It has previously been said that US President Barack Obama’s step brother will be voting for Republican Donald Trump in next months presidential elections.
This news elicited mixed reaction from Kenyans, most of whom felt it was a betrayal to Obama to vote for a person in a rival party.
Politics kweli ni ngumu. And now it turns out that indeed Malik will be casting his vote for the controversial Republican candidate.
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.
Anyway it turns out that tonight, Malik Obama will be joining Donald Trump in the final presidential debate to be held in Las Vegas, U.S.
According to multiple reports, Malik is excited to be accompanying Trump to the 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 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?”
