Trump says he'd try U.S. citizens in Gitmo military tribunals

During an interview with the Miami Herald on Thursday, Trump was asked if he would push to get U.S. citizens accused of terrorism tried by military commissions at the U.S. military base in Cuba, a change that would require action from Congress.

“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,” he said. “I would say they could be tried there, that would be fine.”

Trump has spoken out against President Obama’s efforts to close Guantanamo, saying he’d rather “load it up with bad dudes.” But he wouldn’t say whether he would reopen the prison to new detainees captured abroad.
