Earlier today we learned that Donald Trump is bringing “Benghazi mom” Patricia Smith to the final presidential debate, but that is not his only surprise guest.
Trump has also invited President Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama, who has previously endorsed Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Malik Obama, who is also a U.S. citizen, says he is “excited” to attend the debate in Las Vegas and believes Trump “can make America Great Again.” Trump tells the New York Post his guest “gets it far better than his brother.”
From Time Magazine:
Malik told the Post he does not believe the women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct, asking, “Why didn’t they come forward before?” He found fault with Hillary Clinton’s work as Secretary of State, claiming that Muammar Gaddafi had been a friend and adding, “Check out the situation in Libya now.”
He says his most recent visit with his half-brother at the White House in 2015 was a “hands-off kind of thing, very businesslike, very formal.” Malik has expressed resentment that Barack Obama has not helped him with his foundation to support the family’s village of Kogelo, Kenya. In 2013, he unsuccessfully ran for governor of the western Kenyan county of Siaya.
