Donald Trump will bring a special guest to the final presidential debate tonight: President Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama.

Malik, an avowed Trump supporter, said he will join the GOP nominee as a guest at the third and final debate.

Malik announced this summer he would be supporting Trump in the general election.

“He appeals to me and also I think that he is down to earth and he speaks from the heart and he is not trying to be politically correct,” the president’s brother told Reuters at the time. “He’s just straight-forward.”

Malik said he had no issues with Trump’s controversial ban on Muslim immigrants.

“I’m a Muslim, of course, but you can’t have people going around just shooting people and killing people just in the name of Islam,” he said.

Brother Malik is 3 years older than Obama and was the best man at Obama’s wedding.
