Malik splits his time between Washington, D.C. and Kenya., Per the Daily News, he has visited his younger brother in the Oval Office and was a best man at his wedding to First Lady Michelle Obama in 1992.

In July, Malik explained why he is supporting the GOP presidential candidate over Clinton, 68. (One month earlier, POTUS, 55, officially endorsed the former secretary of state for president.)
