Obama’s half brother says vote for Trump

Nairobi, July 26 (IANS) US President Barack Obama’s half brother has said that he would vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump in the presidential election this November.

Trump is “down-to-earth” and “cool”, but Barack Obama has neglected his family since taking office in 2009, Malik Obama told reporters by phone from the western Kenyan village of Kogelo, President Obama’s ancestral home.

Malik Obama, born in Hawaii, has dual citizenship. He said he has voted in US elections since the 1980s.

“This Trump guy is a really cool guy. 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. It is not like someone is prompting him,” said Malik.

He also praised Trump’s emphasis on national security, saying: “Trump is so much concerned about security and he wants to make America great.”

He said Trump’s stance against Muslims coming to the US was understandable.

“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.

Malik, who was also the best man at Barack Obama’s wedding, accused his sibling for not having done more for his Kenyan families and the African country.

Last year President Obama paid his first visit to Kenya, but did not visit his extended family in Kogelo.

“This is the time we need him most, not when he is out of the White House,” said Malik.

“I still love my brother, but it still baffles me that when he came to Kenya he told us that he can’t associate too much with family back home just because he is the president of the United States. It does not make any sense at all,” he added.

  1. This President when it comes to radical Islam and Jihad attacks in the US and around the world, does not want to admit it. He is pretty much in line with the very many “Taqqiya” experts who never accept responsibility and choose to blame every one else, other than themselves.

    The strategy is very clear, Do not ever admit there is a problem with themselves, or with their ideologies, instead always claim victim status. Hence, after 1400 years of Jihad attacks that have left 280 million people dead and counting they are not to be blamed, as they are innocent victims of terror.

    At the very least Trump is calling a spade a spade.
