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.
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.
