Malik Obama, President Barrack Obama’s half-brother has stirred controversy after announcing that he will vote for Donald Trump.
According to report, Malik Obama blames his brother and Hillary Clinton of killing Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, who he said was his close friend.
He was quoted as saying by New York Post:
“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart.
“Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”
He also said Clinton’s use of a private email server also put him off adding that “She should have known better as the custodian of classified information.”
On the issue of same-sex marriage, he said President Obama and Clinton back the idea, adding that “I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me.”
His statement impressed the Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who celebrated. Through his Twitter and Facebook page Trump wrote:
“Wow, President Obama’s brother, Malik, just announced that he is voting for me. Was probably treated badly by president – like everybody else!
Tweeters and Facebook users have been reacting to claim that the outgoing US President Barack Obama’s Kenyan half-brother will vote for Donald Trump in the election in November.
Some of the reactions are in favour of Donald Trump while many slight Malik and Trump for their comments which according to them is brimming with ignorance:
Wow, even Hussein’s brother doesn’t trust him. He trusts TRUMP. All Bernie supporters MUST also vote for Trump.
John Smith “Was probably treated badly by president-like everybody else!”
Josh Jones Build the wall and put Barack Obama outside of it!
Against Malika and Trump:
Leonard Assaly: Trump, you’re so incredibly stupid. To even acknowledge this “endorsement” is pathetic on your part. You never have enough, eh Donny?
A user said: Wow, what the hell are you even trying to say with this sentence? More proof that you both employ and pander to imbeciles.
Stefan G. Bucher: And here I thought you were great at sniffing out somebody’s birthplace and nationality, sir. Malik Obama, actual Kenyan, not a U.S. citizen, so… not so much with the voting for you. Unless you’re running for President of Kenya, in which case I would support you whole-heartedly.
Ross McIntyre: Funny thing is, I do not remember hearing Obama ever insult anyone, even his enemies. On the other hand, that is what you are most know for politically.
Christina Harger: Hahahahahaha yeah, big old mean Barack Obama. You fool. My guess is that this nobody Malik wants some attention, just like you, and doesn’t care if it makes him look like a pandering idiot, just like you.
John Balogun: His voting for u because he thinks like u and because Obama won’t let him extort is people in Kenya….. Am from Africa so his fraud and he love money so nobody care if he vote for u
One User said: Wow. So some half-wit who happens to be related to Obama is going to vote for trump, so we all should? Either you fuckwits don’t have a “crazy uncle” or you are the crazy uncle. Either way, burn in hell.
Savannah Kimball : Uhmm, how exactly will a non-US citizen be voting for an American President? BTW, he barely has any relationship with Obama, just as Obama barely knew his father. Worlds apart people.
Anika Melvin: He can’t vote for you since you probably think he’s a Muslim too and you’ll be kicking him out if you become President. #DumpTrump.
Patricia Prokop: I wouldn’t brag about Malik Obama’s support if I were Donald Trump. Well, I guess Donald and Malik do have six wives between them.
Garry Kasparov: Reminder that it’s not worst thing in the world to be an only child.
labaddi interactive said: Siblings; why don’t we get to select them?
Ben Pearman: Of course Malik Obama is supporting you for POTUS, Donald:
A) he’s an anti-LGBT rights, bigot
B) he’s mad at President Obama and Secretary Clinton for killing his close friend, Muammar Gaddafi
C) he claims to support traditional marriage, and family values, such as having 3 wives
D) he’s jealous of the President’s political success and is salty because the President refused to support his bigoted political ambitions in Kenya
Another user said: You and Malik are two peas in a pod, Mr. Trump. You should be proud to have his support.
Tara Henry said: The brother that claims to be best friends with Moammar Khadafy? Trump = Khadafy. Bawaawawawa that’s impressive. Trump supports are true idiots.

Ronald Gordon: You still don’t think President Obama is a citizen born here in America but you believe his half brother is a citizen. How convenient.
