A report Tuesday in Britain’s Daily Mail said the “surprise” Donald Trump is scheduled to announce Wednesday is that Michelle and Barack Obama once seriously considered getting a divorce.
But Trump Wednesday morning said none of the speculation about the subject of the announcement was correct.
“All predictions re: my 12 o’clock release are totally incorrect. Stay tuned!” he tweeted.
The Daily Mail had said Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who also appears on CNBC’s talk show called “Squawkbox,” tweeted “High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.”
Kass and Trump both appear on the talk show at times.
Kass is an author, found and president of Seabreeze Partners Management.
Author Ed Klein in his book earlier this year made claims about divorce papers, and the White House “rubbished the allegations” the report said.
At the Trump organization, a top aide to Trump says the billionaire will reveal a secret about Barack Obama on Wednesday on Twitter that could be of interest to “millions of Americans.”
The confirmation came today to WND from Mike Cohen, Trump’s assistant, who said that only three people know what Trump will reveal: Trump, his wife, and himself.
But he also said that the revelation “has nothing to do with drug usage,” in contradiction to several published reports today that said Trump will expose claims Obama dealt drugs during college.
Trump said in a tweet:”Everybody is asking about my announcement this Wednesday concerning Barack Obama – just wait and see!”
Trump, who previously and very publicly challenged Obama’s eligibility to be president, told “Fox & Friends” Monday he has “something very, very big concerning the president.”
Fox host Gretchen Carlson asked if it would change the election, and he said: “Possibly. It’s very big – bigger than anybody would know.”
Among those reporting that the revelation is about drugs was the Radaronline blog.
The blog alleged a man claiming to be a “pal” to Obama had contacted GOP operatives to go public with his claim that Obama used and sold cocaine in college. The report said the GOP didn’t want anything to do with the claim.
WND reported months ago a prediction from Trump that Obama would start a war with Iran solely to help his chances of getting re-elected.
At the time, he told Greta Van Susteren of Fox News: “Yes, I believe that we will end up in a war with Iran because I think Obama views that as politically good for him. … I have said for a year and a half that in the end, somewhere before the election we will end up in a form of war with Iran, and I think he’s doing it for political reasons.”
Appearing somewhat incredulous, Van Susteren said: “You’re saying that the president is really thinking about doing the unthinkable for political advantage for himself, taking us to war. I think most people would say that’s beyond, that’s beyond fair.”
Trump responded: “I don’t think it’s beyond. That’s my opinion, and let’s see what happens. I hope that doesn’t happen.”
WND reported that Iranian sources have confirmed a deal between the Obama administration and a representative of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei over Tehran’s nuclear program.
The WND report revealed that the deal is for Iran to halt part of its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of many U.S. sanctions against the Islamic regime.
A day after WND’s report, by Reza Kahlili, the New York Times followed up with a story reporting Obama administration officials had confirmed the U.S. and Iran had agreed to one-on-one talks in what could be “a last-ditch diplomatic effort to avert a military strike on Iran.”
Obama dismissed the Times report, but according to an analysis of his statement’s in Monday night’s presidential debate by the London Guardian, he seemed to open the door for those exact discussions.
“I’m pleased that you now are endorsing our policy of applying diplomatic pressure and potentially having bilateral discussions with the Iranians to end their nuclear program,” Obama told Romney.
The report also quoted Mark Fitzpatrick, a former State Department expert working at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, who said, “I have been hearing for some time that they had been having private discussions, and now it is starting to become public.”
As recently as a few weeks ago, Trump renewed his effort to obtain Obama’s sealed records.”
He suggested Obama released his documents in exchange for Romney’s tax returns, which Democrats have been demanding.
“I’ve said it a lot, that if Obama opened up his records, maybe Mitt should give his returns,” Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “That would be a great trade. I guarantee it would be a really wonderful trade.”
Trump offered a list of sealed documents he believes Obama should present for the deal.
“I’d like to see his college records,” he said. “I’d like to see his college applications. I’d like to see something about his past, which many people know nothing about. I’d like to see his passport records, which are sealed.”
