LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Refusing Trump offer ups suspicion

Say what you will about Donald Trump (and there's a lot to be said), but he has certainly figured out a creative way for President Obama to benefit from his college records and previous passport information ("Donald Trump says he'll drop political bombshell on Obama," Web, Monday). According to Mr. Trump's offer, all Mr. Obama has to do is release these records and become totally transparent by Wednesday, and the charity of his choice will receive an immediate check for $5 million.

Think about the good that these funds could do for cancer and AIDS research, Planned Parenthood or any other charity the Obamas hold dear. How could the president possibly say no to this offer? Unless, of course, there is something damning in those records that he desperately wants to keep hidden.

If so, then I guess the charity gravy train won't make it out of the station. If that's the case, won't it only compound the suspicion about Mr. Obama? Unless the president indeed has something to hide, how could he in good conscience stiff his favorite charities?
