REPUBLICAN presidential candidate Donald Trump is the gift that keeps on giving.

The former reality television star recently detailed his latest plan to combat radical extremism and it could be his most ludicrous idea yet.

Speaking at a campaign rally at the USS Yorktown in South Carolina, Mr Trump said he would look at “closing up” the internet to stop Islamic State from recruiting Americans.

While most people with common sense understand the enormity of such a task, Mr Trump thinks it is as easy as getting Bill Gates on the phone.

“We’re losing a lot of people because of the internet,” he said.

“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.”

Best of luck with that one, Donald.
