During Thursday night’s Fox News Republican presidential debate, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump stood by his support for waterboarding as a useful interrogation technique.

He took it a step further, saying that he believes the U.S. military “should go tougher than waterboarding” when dealing with terrorists.

“Can you imagine these people – these animals – over in the Middle East that chop off heads, sitting around talking and seeing that we’re having a hard problem with waterboarding?” Trump asked.

“We should go for waterboarding and we should go tougher than waterboarding.”

He later added that he believes terrorists’ families should not be exempt from such tactics.
