President Trump repeated his assertion that waterboarding is a successful counterterrorism tactic on Thursday amid rumors that his administration will soon review use of enhanced interrogation tactics on the battlefield.
“We have evil that lurks around the corner without the uniforms,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “They’re sneaky, dirty rats. And they blow people up in a shopping center. And they blow people up in a church. These are bad people.”
Trump compared Islamic State fighters to Nazis, arguing terrorists present a different set of challenges because they are harder to identify.
