Trump’s representative denied such a meeting occurred.
Probably the most well famous ‘birther,’ Trump has spent years claiming to have investigations into President Barack Obama’s history underway and questioning the legitimacy of the commander in chief’s birth certificate.
Shortly before the election, his offer to give $5 million to charity if Obama gave him his academic records was the subject of much mockery in the press.
If his children did ask him to stop blasting the president before the election, they were ignored.
Trump was again in the news on election night when he went on a Twitter rant calling for ‘revolution’ because of the election results.
NBC anchor Brian Williams read some of Trump’s tweets on the air, while claiming he did so reluctantly, as he declared that the TV personality – whose show, Celebrity Apprentice, airs on NBC – had ‘driven well past the last exit to relevance.’
‘This is, as they say, out there and getting an airing tonight, so you might as well know about it,’ Williams groaned. ‘Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsible here, is tweeting tonight. Here’s a sampling…’
Williams read several of Trump’s tweets, which called the election a ‘total sham and a travesty.’
However, as it became apparent that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney would not win the election, the Donald’s tweets became more enraged, and more hyperbolic.
Trump began with: ‘Well, back to the drawing board!’
He quickly followed up with a call to revolution. The Trump wrote: ‘He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!’ – before deleting the tweet.
