Barack Obama’s half brother, Malik Obama, will be in the audience at the third Trump-Clinton debate, cheering on Donald Trump
Malik Obama — an American citizen who lives in Washington, DC, when he’s not in Kenya — says he will be a guest of Trump, the Republican nominee he supports for president.
NY Post (h/t Rob E) “I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik told The Post. “I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said. “He gets it far better than his brother.”
Malik also blasted Clinton’s performance as secretary of the State Department for exacerbating the chaos and violence in the Mideast. Malik said ousted Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy had been a good friend. “Check out the situation in Libya now,” he said.
Malik, who is three years older than Barack, said he last saw his sibling in August 2015 after the president had visited Kenya.“I went to the White House to say hello. I paid a courtesy call,” he said. But it wasn’t a very warm and loving reception. “As usual, it was a hands-off kind of thing, very businesslike, very formal,” Malik said.
NY Post Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”
