  • \"Somebody will say, \'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.\' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people.\"
  • Bill Gates has refused to respond to Trump\'s ridiculous statements while Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants to send Trump into space.

After facing flak for his rancid comments on Muslims, refugees, disabled people and blacks, Donald Trump is at it again with the most bizarre statement of all. Mr Trump wants to close down internet (Remember internet and not intranet) and wants to join forces with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to achieve his so-called aim.

At a campaign event on Monday night, the GOP presidential front-runner said ISIS terrorists are recruiting people online, especially targeting kids.

"We're losing a lot of people because of the Internet, and we have to do something. 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, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people."

Meanwhile, Bill Gates is very active on the very same internet but has not responded to Trump's plea for help through Twitter or Facebook.

Trump has been pretty good at poking the bears in Tech Land - Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos tweeted earlier this week that he'd love to send Trump to space.
