Just when you thought discussion over the transition of the internet's technical functions couldn't get any more ridiculous, here comes Donald Trump.

"Trump opposes President Obama's plan to surrender American internet control to foreign powers," reads a press release put out by the Trump campaign on Wednesday, as senators attempt to reach reasonable compromise over funding the US government past October 1.

"Donald J Trump is committed to preserving Internet freedom for the American people and citizens all over the world," the release states. "The US should not turn control of the Internet over to the United Nations and the international community."
