Donald Trump invited the mother of one of four Americans killed in the Benghazi attack in 2012 to attend the final presidential debate.

Pat Smith, whose son was a US State department IT analyst killed in Benghazi after a diplomatic facility was overrun by protestors, accuses Clinton of lying about how the attack unfolded.

Smith confirmed to Yahoo News that Trump had on Monday invited her to attend the final presidential debate, which will take place on Wednesday.

Trump’s campaign also confirmed that it extended an invitation to Smith.

The campaign also extended an invitation to Barack Obama’s half brother Malik Obama, who grew up in Kenya and met the current US president for the first time in 2014.

Speaking about the debate, Smith told Yahoo news that she hoped to sit on the front row and be able to look into the eyes of Hilary Clinton.

“I want to look in Hillary’s eyes, and have her lie to me again,” said Smith.

Smith also spoke in July at the Republican National Convention, where she delivered an emotional speech blaming her Hillary Clinton for her son’s death.

“I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” Smith told the convention.

In her speech, Smith also accused Clinton of falsely attributing blame for the attacks on an anti-Islam video.

The speech, which left some Republican delegates in tears, finished with Smith saying Clinton should go to prison.

Trump has previously invited others to the debates, apparently in an attempt to put Clinton off her game.

Prior to the last debate, the billionaire businessman held a press conference with three women who claimed Bill Clinton sexually assaulted them, in a bid to offset the uproar caused by a clip from ‘Access Hollywood’ which saw Trump making vulgar comments about women.
