Donald Trump Teases Obama Bombshell That 'Could Change Election' (Video)
The "Apprentice" star says he has information that is "bigger than anybody would know," but a number of commentators are doubtful and are offering their own comical guesses on what the reveal could be.
Is Donald Trump poised to drop bombshell on the presidential debate?
The star of NBC’s The Apprentice took to Twitter Tuesday to tease a big revelation about President Obama.
“Stay tuned for my big Obama announcement--- probably on Wednesday,” Trump tweeted. He added later “Everybody is asking about my announcement this Wednesday concerning Barack Obama---just wait and see!”
Trump later appeared on the Fox News Channel, where he was pressed for more details on his announcement. Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson asked if it would change the election, to which Trump responded “Possibly.” Asked if it would be a revelation about the president’s personal life or about how he governs, Trump said both.
“It’s all in one,” said Trump. “Everything. It’s very big. Bigger than anybody would know.”
Throughout the interview, Trump hedged on when he would reveal the news, saying possibly it would happen Wednesday. But a number of commentators remain doubtful of the business mogul’s big reveal, which seems reminiscent to his flirtation with a presidential run last year.
Several came up with mocking speculation of what the reveal might be.
The Washington Post’s Alexandra Petri: “After Lance Armstrong lost his titles, President Obama is actually the winner of the Tour de France, as the only person who has gotten on a bicycle without chemical assistance in the past ten years.”
