In the past week Trump while giving interviews said that if he becomes the president, he would push to change laws prohibiting waterboarding and and other interrogation techniques. He said that US laws should be changed to permit torture of terror suspects as well as targeting their families too.
Trump in his speech in Florida clearly mentioned the methods used by Islamic State militants such as public beheading, drowning in locked cages and more and said that US needed to changed its tactic against the terror group.
"I would like to strengthen the laws," he added Sunday, Mar 6, "so that we can better compete."
Waterboarding is a technique aimed to torture an individual. It is a form of water torture in which water is poured over a cloth covering the face and breathing passages of an immobilized captive, causing the individual to experience the sensation of drowning.
