The beef between retired United States President Barack Obama and his half-brother Malik Obama appears to be far from over if the latter’s latest tweet is anything to go by.
Their differences reportedly date back to the 1990s, with the most recent grudge playing out when Malik backed Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump over Obama’s choice Hillary Clinton in the 2016 US elections.
“Hillary Clinton is a liar and totally corrupt. What is her Clinton Foundation doing for Kenya if she loves Obama so much? Mr. Trump is a successful businessman he will make America great again. He is not heartless. I will not be humiliated anymore by anybody,” Malik said when asked why he chose to support Trump.
He also accused Obama of failing to support him even when he lost two children. “Why did he not support and write a forward for my book about his father Barack Obama Sr.? Why does he not support my Foundation set up in the name of his father Barack Obama Sr.? My two children died it was nothing to him. No condolences, nothing!”
In a tweet posted on Monday, Malik hit out at Obama for allegedly telling him he was broke even when he purchased a house worth $15 million.
“A rising tide lifts all boats but not in Barack Obama‘s case. Buys a $15 million home and tells me to my face that he’s broke. Slick as shit folks,” Malik tweeted.
However, online users told Malik to work for his own money and stop bothering his half-brother.
@jessienk said: “You are indeed broke not only financially but intellectually to display your ignorance in public. Let Americans be and be a man and a #Kenyan for that matter, hustle like many #Kenyans are doing.”
@Sipi_Jo tweeted: “Work fi yoh money bro, stop auditing other peoples hard work.”
@faithzp1 noted: “A good brother would never slander his brother for the amusement of others. He owes you nothing. It's not his fault you are failing at life. He's not your parent. We know he didn't tell you anything bc he probably doesn't even talk to you. Go away son of a 2nd wife.”
@unanka said: “When will you stop using your younger brother's name to enrich yourself. He owes you nothing, you can go tend to your farmland and leave him alone. I only wish it was a hundred million dollar home.”
@NebsHo tweeted: “It's his money. He can do with it as he wishes.”
