Asked if he supported trying American terror suspects in military tribunals at Guantánamo Bay—a practice that is currently illegal under federal law and would likely violate their constitutional rights to due process—Donald Trump told the Miami Herald on Thursday, “That would be fine.”
“Well, I know that they want to try them in our regular court systems, and I don’t like that at all. I don’t like that at all,” said Trump. “I would say they could be tried [Guantánamo Bay], that would be fine.”
Hey, sure, whatever, why not? Trump presumably thought. Next question please!
