President Barack Obama's half-brother will be Donald Trump's guest at his last debate on Wednesday with Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas.

Malik Obama, who was born in Kenya but is now an American citizen living in Washington, told Page Six of The New York Post that he will be at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas as the Republican nominee's guest.

"I'm excited to be at the debate," Obama told the Post. "Trump can make America great again."

Trump told the Post: "I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik. He gets it far better than his brother."

Obama endorsed Trump in July. He is three years older than the president, who is 55. They first met in 1985.

The elder Obama slammed the mainstream media as biased against Trump and questioned the motives of the as many as 10 women who have accused the nominee of sexual assault or other inappropriate behavior.

"I don’t believe them," Obama said. "Why didn’t they come forward before?"

He slammed Clinton's job as secretary of state,  pointing to what happened in Libya after dictator Muammar Gaddafi was ousted in 2011.

"Check out the situation in Libya now," Obama said.

He founded the Barack H. Obama Foundation in 2008. It was named after his and the president's father. The charity organization's objective was to help the family’s village of Kogelo, Kenya.

However, he told the Post that the foundation could have been more helpful "if I had gotten the support I should have gotten from my brother."

Malik Obama said he last saw his brother in August 2015, after he visited Kenya.

"I went to the White House to say hello," he said. "I paid a courtesy call.

"As usual, it was a hands-off kind of thing, very businesslike, very formal," he told the Post.
