Speaking at the Pearl Harbor Day Rally at the USS Yorktown in South Carolina, Trump suggested a woefully misguided scheme for preventing ISIS from spreading its propaganda and recruiting people from the US.

“We have to 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 ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.”

Because, of course, Bill Gates has the keys to the internet.
