Republican presidential race-leaderDonald Trumpon Tuesday came under fire for calling for censoring the Internet to disrupt terrorists – comments he quickly clarified when rivals accused him of ignoring the U.S. Constitution.Trump initially called for an Internet shutdown to prevent the Islamic State from recruiting online, after he was asked about recently making the proposal on the campaign trail.’ISIS is using the Internet better than we are using the Internet, and it was our idea,’ he said.’What I wanted to do is I wanted to get our brilliant people from Silicon Valley and other places and figure out a way thatISIScannot do what they’re doing. You talk freedom of speech. You talk freedom of anything you want.”I don’t want them using our Internet to take our young, impressionable youth and watching the media talking about how they’re masterminds — these are masterminds… We should be using our brilliant people, our most brilliant minds to figure a way that ISIS cannot use the Internet.
