Donald Trump’s “very big” announcement about President Barack Obama may involve never-before-seen divorce papers of the president and his wife Michelle Obama, according to Douglas Kass, a respected investor and financial pundit with ties to Trump.

Kass alleges the real estate tycoon “will claim the documents show the First Lady and the President were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously considering splitting up,” The Daily Mail reports.

What information may actually be included in the divorce papers that may or may not exist, such as reason for divorce, is a mystery.

Trump began teasing the major announcement via his official Twitter account on Monday, posting “Stay tuned for my big Obama announcement.” He followed that tweet up with another telling his followers to “…just wait and see!”

 

 

Trump later went on “Fox and Friends” and said his Obama announcement was “very big.”

“Bigger than anybody would know,” he added, saying it could possibly change the election.

Kass on Tuesday also took to Twitter and told his 48,000 followers: “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.”

 

The Daily Mail has more details:

When asked about the Tweet, Trump spokeswoman Holly Lorenzo told MailOnline: ‘All we know is that he is going to announce it on his Twitter and Facebook accounts tomorrow. I don’t know what time it will be, that’s all I know.’

Kass is an author, the founder and President of Seabreeze Partners Management and has also appeared in newspapers including the Wall St Journal and the New York Times.

The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Klein had a history of making things up.

In “The Amateur,” Klein makes a number of allegations against the president. Most notably in this case that Michelle Obama prepared divorce papers following his significant 2000 loss in a race for a House seat in Chicago.

The book alleges that Michelle Obama was upset that her husband put their “stable and secure future” at risk.

“The book claims their marriage – in its eighth year at the time – was ‘on the rocks’ with Mr Obama so depressed some of his friends feared he was suicidal,” The Daily Mail reports.

When Obama eventually won the Illinois Senate race in 2005, the future First Lady’s faith in her husband was restored, according to Klein.

Many immediately mocked and or dismissed Trump’s big announcement given his status as a leading “birther.” The host of “The Apprentice” believes Obama was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, making him ineligible to be president of the United States. He even reportedly went as far to sent investigators to the Aloha State, but the evidence did not confirm his suspicions.

President Obama also released his long form birth certificate in 2011.

There were also some rumors that Trump’s announcement may have something to do with a man who claims he was a close friend of Barack Obama during college. RadarOnline.com reports the man is ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college.

Trump’s people quickly denied that the real estate mogul’s announcement was about cocaine.
