In what is sure to be considered a political uproar, President Obama's half-brother explains why he would vote for Donald Trump.

Although President Obama has officially declared, "I'm with her," referring to Hillary Clinton, his half-brother Malik Obama says he's ready to "make America great again" and rocking with Donald Trump.

In an exclusive interview with the New York Post  "from his home in the rural village of Kogelo," Malik says his "deep disappointment" in his brother's political decision to back the former Secretary of State comes after hearing that the FBI will not be prosecuting Clinton for her use of private email servers.

Aside from Clinton's use of private email servers, Malik Obama's growing interest in Donald Trump seems to stem from his ideas on same-sex marriage, and the fact that President Obama and Clinton worked together to kill Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, a man Malik refers to as one of his best friends.
