting

http://encyclopedia.jrank.org/TOO_TUM/TRUMP_1_O_Fr_trompe_.html

TRUMP (1) (O. Fr. trompe) , originally the name of a musical instrument, of which " trumpet " is a diminutive; the term is now chiefly used in the sense of the sound of a trumpet, or a sound resembling it, such as is' made by an elephant . It has been usually accepted that the Romanic forms (cf . Span. and Port. trompa) represent a corruption of Latin tuba, tube . On the other hand a distinct imitative or echoic origin is sometimes assigned . (2) In the sense of a playing card belonging to the suit which beats all other cards of other suits for the period during which its rank lasts, "trump" is a corruption of " triumph." The name was first used of a game of cards, also known as " ruff," which was the parent of the modern game of whist . There are traces in English of an early confusion with a term meaning to deceive or trick, cf . " trumpery," properly deceit, imposture, hence idle talk, gossip, now chiefly used as an adjective, worthless, trivial . This is an adaptation of French tromper, to deceive, which, according to the generally received explanation, meant " to play on the trumpet," se tromper de quelqu'un being equivalent to play with a person, hence to cheat .

5. I would ask him to prove that he even has five million dollars.

I'll bet he doesn't.
