“What Does it Mean When the President Endorses Torture?” NBC News

NBC News reports on President Trump’s comments supportive of torture both on the campaign trail and as president. His remarks have concerned many with world leaders, military officials, and legal experts all expressing chagrin over his statements. Karen Greenberg said that Trump "has taken the veil off of this, as he has with so many things, [he] is not a president who is going to pretend we're going to do one thing and say another” and that his remarks show that he "is either not concerned about, or doesn't understand, issues of recriminations and the blowback that can occur with such policies."
