Obama is not happy about this one.
Barack Obama’s older half-brother, Malik Obama, has once again expressed his endorsement of Donald Trump’s potential return to the White House. On a recent occasion, Malik Obama shared a picture of himself wearing a cap with the phrase “F Biden” on a social media platform known as X. In an interview with Breitbart News, he affirmed his full support for Trump’s candidacy in the upcoming 2024 elections. Responding to a question about his commitment to Trump, Malik Obama stated unequivocally, “Yes, I am.”
According to Newsmax, Malik Obama further took to Twitter to share the article from Breitbart News and appended the words “MAGA 2024!” to his tweet. Recent polls indicate that Trump holds a substantial lead as the primary contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
While his brother was in office, Malik Obama refrained from discussing politics. However, he broke his silence and openly expressed his support for Trump in 2016. In his conversation with Breitbart, Malik Obama explained his decision to don the “F Biden” hat, stating that he identifies as a Republican rather than a Democrat and does not endorse what he referred to as “sloppy Joe.”
In his remarks to Breitbart News, 65-year-old Malik Obama disclosed that he has not had recent communication with his 62-year-old brother, Barack Obama. During Barack Obama’s presidency, Malik Obama used to visit the White House at least twice a year. However, he currently maintains a strained relationship with his brother, describing him as a disappointment who underwent a significant personality change after attaining power. Malik Obama shared his perception that his brother’s ego swelled after gaining prominence and likened him to someone who believes he is divine.
Malik Obama’s public endorsement of Trump in November 2016 had repercussions in Kenya. Residents of President Obama’s ancestral village, along with other relatives, chose to curse Malik Obama following his support for Trump. Given that Barack Obama’s father was born in Kenya, the president was held in high esteem in the country. In October of the same year, Malik Obama was a guest of Trump in Las Vegas during the final debate between Trump and the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.
