Trump Says THIS Will Happen To Captured Terrorists If He’s President

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump wants to extract information from America’s enemies in the fight to stop terrorism, and he’s willing to bring back waterboarding to do it.

In fact, he said he’d go even further than waterboarding if need be.

“I would approve waterboarding, and if you go beyond it, I’m OK with that,” he told ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

He reiterated that point at a town hall event, as the AP reports:

Republican Donald Trump is doubling down on his support for intensifying interrogation techniques for some foreign prisoners. Trump said during this week’s GOP debate that he is in favor of bringing back waterboarding and “a hell of a lot worse.”

He’s telling a town hall in Salem that waterboarding is “peanuts,” compared to what Islamic State militants are doing. “It’s fine,” Trump says of waterboarding. “And much tougher than that is fine. When we’re dealing with these animals we can’t be soft and weak like our politicians.”

Watch Trump’s comments at the Town Hall below …

Trump went on to say that terrorists are “laughing like hell at the United States” for even questioning our use of enhanced interrogation techniques.

Comment: Do you think we should waterboard terrorists to extract information? Should we go beyond waterboarding? Share your thoughts below.
