President Barack Obama’s half-brother says he's voting for Donald Trump — fed up with his relative's politics and encouraged by the Republican nominee's "fresh and new" approach, the New York Post reports Sunday. 

"I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart," Kenyan-born Malik Obama, tells the Post. "'Make America Great Again' is a great slogan. I would like to meet him."

Malik Obama told the Post he's coming to the United States to vote in November; he's registered as a Democrat in Maryland, where he used to live and work, the Post notes.

"Mr. Trump is providing something new and something fresh," he declared.

Malik Barama and his younger half-brother share a father, Barack Obama Sr., who left Kenya in 1959 when Malik was a year old and enrolled at the University of Hawaii, where he met and married the president’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.

Malik Obama tells the Post his "deep disappointment" with his half-brother came when FBI Director James Comey recommended not prosecuting Hillary Clinton despite her "reckless" handling of classified data on a private email server.

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

He's also angry with the Democratic Party’s support of same-sex marriage.

"I feel like a Republican now because they don’t stand for same-sex marriage, and that appeals to me," he tells the Post, which notes the Kenyan made headlines in 2011 when he married his third wife, who was still in her teens.

The president's relative ran and lost a race for governor in the southwestern Kenyan county of Siaya in 2013, and tells the Post: "I don’t think politics is my thing."

"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," he said.
