The next Obama family reunion is likely to be an awkward one — at least between the president and his half-brother Malik. Malik was likely already on Barack's bad side after he recently revealed that the President didn't even write large portions of his 2004 book, Dreams from My Father.
It doesn't look as though a brotherly reconciliation is in the immediate future as the lifelong Democrat has announced his support for Donald Trump along with some harsh criticism for his brother and Hillary Clinton.
President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother, Malik Obama, plans to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
A longtime Democrat, Malik Obama, 58, told the New York Post that he likes Mr. Trump “because he speaks from the heart.”
“‘Make America Great Again’ is a great slogan,” he said. “I would like to meet him.”
Malik Obama said he was “deeply disappointed” in his brother’s foreign policy, pointing to the decision to depose Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
“I still feel that getting rid of Gadhafi didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.”
He also cited presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information as secretary of state.
“She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” Malik Obama said.
Although Malik Obama currently lives in Kenya, he resided in Maryland for years and is still registered to vote in the Old Line State. Malik Obama hopes to meet Mr. Trump when he returns to cast his ballot in November — and likely hopes to avoid his brother while in town.
