(Newser) – You're not going to believe this, but President Obama has completely ignored Donald Trump's very important $5 million giveaway deadline. "Now a charity of his choice will not be receiving five (pause) million (pause) dollars," Trump said in a video posted on Facebook and spotted by Politico. "This is a very, very sad day for the United States of America."

Trump accused Obama of spending "millions of dollars in legal fees to keep his records secret," instead of taking Trump's generous offer. He suggested that the money could have gone to "relatives of the victims of Benghazi, which I think would be an appropriate situation." And he expressed his conviction that "someday, those papers will come out, and people will say, 'You know what? Donald Trump was right.'" No word yet on whether Trump intends to take up Stephen Colbert's offer to him. (Read more Donald Trump stories.)
