Barack Obama's half-brother says he plans to vote for Donald Trump

Barack Obama's Half Brother Is Apparently a Big Donald Trump Fan

President Barack Obama's half-brother is apparently voting Republican in this year's upcoming U.S. election.

The New York Post reports Malik Obama, who currently lives in Kenya, is a big Donald Trump fan.

He reportedly told The 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."

"We cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore," Trump said during his speech at the Republican National Convention.

Trump responded on Twitter with: "Wow, President Obama's brother, Malik, just announced that he is voting for me. Was probably treated badly by president-like everybody else!"

"We cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts," FBI director James Comey said.

Malik Obama said the FBI's decision not to charge Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton with a crime over her email server scandal was the tipping point that led him to support his half-brother's rival party.
