WASHINGTON – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump renewed a call for tougher U.S. border security following Tuesday’s deadly attacks in Brussels, and suggested torture could be an effective technique to gain information to thwart future attacks.

Trump’s comments, in an interview on NBC’s “Today” program, came a day after he expressed skepticism about the U.S. role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and said the United States should significantly cut spending on the defence alliance.

“As president … I would be very, very tough on the borders, and I would be not allowing certain people to come into this country without absolute perfect documentation,” Trump said.
