Donald Trump professed his love for waterboarding during a campaign rally in Indianapolis, Indiana on Wednesday calling it “great.”

While discussing ISIS, Trump said, “Now we’re living in medieval times. We’re weak, we’re ineffective.”

After slamming [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] for his “weak, pathetic answer” at a debate regarding waterboarding, Trump said, “They asked me, What do you think about waterboarding, Mr. Trump?’ I said I love it. I love it, I think it’s great. And I said the only thing is, we should make it much tougher than waterboarding, and if you don’t think it works folks, you’re wrong. But you know, there are laws, we have laws that we have to abide by.”

“So I say we’re going to have to strengthen the laws and toughen up the laws, and we’re going to have to make ourselves tougher because they can chop off heads, they can drown people in steel cages,” Trump argued.

ISIS “can put people in steel cages by 25 and 50 people and drop them in the water and pull them up an hour later and we can’t waterboard,” Trump fumed. “How stupid are we? How stupid are we?”
