In the fall of 2012, Donald Trump shared a "big surprise": an offer to donate $5 million to the charity of Obama's choice if the president released "his college records and applications" and "his passport applications and records." Fast forward roughly three years, and there's no $5 million on the table, but there is a call for passport records—this time, Trump's. The Guardian reports that it asked the GOP candidate's campaign to release his long-form birth certificate and those passport records and was denied, "despite the Guardian providing both a fax number and a full postal address." The newspaper says the campaign wouldn't comment.

But the war of words between Trump and Univision is heating up. The network this week cited "his recent, insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants" as the reason for cutting all ties with Trump and the Miss Universe Organization, and on Thursday, Trump's lawyer said his client plans to sue the network for "hundreds of millions" over its decision to drop the pageant. Now NBC News reports Trump yesterday sent a letter to network president Randy Falco stating the following: "Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use Trump National Doral, Miami - its golf courses or any of its facilities."
