Weeks was working at the American University in Kabul at the time of his abduction. In the second video, American Professor Kevin King, who was kidnapped alongside Weekes, makes a similar plea.
"We want you [Trump] to talk to the American government and put pressure on them to negotiate our release," King said. "They can exchange us for some prisoners in Bagram and then we can go home and see our family."
Both professors can be seen crying in the videos, The Hill reported.
