Obama’s half-brother says he’ll be voting for Donald Trump, then comes the blow to Barack!

Obama has endorsed Donald Trump for president.

No not President Obama, but his half-brother Malik Obama, and Trump couldn’t be happier.

“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Obama, who lives in the village of Kogelo in Kenya, told The New York Post. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”

He said he has been a long time Democrat but switched to “the party of Lincoln” after being disappointed by his brother’s presidency.

But the straw that broke the camel’s back was when Hillary Clinton wasn’t charged for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, the Post reported.

“She should have known better as the custodian of classified information,” he said.

Obama is also holding a grudge against his brother and Clinton over the killing of Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, who he considered a friend.

“I still feel that getting rid of Khadafy didn’t make things any better in Libya,” Obama, who told the Post he owns a “Make America Great Again” hat, said. “My brother and the secretary of state disappointed me in that regard.”

Social issues also pushed him to the right.

“I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me,” he told the Post.

Obama used to reside in Maryland and is still registered to vote in the state.

He said he plans on flying back in November just to cast his vote for Trump.

“Mr. Trump is providing something new and something fresh,” Obama told the Post.

There were happier times for the Obama brothers.

Malik was the president’s best man at his wedding to Michelle.

But the relationship started to fray when, according to Malik, the president wanted him to close his Barack H. Obama Foundation, a Virginia-based charity Malik used to fix his village.

“My brother didn’t help me at all,” he told the Post of the charity that came under fire in 2011 for not having tax exempt status at the time. “He wanted me to shut it down when I set it up. He hasn’t supported me at all.”

The president also didn’t lift a finger to help him as he ran for governor of a Kenyan county named Siaya in 2013.

“I don’t think politics is my thing,” he said. “Honestly, I’ll be happy when my brother is out of office, and I will finally be out of the limelight and be able to live like a human being.”
