Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that the country needed to be able to torture to “beat ISIS” and “beat the savages.”
Trump said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that ISIS isn’t playing by the rules.
“We’re not playing by — we are playing by rules, but they have no rules. It’s very hard to win when that’s the case,” Trump said.
“Isn’t that what separates us from the savages?” CBS host John Dickerson asked Trump.
“No, we have to beat the savages,” Trump replied.
“Obviously, all you have to do is take a look at what’s going on. And they’re getting worse,” Trump continued. “They’re chopping, chopping, chopping, and we’re worried about waterboarding. I just think it’s – I think our priorities are mixed up.”
