The father of Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen is an Afghan immigrant who hosted an anti-American YouTube talk show.

Seddique Mateen can be seen in dozens of videos denouncing the United States and even announcing his support for the Taliban.

In the videos, which are mostly in the Dari language, Mateen apparently portrays himself as an influential Afghan political analyst and leader.

The Washington Post reported that Mateen even declared his candidacy for the Afghan presidency in a video posted to YouTube last year, even though the election had taken place a year earlier.
