Barack Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother Malik will be in audience during Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas, according to reports. Although nobody seems to know why.
The New York Post first reported Trump’s invitation to Malik Obama, who in July said he would vote for the Republican candidate because he “comes across as a straightforward guy.”
“I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik told The Post.
A Trump campaign aide confirmed to CNN that Malik will attend the debate.
It is not clear why Trump decided to bring Obama’s half-brother to the final debate.
Trump is also bringing Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, who has blamed Clinton for the death of her son.
Hillary Clinton will be joined by two billionaires who are supporting her campaign: Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO and Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks.
Barack Obama was born in Hawaii to an American mother and a Kenyan father who left when he was two years old.
Malik has lived in Washington since the mid-80s but ran for office in Kenya in 2013. However, he failed to become governor of Siaya county.
