Obama's Brother Will Be at Tomorrow's Debate, Cheering On Donald Trump

Not everyone in the Obama family believes that Republican nominee Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States.  

At tomorrow night's presidential debate in Las Vegas, Trump will be joined by Barack Obama's half-brother Malik Obama, who supports the New York businessman.  Malik, an American citizen who lives in Washington, D.C. when he's not in Kenya, says he will be a guest of Trump.

“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.”

Speaking to British TV in July, Malik said that Barack "has this attitude like 'I'm the president, I've made it, I'm the star here.'"

"Looking back, he made so many promises when he was running for president... He was riding on the promise of hope. There was so much excitement and we thought he would do so many things.  But look at the Middle East right now. It's a mess. People are being killed all over the place; Berlin, Florida, France, Brussels. And look at the situation in Iraq right now."

Earlier this year, it was reported that Malik would be flying to the United States in November to vote for Trump.  He reiterated his choice in the interview.  

"Something is going on with Hilary that I don't like," he said. "Donald on the other hand, he speaks his mind and is straight forward.  And remember, the Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln - who freed slaves and freed the black man."
