After making unprecedented accusations against the media, claiming it is “rigging” the election, US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is preparing a number of surprises for Wednesday night’s third and final debate with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump has invited to the debate Patricia Smith, whose son was killed in the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. Two months ago, at the Republican National Convention, Smith said she blames Hillary Clinton personally for her son’s death.

Another one of Trump’s guests is President Barack Obama’s Kenyan-born half-brother, Malik, who has expressed his support for Trump.
