Trump told a campaign rally in South Carolina, America’s best shot at preventing Americans from joining ISIS involves “closing that internet up” in “certain areas”.
The way Trump sees it, the United States is “losing a lot of people because of the internet, and it has to have to “do something”.
He thinks if Bill Gates closes the internet down in towns full of people who marked ‘terrorist’ in their United States Census forms, people will not connect to and join the Islamic State. Great minds like that are clearly above the rest of the world’s thinking.
But how would Trump go about closing the internet down? Apparently, he’d seek the advice of “Bill Gates and a lot of different people who really understand what’s happening”.
Trump said that closing the internet down will probably make people worry about free speech. But Trump also explained that “these are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people”.
We thought that foolish people made America great, but we must have watched the wrong campaign sound bite.
Amazon Boss Jeff Bezos told Donald Trump on Twitter that he “will still reserve him a seat on the Blue Origin rocket. #sendDonaldtospace” after being trashed by the presidential hopeful earlier in the day.
