MOUNT PLEASANT, South Carolina (The Adobo Chronicles) – First, Donald Trump said the United States should close its borders to Mexicans and immigrants. Then he called for the banning of Chinese birth tourism. Then he called for shutting out all Muslims from entering the United States.
Now, the Republican presidential candidate and frontrunner says America should ban all foolish people, referring to those who advocate freedom of speech under the U.S. Constutution’s First Amendment.
In a campaign speech in South Carolina this week, Trump suggested that “we should close the Internet in some places as a way to stop terrorism. He says he will call Bill Gates and others who know what’s going on.
Trump said he expects many people to criticize his Internet closure proposal on First Amendment grounds, but “these are foolish people. There are a lot of foolish people and they should all be banned from America.” This latest statement didn’t sit well with many of his own supporters, especially the foolish people who keep on voting for him in the polls.
Trump continues to surge in the polls with a double-digit lead over his closest rival Senator Ted Cruz.
