Donald Trump: I’d bring back ‘a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding’

Donald Trump said he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding”, or simulated drowning, at the Republican debate in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Saturday.

His Republican rival Ted Cruz, asked whether the practice notoriously used under the Bush administration during the war on terror was torture, denied it was: “Under the definition of torture, no it’s not. It is enhanced interrogation … It does not meet the generally recognized definition of torture.”
