Trump says he will release 'very big news' about Obama this week

Donald Trump says he has “very big news” about President Obama that could significantly alter the race for the White House just two weeks before Election Day.

“Something very, very big concerning the president of the United States,” Trump said Monday on "Fox and Friends." “It’s going to be very big. I know one thing — you will cover it in a very big fashion.”

Trump said he would “probably” release the bombshell sometime on Wednesday.

Trump, a real estate investor and surrogate for Mitt Romney, was a registered Democrat before changing his affiliation to Republican after Obama was elected in 2009.

Since then, he’s flirted with a presidential run, while advocating conspiratorial views that fall outside the mainstream of the Republican Party.

Trump has refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of the long-form birth certificate released by the White House, and frequently takes to Twitter to question the president’s citizenship.

Trump also says he believes President Obama will start a war with Iran before Election Day to secure a second term for himself.
