Taliban Spokesman on CBS Claim Jihadis Endorsed Trump: 'Nothing of the Sort' Happened


A top spokesman for the Afghan Taliban recently repudiated a CBS News story claiming that the narco-jihadi group wants President Donald Trump to win the upcoming election.

Zabihullah Mujahid dismissed the October 11 CBS article as fake news soon after it came out with the headline — “The Taliban on Trump: ‘We Hope He Will Win the Election’ and Withdraw U.S. Troops.”

In response, CBS News claimed that it mistakenly cited Mujahid as the author of the headline quote, asserting that it originated from an unnamed senior Taliban leader. The Taliban has not, at press time, used its official channels to address the alleged new anonymous source of the quote.
