Donald Trump has invited President Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother, Malik, and Patricia Smith, the mother of a Benghazi victim, to the final presidential debate on Wednesday.

“I’m excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again,” Malik Obama told the New York Post in a story published Tuesday.

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

Mr. Trump has also invited Ms. Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, who was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, to be a guest.

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has invited billionaire businessman Mark Cuban, Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman, and several Nevadans from immigrant families, including prominent Dreamer Astrid Silva, according to The Associated Press.

The third and final presidential debate will be held Wednesday at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

At the second debate, Mr. Trump invited several women who have accused former President Clinton of sexual assault or rape and held a roundtable discussion with them beforehand.
