Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he’d bring back waterboarding on Sunday and called the practice “peanuts” compared to “what they’d do to us.”

Trump appeared on ABC’s “This Week” program where he said the country has to be “strong” against enemies.

“We have — I would bring it back, yes. I would bring it back,” Trump said. “I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they’d do to us, what they’re doing to us, what they did to James Foley when they chopped off his head. That’s a whole different level and I would absolutely bring back interrogation and strong interrogation.”
