Celebrity businessman Donald Trump has extended his offer to give $5 million to charity in return for President Barack Obama’s college and passport records in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
As much of the East Coast was surveying the extensive storm damage Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted that he was extending the deadline on his initial offer from 5 p.m. Wednesday to 12 p.m. Thursday.
“Because of the hurricane, I am extending my 5 million dollar offer for President Obama’s favorite charity until 12PM on Thursday,” he wrote.
Trump unveiled the much-hyped offer last week when he said he would donate $5 million to any charity of Obama’s choice in return for the release of his complete college and passport applications and records.
Trump didn’t limit his post-storm tweeting to his offer: He also predicted the hurricane would be “good luck for Obama again — he will buy the election by handing out billions of dollars.”
