Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has an idea for stopping ISIS and everything else wrong with the world — He wants to close the Internet.
“We’re losing a lot of people because of the Internet,” Trump said Monday at a campaign rally in South Carolina.
ISIS has been known for recruiting members online — while the Paris attacks raised concerns over terrorists using encrypted software led messaging app Telegram to shut down ISIS-related channels.
“We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way.”
Trump continued, “Somebody will say, ‘Oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.”
