McCain to Trump: ‘We Will Not Torture’

8

Arizona Sen. John McCain affirmed that the U.S. will not employ tactics of torture, no matter what President-elect Donald Trump wants to do.

“I don’t [care] what the president of the United States wants to do,” McCain said at the Halifax International Security Forum. “We will not waterboard. We will not torture people. … It doesn’t work.” Trump has said in the past that he likes waterboarding “a lot” and that it’s not “tough enough.”

Legislation signed last year by President Obama prohibits such interrogation tactics. McCain, who was held as a prisoner of war and tortured during the Vietnam War, added that anyone who tries to employ such techniques would be in court in a “New York minute.” Read more at POLITICO.

  1. Mr. McCain thank heavens you are not president keep your 2 cents to yourself and let someone else deal with these sadistic murderers who don’t play by civilized rules

  2. Apparently Mr. McShame, who was so petrified of being called a racist by the NY Times, threw the elections to Obama, doesn’t realize that Donald Trump won the elections and will be our next President. WHO CARES WHAT HE THINKS?! McShame can join Uncle Joe Biden at the dog track. He is still part of the RINO establishment of losers. Good bye.

  3. Who asked you Mr. McCain? As far as I’m concerned you had your chance to make your voice heard, but guess what? Nobody was interested in hearing what you had to say. In fact you were turned down by two thirds of this country. So what makes to you think anyone wants to hear what you have to say now.. Time to think about retirement. .

  4. Mr Mcain – you are OUT OF THE PICTURE since you lost big time. America now has a new LEADER who together with the Republican congress will lead this nation to prosperity, strength and become WORLD LEADER again.

    no more bowing to other leaders, no more BILLION DOLLAR GIVEAWAYS, no more fear of third world countries or even other world powers.

    TEAR DOWN THAT WALL said Mr Reagan and it happened.
    DESTROY ALL THOSE NUKES will President Trump say and it will happen

  5. The Republicans should keep acting almost a half second party

    The Democratic party used to more or less do something like this in their ‘big ‘ days
    1940s-’70s
