President Obama's Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again -- so he's voting for Donald Trump.

"I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart," Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. "Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him."

Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his "deep disappointment" in his brother Barack's administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to "the party of Lincoln."

The Browns don't believe it's good enough for running back Isaiah Crowell's to simply apologize for posting on social media an image of an attack on a police officer. The union that represents Cleveland's police officers agrees.

Stephen Loomis, the president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association, calls Crowell's gesture a "store-bought apology." In comments to TMZ, Loomis also described Crowell's post as being as "offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s."

Loomis has a specific suggestion for what Crowell needs to do next. read more

Micah Xavier Johnson, the lone gunman in Thursday night's ambush on police in downtown Dallas, was an Army veteran who friends described as a nice guy.

But he also was enraged with police shootings of black men around the country, he told negotiators during a tense standoff, and he "had very strong feelings about being black," a former co-worker said.

Authorities are now investigating whether Johnson was directed by the militant groups he "liked" on social media -- including the African American Defense League, the Black Riders Liberation Party, the Huey P. Newton Gun Club and the New Black Panther Party -- or merely emboldened by them.

On Facebook, Balogun appeared to praise Johnson's actions, writing Sunday, "He shall be celebrated one day." People who replied called Johnson a hero who stood up to injustice.

Balogun deleted the post Monday morning. read more

Hillary Clinton could be interviewed by the FBI in the coming days as part of an investigation into the former secretary of state and her staff's use of private email to conduct official U.S. State Department business, according to a source familiar with the U.S. Department of Justice's investigation. The Justice Department's goal is to complete the investigation and make recommendations on whether charges should be filed before the two major party conventions take place toward the latter half of July, the source said. Officials want ample time to review Clinton's interview and compare it to everything they have discovered in the months-long investigations, according to the source. Last year, it was revealed that Clinton had exclusively used her family's private email server for official communications during her tenure as secretary of state. The officials communications included thousands of emails that were later marked classified by the U.S. State Department. read more
