    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday he would bring back waterboarding as a strategy in interrogations of suspected terrorists, NBC News reported.

    "I would bring it back, yes. I would bring it back. I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they'd do to us," Trump told "This Week" on ABC. "We have to be strong. You know, they don't use waterboarding over there; they use chopping off people's heads."

    Trump's comments on ABC's "This Week" followed a week of controversial statements from the candidate about being tough on terror made in the wake of the attacks in Paris and Mali.
