Malik Obama, the Kenyan half-brother of the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama has taken to twitter to say he has forgiven him.
Malik, in recent years has publicly called out Barack Obama and even went as far as supporting Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential elections.
A few hours ago, he tweeted ‘I forgive my brother @BarackObama and all those who have wronged me. So help me God
Malik Obama is a Muslim. He comes from Kenya, a country that has been racked by unrest in recent years and has been the target of terrorists from Somalia, who have fashioned themselves as Islamists. He has between three and 12 wives — he won’t say exactly how many — and, clearly, doesn’t adhere to traditional American family values, however you might define them.
But Malik Obama is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and he’s the half brother of the ex former U.S. president. He was an ardent supporter of Donald Trump.
It wasn’t always this way. Malik Obama was his half brother’s best man when Barack Obama married Michelle. Barack Obama performed the same role at one of Malik’s weddings.
Malik Obama had once claimed that he and his half brother shared a knack for leadership because it is “all in the genes.”
According to report, Malik soured on Barack. Part of the reason for that may be that he feels spurned by his successful and popular half brother.
“My brother didn’t help me at all,” Malik told the New York Post, referring to a foundation he started in their shared father’s name. “He wanted me to shut it down when I set it up. He hasn’t supported me at all.”
Inspired by Barack, Malik once tried to run for the position of governor in Siaya, the district of Kenya along the northern shores of Lake Victoria that his father hailed from. He got 1 percent of the vote. In the United States, Malik has worked mostly as an accountant for organizations in and around the D.C. area, including the American Red Cross, Lockheed Martin and Fannie Mae.
