In a shocking admission that is set to raise eyebrows among the current American president's clique, Malik Obama says he plans to travel back to Maryland, US, to back Mr Trump. The 58-year-old accountant, who lives in Kenya, says it was his "deep disappointment" in his half brother's administration that led him to to recently switch to support the "party of Lincoln". His half-brother, Barack Obama, has served as President of the US for the Republicans' main political rival, the Democrats, since 2009. But Mr Obama turned his back on the Democrats after the scandal over Hillary Clinton's use of private email service while she was President Obama's Secretary of State. He said: "She should have known better as the custodian of classified information." Mrs Clinton is hoping to clinch the US presidential title when the American population goes to the polls in November.
But Mr Obama said he is hedging his bets on billionaire businessman turned politician, Mr Trump. He told the 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." Mr Obama also blasted his half brother and Mrs Clinton over the killing of Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, who he says was his best friend.
