An American news division of CBS channels reported Saturday that trump has received endorsements on Friday from the Taliban, mostly rejected by the republicans.

In a phone interview, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah mujahid Told CBS news, that “We hope Trump will win the election and wind up U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.”.

The once famed as Terrorist group internationally is now concerned about the health of the American president.

“When we heard about Trump being COVID-19 positive, we got worried for his health, but seems he is getting better,” CBS quotes, another Taliban leader.

Trump campaign spokesman, Tim Murtaugh, reportedly told on Saturday they reject Taliban support, and that the president will always protect American interest by any means”

A senior Taliban member told CBS News, “Trump might be ridiculous for the rest of the world, but he is sane and wise man for the Taliban.”

“It is the slogan of Trump from the start that they are not cops for the world and don’t want a single flag and anthem for the globe, but their priority is America,” CBS quoted Mujahid.

“Honestly, Trump was much more honest with us than we thought, even we were stunned with his offer to meet the Taliban in Camp David.” Another top-ranked Taliban member told CBS.

Taliban were invited for peace negotiations in Camp David by the American president in 2019, days before 9/11 but the offer was canceled when an American soldier was reportedly killed by the militants.

On the other hand, Taliban Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid then tweeted that the American media has misinterpreted his comments.

The United States and the Taliban signed a peace deal in February under which the Taliban would not attack US forces and the United States would withdraw its troops from Afghanistan within six months.
