Donald Trump Plans Big Obama Announcement – Should you Care?

The anticipation was high as many waited for Donald Trumps major Obama announcement – no word yet. One scenario for Trump’s decision to find yet another way to insert his way into this presidential campaign is his foresight that the presidential debate polls would give Obama an edge over Romney.

On Tuesday afternoon, just hours before the final presidential debate, Trump insists that he has a major announcement about President Barack Obama to make Wednesday that could shake up the presidential race.

Trump remained coy when pressed for details, only saying that the news would have an impact and suggesting that it would be delivered via the social media site Twitter.

“I do have something that’s very big,” he said during an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday. “It’s about President Obama.”

“The Donald” demurred when asked if he could provide any hints about what he might be divulging, saying, “No, but tomorrow you’ll see.”

During another interview, Democratic operative and Daily Beast columnist Bob Shrum mocked Trump’s claims over Obama’s residency.

“Will it make any more sense than birtherism?” Shrum asked about Wednesday’s announcement.

“I think it’s going to make a lot of sense,” Trump shot back. “I think birtherism makes a lot of sense to a lot of people to be honest with you. A lot of people agree with it and a lot of people like me very much because of that. All we want is the truth, Bob.”

“Hey, Bob,” he later added, “guys like you are what set this country so far behind. We’re now a laughingstock throughout the world.”

“No, Donald, you’re a laughingstock,” Shrum said.

Donald seems to be the only one not in on the joke.
