Coleman's reference to her two "surviving children" was unexplained.
Coleman says the video was made December 3 and as they ask for their freedom she says both her children "have seen their mother defiled".
"My children have seen their mother defiled", she added, without clarification.
Moments later, she speaks to Trump, "They want money, power, and friends", Coleman says of her captors. The captors have sought the release of a commander who is being held by the Afghan government and has been sentenced to death. The Colemans issued a plea on Circa News Network in July to top Taliban leaders to let their daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren go as an end-of-Ramadan show of mercy. Though President Obama's administration has tried to free them, Navy SEALs have failed in two separate missions along with another to free an Australian-born professor. "We are told there are Afghans who are prisoners in Kabul that these men care about".
"We have waited since 2012 for somebody to understand our problems", she said, appearing to read from a script, while her husband sat next to her with their children rested on his lap.
In the latest video, Coleman appeals to both President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump to discuss her release with her captors. "Just give the offenders something so they and you can save face and we can leave the region permanently". Coleman was wearing a burka without a veil. Boyle is described as "pale and exhausted".
Coleman began the video by saying it was recorded on 3 December but this has yet to be verified. "We know that Caitlan has a medical ailment, and as this video confirms, she has two small children to care for".

Clawson told "Mike & Mike" that the discovery on game day led coaches to change the team's game plan, which confused many players. Galloway and Elrod worked together on the Wake Forest coaching staff in 2011 and 2012.
He did say the USA government has remained in regular contact with Coleman's parents.
"Certainly when Americans are taken captive, this becomes an immediate priority for us".
"I have been working to ensure that our Government is working to safely recover their daughter and to push for our foreign partners to do more on her case, as well".
"We are deeply concerned for the safety and wellbeing of Joshua Boyle, Caitlan Coleman and their young children and call for their unconditional release", O'Shaughnessy said. ABC News has withheld the names of the other American hostages for security reasons, despite the fact that the Taliban don't typically execute their western captives, at the request of the USA government and their families.
As for why a man and his pregnant wife would be backpacking through Afghanistan in 2012, the Daily Mail quotes some relatives describing them as "well-intentioned but naive adventure seekers".
