In a 2012 video made by Trump, he refers to Obama as “the least transparent president in the history of this county.” In this same video, he offers Obama $5 million dollars to release his college records by October 31st, 2012.
After Trump made the demand for Obama’s college records, a journalist from the Guardian asked if Trump would release his own college records. Trump’s office responded deeming the request “stupid.” Moreover, his attorney, Michael Cohen stated in response to the request: “But what’s your point? Mr Trump’s not the president of the United States and he’s not running for the presidency.”
When Trump ran for president, he had a change of heart on the importance of seeing college records. Trump’s office stated that Trump would not be releasing his own transcripts.
