Obama’s Half Brother Says He Will Vote for Trump
Malik Obama, the half-brother of President Barack Obama has sworn to vote for Trump, come November 2016. And it is not because of any personal feelings or connections, but largely because he believes that Trump represents all that he stands for.
He said that he was frustrated and disappointed with the Democratic Party as well as the Obama administration in their undertakings especially with same sex marriage and the role they played in ousting is good friend Muammar Gaddafi. “I still feel that getting rid of Gaddafi didn’t make things any better in Libya,” he said.
“I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same sex marriage and that appeal to me,” he said on a call from his village of Kogelo in Kenya. He plans to return to the U. S State of Maryland where he is registered as a voter and vote for his presidential candidate, Trump. He also used to be an accountant in Maryland.
He further stated that he is disappointed with the Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton and her use of a private e-mail server while she was the Secretary of State. “She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” he said.
He also said that Trump encouraged him more to vote for him as he speaks from the heart.
Malik and the President happen to share the same father but have different mothers. Their father moved from Kenya to the U.S in 1959 and was not present in most of Barack’s life. But Malik and is brother got in touch in 1985.

He promised the people loads of things and said that he would have direct line to the white house. In the end he only managed to gunner 2,792 votes, 140,000 votes behind the winner.
