Obama half-brothers disagree on attending Presidential debate

US president Barack Obama's half-brother has said he does not agree with the decision by another half-brother to attend the final presidential debate as a guest of the Donald Trump campaign.

Mark Obama Ndesandjo said: "I love my brothers, but no one member represents the Obamas."

The Trump campaign said Mr Obama's Kenyan-born half-brother Malik would be in the audience for the showdown on Wednesday between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The three men share the same father but have different mothers.

Mr Ndesandjo is an American businessman who has lived in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen for about 15 years.

He said: "Others in my family and I do not support my brother Malik's position on Mr Trump."

Malik Obama supports Mr Trump's candidacy.
