    It's Trump again!


    Donald Trump has called for the internet to be turned off so that children can no longer use it.

    The presidential hopeful said that “We’ve got to maybe do something with the internet,” because it was being used to radicalise people. He said that he would “see Bill Gates” so that he could look into “closing it up”.

    Speaking at the same event where he called for a “complete shutdown” on Muslims entering the US, Mr Trump laid out a rough plan for stopping the influence of Isis.

    Children in America are “watching the internet and they want to be masterminds”, Trump said in a speech.

    I'm pretty sure this is news to Bill Gates, who probably didn't realise he had control over the internet. Still, do you think shutting the internet off would be a good thing. Has the internet made the world a better or worse place?
