Donald Trump's campaign is bringing President Barack Obama's half-brother to the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday.
The campaign confirms that Obama's Kenyan-born half-brother Malik will be in the audience during the final showdown between Trump and rival Hillary Clinton.
Malik tells the New York Post that he's “excited to be at the debate” and says, “Trump can make America great again.”
Trump also tells the paper that Malik, “gets it far better than his brother.”
The candidates have been using their debate guests as a tool to try to get inside their rivals' heads. Clinton is bringing frequent Trump critic and billionaire Mark Cuban and Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman.
Trump invited to the most recent debate three of the women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually harassing or assaulting them years ago.
