PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, says he will vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump in the US election in November because he likes the candidate and he is unhappy with his brother’s leadership.
Malik, who is in his 50s, told Reuters by phone from Obama’s ancestral home of Kogelo in western Kenya that he supports Trump’s policies, especially his focus on security.
“He appeals to me and also I think that he is down to earth and he speaks from the heart and he is not trying to be politically correct. He’s just straightforward,” he said. …
Trump’s stance against Muslims coming in to the United States was understandable even to Muslims like himself, Malik said. “I’m a Muslim, of course, but you can’t have people going around just shooting people and killing people just in the name of Islam,” he said.
