Donald Trump Refuses To Release His Own College And Passport Records

Source: Business Insider

While Donald Trump had no problem demanding that Barack Obama reveal details about his passport and time at college on Wednesday, the billionaire business mogul proved rather less forthcoming when it came to a request for information about himself.

Trump announced on Wednesday that he would donate $5m to a charity of Obama's choosing, if the president handed over his "college records and applications, and passport application and records".

But when the Guardian contacted Trump's office to ask for Trump's college and passport records, it was accused of "trying to be funny" and the request was deemed to be "stupid".

"I tell you what, he'll provide them to you when you provide yours to him," said Michael Cohen, executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to Trump, in what began as a friendly encounter.

38. but he did not actually go bankrupt - he basically just used it to make his bankers give him better

terms on his loan.

I wish i could pull that off with my mortgage.
But I am not of the privileged class. So i could never get away with it.

5. Donald Trump has become part of pop culture

It doubt he really makes business decisions anymore. He has made a name and an image and that is where his money comes from these days. The days of being a real estate powerhouse are behind him.

17. His name is his stock in trade.

He leases it out like a SnoCone machine. The more he can get his name in the public arena the more his stock rises. I don't think he even cares how it's used, as long as they spell it right.

I really don't think he has much money on account, just a steady income as much of the property that bears his name is not owned by him. That's why he backed off his presidential bid when financial disclosure became necessary. His true dollars and cents worth would have shattered the image.

9. He's a racist and hates being called out on it...so Donald, YOU ARE A RACIST PIG!!!

Trump cannot stand being called out for his bullshit - in that respect he and Mitt are kindred souls - but this is pure racism to the core. He wants these things to feed his fabricated narrative of the "uppity" Negro getting success through fraud, while he had to work sooooooooooooooooo hard for his investments in real estate to pay off on daddy's initial stake. Its typical right wing dog whistle bullshit.

I heard more of it today on St. Louis radio where that hateful wretch of a human being Dana Loesch is on the air spewing toxic fumes daily....she went on and on and on about a person with ALS being denied a position in the Obama campaign and how heartless that makes ALL Democrats and how clearly (without knowing any real facts mind you) it also make Obama such a hypocrite. Literally 5 solid minutes of "he could do the job as well as anyone, but they wouldn't hire him because he is handicapped"...over and over and over, with the usual smug right wing hate peddler tone and cadence. Fact-free. Opinion and spin presented as "truth" and then I had to turn it off.

Trump, Loesh, Hannity, O'Reilly and the rest of the hate brigade are all the same...

10. Transcripts?

You know who has never asked for the President's transcripts? Mitt (I spent one year at Stanford) Romney.

Many, not all, young LDS men spend two years in college, go to the MTC (Missionary Training Center) and go on their missions. They then return to college.

Mitt did just one year at Stanford, went on a mission and finished his undergrad work at BYU. He went on to get a combined MBA and law degree from Harvard. If he has ever offered his records for public review I am not aware of it.

So there's more to this. He didn't go on his mission to stay out of Vietnam. Staying at Stanford would have kept him out of the war.

If I had money I would set up a pretend RW organization and call his bluff then donate it to a cause Trump hates. I just want to see their heads explode. Plus passport records? WTF? How does that have any different info from the birth certificate. Does the POTUS even have a passport or need one?

Trump could care less about his trips to Europe, but his trips to Africa and Indonesia would be used to stoke racial fears.

As far as the passport, I am quite certain that Obama has a passport but I am just as certain that customs does not stop him at the gate to look at it.

So I would expect this headline:

Right???
