When there is the dead heat going on between President Barak Obama and his rival Mitt Romney in the ongoing presidential campaign leading up to the election on November 6, Donald Trump is threatening the President with divulgement of his past secrets.

According to various media reports, Donald Trump, an Obama foe and well-known U.S. businessman and TV personality, on October24, said in a You Tube video if the President releases his college and passport records, he would donate five million dollars to any charity of the President’s choice.

“If Barak Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications and his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice…a cheque immediately for $ 5 million,” said Donald Trump, a Mitt Romney supporter. He also mentioned a condition that the said records have to be released “to my satisfaction.” He gave the president a deadline of 5:00 p.m. on October 31. The tone of this ultimatum verges on to blackmailing and even racism.

He termed President Obama “the least transparent president in the history of this country.” “If he releases these records it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans,” he added.

For quite some time, along with some “birthers” (who believe that Barak Obama’s presidency is not valid because he is not a U.S.-born citizen), Tea Party members, and sensationalist gossip magazines, Donald Trump has been questioning President Obama’s birth certificate issued by the State of Hawaii. He strongly believes that the certificate is not legitimate and that the President was born in Kenya and not in the U.S. The President’s father was a Kenyan student studying at the University of Hawaii where his American mother was also a student. She had become pregnant by him at that time and Barak Obama was born. 

Significance of President Obama Being a Non-U.S. Citizen at the Time of His Birth

For sheer argument’s sake, let’s say that President Barak Obama was not a U.S. citizen by birth, what is the significance of it? Although it is not believable (because Obama being a lawyer would be so stupid as to stand for election for presidentship in the first place knowing that he was a non-U.S. citizen at his birth), yet if it is proven beyond doubt that the President was not a citizen by birth, his 2008 eligibility for U.S. presidentship would have to be made null and void generating the unprecedented constitutional crisis in the history of the U.S. The U.S. Congress and/or the Supreme Court would have to decide on it. Not only that, his presidentship would also be invalid resulting in illegality of whatever official edicts, orders and directives President Obama gave, whatever agreements he made with other countries, and whatever actions – including appointments to different positions -- he took so far. This year’s election would also be invalid. In the last four years, congress men and women and senators of the Republican Party who cooperated with President Obama in passing laws and agreements would also be at fault.

It would take months, if not years, to right all these wrongs. Are the right thinking American people ready to go all the way?
