dc.description.abstractThis study investigates past United States' experience with torture as official policy under the George W. Bush administration and whether or not torture can once again become practicable, official policy under the Donald J. Trump administration. As the prospect of torture resurfacing in the US policy arsenal seems greater than ever before, as evidenced by the current President's remarks in favor of such practices, an analysis of executive branch legal developments as well as shifts in Congressional and public approval on the matter may help to elucidate the question of whether or not torture remains a viable policy option for President Trump.en_US
