In his support of the Republican presidential nominee, Malik said the mainstream media is biased, Page Six reports. He also dismissed the women who came out and accused Trump of sexual assault, saying, “I don’t believe them.”
“Why didn’t they come forward before?” he said.
Malik was critical of Clinton, slamming her “performance as secretary of the State Department for exacerbating the chaos and violence in the Mideast,” Page Six stated.
His relationship with his brother has not been affectionate. Malik said he last met Obama in August 2015 following the latter’s visit to Kenya. “I went to the White House to say hello,” Malik said. “I paid a courtesy call.” But, Malik said, the meeting was “very businesslike, very formal.”
