Unic Press UK: The United States president, Donald Trump, said Wednesday that the reports aired by some media organisation that the Russian government had offered bounties to the Taliban militants to kill U.S. troops is not true.
In a tweet, Trump said: “The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by Fake News tale… The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself… Just another HOAX!”
The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party. The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself. If the discredited @nytimes has a source, reveal it. Just another HOAX!

As at this moment, it appears that the U.S. intelligence position is that the media report of a Russian bounty to the Taliban are untrue, unverified.
