President Trump's reelection bid received a vote of support Friday from an
entity most in his party would reject: the Taliban.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told CBS News in a phone interview,
"We believe that Trump is going to win the upcoming election because he
has proved himself a politician who accomplished all the major promises he
had made to American people, although he might have missed some small
things, but did accomplish the bigger promises, so it is possible that the
U.S. people who experienced deceptions in the past will once again trust
Trump for his decisive actions."
Another senior Taliban leader told CBS News, "We hope he will win the
election and wind up U.S. military presence in Afghanistan."
