Trump: I will talk to Bill Gates about 'closing that internet up'

Speaking at a South Carolina campaign event on Monday, Donald Trump suggested that as president he would prevent the spread of extremism online by speaking with Bill Gates to learn how censor the internet.

"We're losing a lot of people because of the internet," Trump argued. "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."
