Trump Doubles Down on Waterboarding: ‘You Bet Your Ass’ I’ll Bring It Back

Monday night in Columbus, OH, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doubled down on his vow that he will bring back waterboarding if elected president.

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Trump first said he would bring back waterboarding.

Trump said, “This morning, they asked me a question. Would you approve waterboarding? Would I approve waterboarding?  Would I approve waterboarding? Well let me ask you a question. On the other side they chop off our young people’s heads and they put them on a stick. On the other side, they build these iron cages and they put 20 people in them. They drop them into the ocean for 15 minutes and pull them up 15 minutes later. Would I approve waterboarding?  You bet your ass I’d approve it.”
