Oh that Donald Trump knows how to tease us.
Two days after saying he would make an announcement Wednesday “bordering on gigantic” and that it could “possibly” influence the Presidential race, Trump took to Twitter a short while ago to say he’ll make his big revelation at noon EST and to pooh-pooh stories speculating about the nature of his big reveal.
Wrote Trump: “All predictions re: my 12 o’clock release are totally incorrect. Stay tuned!”
Moments before, he tweeted: “Story will be released today at 12 noon EST on Twitter and Facebook.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Trump’s so-called bombshell announcement regarding President Barack Obama is believed to be secret divorce papers that were filed by Michelle Obama and the President, according to a financial pundit linked to the tycoon.
It has been alleged that the Celebrity Apprentice host will reveal he has documents that show the First Lady and Barack Obama considered splitting up at one point during their 20 years of marriage, the Mail Online was first to report.
Trump announced Monday that he was going to make an announcement on Wednesday that is “bordering on gigantic” and could “possibly” influence the Presidential race. He added: It’s going to be very big. I know one thing – you will cover it in a very big fashion,” without elaborating further.
But Douglas Kass, who appears as a guest host on CNBC’s Squawkbox, sometimes alongside Trump, 66, appears to have let the cat out of the bag on his Twitter account.
He tweeted 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.”
When asked about Kass’ tweet, Trump’s spokesperson said: “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.”
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of an Obama divorce. Author Ed Klein claimed in his book The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, released early this year, that there was trouble in the Obamas’ marriage.
He wrote that Mrs. Obama prepared the divorce papers in 2000 for separation after he failed to win a House seat in Chicago. She was allegedly disgusted that he had risked their “stable and secure future.”
Luckily, in 2005, Obama’s campaign for a Senate seat in Illinois was successful and Klein claimed that restored Michelle’s faith in her husband.
Despite those accusations, the White House moved quickly to rubbish the claims, claiming that Klein has a history of making things up.
Trump has had issues with Obama in the past. He famously claimed he sent investigators to Hawaii in a failed attempt to prove that Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii, which would disqualify him from being President of the United States.
That fire was extinguished when Obama released the long form of his birth certificate last year.
