9/21/16, "Trump Opposes President Obama’s Plan to Surrender American Internet Control to Foreign Powers," Donald J. Trump
"Donald J. Trump is committed to preserving Internet freedom for the
American people and citizens all over the world. The U.S. should not
turn control of the Internet over to the United Nations and the
international community. President Obama intends to do so on his own
authority – just 10 days from now, on October 1st,
unless Congress acts quickly to stop him. The Republicans in Congress
are admirably leading a fight to save the Internet this week, and need
all the help the American people can give them to be successful. Hillary
Clinton’s Democrats are refusing to protect the American people by not
protecting the Internet.
The U.S. created, developed and
expanded the Internet across the globe. U.S. oversight has kept the
Internet free and open without government censorship – a fundamental
American value rooted in our Constitution’s Free Speech clause. Internet
freedom is now at risk with the President's intent to cede control to international interests, including countries like China and Russia,
which have a long track record of trying to impose online censorship.
Congress needs to act, or Internet freedom will be lost for good, since
there will be no way to make it great again once it is lost." - Stephen Miller, National Policy Director"
