Donald Trump certainly isn’t trying to hedge on whether he’d support using waterboarding to combat terrorism.
Quite the contrary, reports USA Today.
“I would bring back waterboarding,” he said last night at the Republican debate in New Hampshire. “And I would bring back a hell of a lot worse.”
Ted Cruz, meanwhile, who’s also known for his hawkish language on the campaign trail — he’s fond of saying he’d “carpet bomb” the Islamic State — said he didn’t think waterboarding was, by definition, torture. But he added that he wouldn’t bring it back in any “widespread” fashion.
