Barack Obama’s Half-Brother To Cheer for Team Trump at Vegas Debate

By Richard Johnson | 7:44 am, October 19, 2016

President Obama’s Kenyan-born, half-brother Malik will be in the audience in Las Vegas Wednesday night when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in their third and final debate.

Malik — 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.

“I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik told The New York Post.

“I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said.

“He gets it far better than his brother.”

Malik agrees with Trump that the mainstream media is biased, and he dismisses the women who claim Trump kissed or groped them without their permission.

“I don’t believe them,” Malik said.

“Why didn’t they come forward before?”

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.

The Barack H. Obama Foundation — Malik named it after his and the president’s father — would be better able to help the family’s village of Kogelo, Kenya, “if I had gotten the support I should have gotten from my brother,” Malik 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.

Though Trump held a press conference with three Bill Clinton accusers before the second debate in St. Louis, Malik said he is not participating in any such conference in Las Vegas.
