Debate guests: Trump takes Obama’s half-brother
Donald Trump is bringing President Barack Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother, Malik, to Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate, a campaign aide confirmed to CNN.
Hillary Clinton will be joined at Wednesday’s debate by two well-known billionaires who are backing her campaign, in what may be an attempt to rattle Republican nominee by su btly questioning his own net worth.
Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO and former Republican California gubernatorial candidate, and Mark Cuban, the outspoken billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, will both be Clinton’s guests at Wednesday’s third and final presidential debate.
Meanwhile, Trump is countering with Obama’s half-brother and a ghost from Clinton’s past: Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, who has accused the former secretary of state of “murdering” her son.
The New York Post first reported Trump’s invitation to Obama’s half-brother. The Post also reported that Malik Obama called now-deceased Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi one of his best friends — a potential source of awkwardness for Smith.
Malik Obama, who was born in Kenya and is an American citizen, voiced his support for Trump in July, saying he hoped to meet the Republican nominee. Trump’s feelings are mutual.
“I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Trump said Wednesday. “He gets it far better than his brother.”
