President Obama’s two half brothers don’t agree when it comes to Donald Trump.

Malik Obama, who is estranged from Obama, supports the Republican candidate and received an invite as Trump’s guest to the third and final presidential debate Wednesday.

But Mark Obama Ndesandjo, who lives in the south of China, disagrees.

"I love my brothers, but no one member represents the Obamas,” Ndesandjo told the Associated Press in an email Wednesday.

All three half brothers share the same father, but have different mothers.

Malik Obama will attend the debate on invitation from the Trump campaign at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

He will join Pat Smith, the mother of an American who died in the Benghazi attack and an outspoken critic of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
