Announcement: Donald Trump said that he has 'gigantic' news about the President which he will announce on Twitter Wednesday

Donald Trump announced today that he has a 'gigantic' bombshell about President Obama that he will reveal on Wednesday.

The billionaire real estate baron told Fox & Friends this morning that he had 'something very, very big concerning the president of the United States'.

'It's going to be very big. I know one thing- you will cover it in a very big fashion,' he added.

Trump wasn't giving away any clues, however, but only went on to say that it could 'possibly' play a role in the election.

He said h is waiting to Tweet the 'large, bordering on gigantic' news 'sometime probably Wednesday'.

Trump has been one of the most outspoken critics of the President and has also threatened to run against him.

He has also toured New Hampshire and said very clearly that he was seriously contemplating a presidential run.

Later he became something of a political touchstone for the various Republican candidates and eventually endorsed Mitt Romney.

He has been extremely vocal as a so-called birther conspiracy theorist, claiming that Obama was born outside of the United States making him unable to run for President.

He believes that his Hawaiian birth certificate is fake or non-existent.

In April 2011, Trump announced that he paid to have a team of investigators to Hawaii to truly delve into the issue.

In response, President Obama released the long form edition of his birth certificate after spending years refusing to do so.

'Normally, I would not comment on something like this...I've got other things to do,' Obama said at the time.

This is the second time in as many months that Trump has said that he has a big surprise that would be damaging to the President, though the last time he said so - in the days leading up to the Republican National Convention - nothing came of it.

Trump's announcement comes the same day as another surprise: a mysterious website called 'The October Surprise' says that it will release documents at 5.30pm on Monday.

Very little is known about the creators of the site, the type of documents that they are referring to, or even their intended target.

The Twitter bio for the site simply reads: 'One of your presidential candidates isn't being honest with you. Stay tuned to find out which one it is.'
