CBS News allegedly said President Trump’s reelection bid received support Friday from the Taliban. After the report was released, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid called out the western media outlet for “misinterpreting” what he said.
Mujahid published a tweet Saturday, saying: “The CBS American media has misinterpreted and misrepresented my words, nothing like what they have published has happened.”
He added, “The American media, CBS, misinterpreted my words, saying what they said was not what they said.”
In another tweet, Mujahid said, “U.S. news outlet @CBSNews has interpreted & published my remarks incorrectly. Nothing of the sort has been communicated as publicized by them.”
Mujahid, however, did not explain which part of his interview allegedly got misinterpreted.
CBS News’ quote of the Taliban spokesman that is in question is, “we hope he will win the election and wind up U.S. military presence in Afghanistan.”
In another quote, CBS News said Mujahid praised Trump’s “America first” motto.
