President Barack Obama’s half-brother Malik will attend the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday night as a guest of the Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Malik told The New York Post on Tuesday night that he’s excited to be joining Mr Trump and that he still supports his bid to the White House.

“I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik,” Mr Trump told the outlet. “He gets it far better than his brother.”

The 58-year-old, who lives in Washington DC when he isn’t visiting Kenya, says that he doesn’t believe the many women accusing Mr Trump of sexual assault. He even questioned, “Why didn’t they come forward before?”

Malik is also a critic of the mainstream media and Hillary Clinton’s performance at the State Department. He says that the former Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy is a good friend of his, “Check out the situation in Libya now.”

The third debate before the general election will take place at 9:00pm Eastern on Wednesday from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.
