Trump: Obama Should Release College Transcripts

Donald Trump is now demanding records of another period in President Obama’s life: his college years.

“I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?” Trump told the Associated Press in an interview.

Obama has not released his college transcripts. And Trump thinks there’s something strange about Obama’s academic success.

“I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can’t get into Harvard,” Trump said.

Trump is also now claiming that Obama’s birth certificate is “missing.”

“I’ve been told very recently … that the birth certificate is missing,” Trump said in a CNN interview yesterday. “I’ve been told that it’s not there or it doesn’t exist. And if that’s the case it’s a big problem.”

Trump would not reveal his sources for that information to CNN.
