Joshua Boyle told The Toronto Star that one of the captors said Trump was elected president before he was forced to film a “proof-of-life” video.

“It didn’t enter my mind that he was being serious,” Boyle said.

ADVERTISEMENTThe Boyles were kidnapped in 2012 and were held for five years before being rescued by Pakistani forces last week.

Boyle’s family — his American wife Caitlan Coleman and their three young children, who were all born in captivity — were rescued after U.S. intelligence directed Pakistani authorities to the family's location.

The family was in the trunk of a car when their kidnappers were caught in a shootout with Pakistani forces. The captors were all killed during the rescue.
