Will Trump Grow Guantanamo?

The Associated Press reports: “Never mind closing Guantanamo. It might be getting bigger.”

“President Barack Obama is running out of time to fulfill his longstanding promise to shutter the prison at the U.S. military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Sixty inmates remain in the facility and only a third are cleared for release.”

“If Obama can’t close it, his successor likely won’t. Donald Trump has not only pledged to keep Guantanamo open, in April he said that ‘we’re gonna load it up with some bad dudes, believe me. We’re gonna load it up.'”
