After President Donald Trump dismantled DACA on Tuesday, former President Barack Obama immediately released a statement bashing him for this decision. This immediately backfired when Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama spoke out to slam the former president for what he had to say.
Barack Obama calls President Trumps decision on ending DACA “cruel”. Complete Hypocrisy!Why didn’t he lift a single finger to help his Aunt?,” tweeted Malik Obama, according to The Gateway Pundit.

Malik was talking about Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who passed away in 2014. She moved to the U.S. from Kenya in 2000 and was denied asylum in 2004, but she continued living here illegally in Boston public housing. She was finally granted asylum in 2010 by a judge who said she could be in danger if she returned to Kenya because of her relationship with Obama.
Obama skipped his aunt’s funeral when she died to play a round of golf, and never did anything to help her.
On Tuesday, Obama tried to play the race card to attack Trump for the DACA move.
“What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray,” Obama wrote. “What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation.”
