( – Philanthropist Malik Obama, older brother to former President Barack Obama, endorsed the Republican candidate for governor in Pennsylvania, Doug Mastriano, on Sunday.

Taking to Twitter, Malik Obama responded to a post from American conservative author and podcast host Jack Posobiec in which he suggested that the older Obama may like Mastriano and should “check him out.”

“​​If he’s with President Trump then I’m with @dougmastriano Pennsylvania Senator PA District 33,” Obama responded in a tweet to Jack Posobiec.

Former President Donald Trump endorsed Mastriano in the primary race for governor earlier this year, saying in a statement that there is “no one in Pennsylvania who has done more, or fought harder, for election integrity than state Senator Doug Mastriano.”

As the November midterms quickly approach, new polling data suggests the GOP have a strong lead in Pennsylvania due to strong foothold in the suburbs.

Attorney General Josh Shapiro, has ducked debating his GOP rival as polls tighten the Democratic nominee for the gubernatorial race.

“Josh Shapiro is a disaster and he’s too radical and extreme in Pennsylvania. He’s failed us as the attorney general,” Mastriano said to Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

This isn’t the first time that Malik Obama has expressed his support for Trump. Back in 2016, the businessman told reporters that he planned to travel from Kenya to the United States in November to vote for the Republican presidential candidate. He previously worked in Maryland, where he was a registered Democrat.

“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told the New York Post from his home in the village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him,” he said.

He also touted Trump as being a “down-to-earth kind of person” who “approaches issues directly and does not mince his words,” according to the newspaper.

During that same interview, Obama also said he was disappointed that the FBI had decided not to prosecute Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton over the controversial use of a private email server for public communications while she was secretary of state.

In response to his comments at the time, Trump wrote on Facebook: “Wow, President Obama’s brother, Malik, just announced that he is voting for me,” adding that he “was probably treated badly by [the] president—like everybody else!”

Malik Obama revealed last month that he has not spoken with former President Barack Obama since 2015 amid differing political views.
