Getting "unable to get local issuer certificate" from discord api, when cloudflare zero trust is on

Throwing “unable to get local issuer certificate” error when trying to run a discord bot. I faced a similar issue with git and few other applications/websites. Luckily, with git, it was solved with a single command git config --global http.sslbackend schannel. What is the cause of this error? How can I remove it?

Look like you’re using Node.JS for the bot
Try executing this command:
npm config set strict-ssl false
