Trump and the Constitution Series

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 4:30pm Location: Aaron Burr Hall, Room 219

Donald Trump ran for president and won on a platform that included the pledge to bring back waterboarding and other torture techniques. Within days of taking office, he signed executive orders that would indicate his intention to make good on that pledge. The question of whether the United States could or should resurrect a torture policy has become, again, a topic of fierce debate.
