Trump will 100% deliver 'awesomely and bigly' – Obama's half brother

USA

President Barack Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, has reiterated his belief in the presidency of Donald Trump – the Republican candidate and President-elect of the United States of America.

He posted a message on social media platform, Twitter, ‘‘I am 100% sure that Trump will deliver awesomely and BIGLY! #africans4trump,’‘ one of his message read. The other was a picture of Donald Trump described as ‘‘The People’s President.’‘

Malik, actively campaigned for Mr Trump in the run-up to the November polls as Americans voted to choose a successor to Barack Obama. Trump defeated Democratic candidate and former US secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

Malik announced in July that he will be voting for Trump instead of his President Obama’s preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton. Trump later invited him to one of the presidential debates ahead of the polls.

Malik who holds American citizenship has described Trump as ‘‘Malcom X incarnated, the white Malcolm X.’‘ He also posted a picture of him in a handshake with a top member of the Trump team and former Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani.

He has repeatedly accused the current US president of neglecting his family, he once tweeted, ‘‘My two children died while my brother was President; not even simple condolence. Humiliated and demeaned.’‘

Malik and Barack are connected through the same father, Barack Obama Sr. Born in March 1958, he was born to Obama Sr and his first wife Kezia. He was raised in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
