President Barack Obama’s half-brother is speaking out about the commander-in-chief’s “attitude” just days after saying he will vote for Donald Trump this November.
During an interview with “Good Morning Britain,” Malik Obama provided a glimpse into his relationship with his half-brother, claiming the 44th president has an “attitude.”
“[Barack] has this attitude like ‘I’m the president, I’ve made it, I’m the star here.’ I do understand that but I’m just expressing my opinion and how I feel,’ Malik Obama said.
The president’s half-brother then recalled when Obama was first elected in 2008, comparing what the world was like eight years ago to how things are now.
“Looking back, he made so many promises when he was running for president. He was riding on the promise of hope. We had a lot of excitement and we thought he would do a lot of things,” Malik Obama said.
“But look at the Middle East right now. It’s a mess. People are being killed all over the place; Berlin, Florida, France, Brussels. And look at the situation in Iraq right now,” he added, according to Britain’s Mirror newspaper.
In the same interview, Malik Obama said he has to book an appointment just to see his relative.
“I have to go through this woman and make a request, saying I would like to see him,” Malik Obama explained. “Then I just have to wait.”
Obama said he last requested to see the leader of the free world on June 15 and that he “only just got a response.”

The interview comes just days after Malik Obama told the New York Post that he plans to vote for Donald Trump in November. Obama currently lives in Kenya but used to live and is still registered to vote in Maryland.
