Donald Trump Wants to Commit War Crimes and Neocons Still Think He’s Too Moderate

1 March 2016

Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s campaign has come under fire from high-level military officials, including former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who has said if Trump were elected president, it is possible U.S. military officials would refuse to follow his orders. Trump has pledged to reinstate forms of torture, including waterboarding, and other practices he said were “so much worse.” He has also repeatedly called for killing the family members of terrorists—a practice that violates the Geneva Conventions.

We speak with Zaid Jilani, staff reporter at The Intercept, who argues the pledges Trump made about torture are “flatly illegal,” but past presidents have also disobeyed and disavowed international law. His new article is “Neoconservatives Declare War on Donald Trump.” We also speak with Mychal Denzel Smith, Knobler fellow at The Nation Institute and a contributing writer for The Nation magazine.
