“When ISIS is doing things nobody has ever heard of since medieval times, would I feel strongly about waterboarding? As far as I’m concerned we have to fight fire with fire,” Trump says in the interview (via Deadline), airing tonight, January 25.

He claims to have asked “people at the highest level of intelligence” if torture works.

“The answer was, ‘yes,’” Trump says.

Trump also says he will defer to his cabinet on whether the U.S. will resume using the method.

“If they don’t want to do that’s fine and if they do what to do I will work within that end….but, do I feel it works? Absolutely.”
