Donald Trump has been called in to campaign for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, making robo-calls for use in key swing states as well as possible public appearances in the final week before the election.

Newsmax was the first to report the news, citing sources close the Romney campaign confirming that Trump had agreed to make calls to help boost voter turnout in Ohio, Florida, Wisconsin and North Carolina. The billionaire and birther enthusiast is also trying to overcome scheduling conflicts in order to make campaign stops on Romney's behalf.

Trump endorsed Romney during the Republican primary race in February. "There are some things you just can't imagine happening," Romney said then, standing beside Trump at one of the real estate mogul's Las Vegas hotels. "This is one of them."

But since then, Romney has been reluctant to associate with Trump, who caused a headache for the campaign when he reignited his charge against the authenticity of President Barack Obama's birth certificate. In response, Romney merely offered that he did not agree with all of his supporters, but declined the opportunity to condemn Trump's birther conspiracies.

Just last week, Trump once again made headlines when he dropped a big "announcement," which was a $5 million offer to a charity of Obama's choice if the president publicly released his college transcripts and passport records.

For the Romney campaign to play the Trump card at the final stage, despite the public ridicule he so frequently incurs, is either a last-ditch effort rooted in desperation, or a sign that it sees little to lose in the six days that remain until Nov. 6.

The Romney campaign did not immediately return a request for comment.
