Donald Trump’s campaign is bringing US President Barack Obama’s half-brother to the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday.

The campaign confirmed that Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother Malik will be in the audience during the final showdown between Trump and rival Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

Malik told the New York Post that he’s “excited to be at the debate” and said, “Trump can make America great again.”

Trump also told the paper that Malik, “gets it far better than his brother.”

A US citizen who now lives in Kenya, Malik Obama garnered headlines in July when he announced he would vote for Trump, saying he was disappointed by his brother’s Democratic administration.

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.
