Donald Trump Wants To ‘Close Up’ The Internet

/ 3 years ago


Donald Trump is known for a wide range of things, from his running as a presidential candidate, his viewpoints on certain issues and even in the UK for blocking proposals of new electric wind farms. The latest idea from Trump though is even more worrying; he wants to close off the internet.

At a campaign rally, Trump starts by saying “we are losing a lot of people because of the internet”. before going on to say that he would ring up people like Bill Gates and the others who “really understand what’s happening” and begin discussions to close up the internet. The idea behind this scheme is to prevent U.S. citizens from being recruited into acts of domestic terrorism and other groups, mainly based abroad, such as ISIS who may use the internet as a recruitment medium.

Trump goes on to say that after closing up the internet you will get people saying “freedom of speech” to which he suggested that those people are “foolish”.

Trump could be suggesting a giant firewall, similar to that in place in China and Thailand, Either way people will state that such an action goes against freedom of speech, a concept that is held very high in the United States and has seen many days in court recently.

    the world is in a collapse i master plan has been laid by the big corp’s, on how to strip us from “freedom of speech, rights ETC” is awful, and the mainstream “regular” person is fine with this, in exchange they are getting “safety”

    It’s obvious that Trump isn’t running for president. He’s attempting to turn America into a totalitarian regime. It’s also obvious just how little Trump knows about what America stands for and what our Constitution stands for. In most of the world, Trump would have been shunned and ignored. Here in America, he’s the most popular candidate among the closed minded, racist and ignorant (also known as Conservative Republicans).
