(USA TODAY) -- Donald Trump has an offer for President Obama.

Trump -- who continues to question whether Obama was born in the United States -- says he will give $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice, if the president release his college and passport applications and records.

The business mogul, and high-profile supporter of Republican candidate Mitt Romney, made the offer in a much-ballyhooed video released today.

He continues to dispute Obama's citizenship, despite the 2010 release showing that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1961.

Obama aides quickly pointed to Trump's outspoken support of Romney.

"Given Trump is one of his biggest supporters, this is a question best directed at the Romney team in Boston," said Obama campaign spokesperson Jen Psaki.

There's a deadline for the release, Trump said: By 5 p.m. on Oct. 31 (also known as Halloween).

"If he releases these records it will end the question and indeed the anger of many Americans," Trump says in the video. "They'll know something about their president. Their president will become transparent like other presidents."
