Donald Trump suggests he wants US law to limit free speech

President says that if legislation on libel was stronger 'you wouldn’t have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes into your head'

No, he didn't suggest that at all. He was talking about strengthening libel laws that are already in place. Plus, any amendments to existing law truly limiting free speech, would end up getting shot down anyway regardless who's president due to lack of constitutionality.

How would one go about strengthening such laws without limiting speech in the process?

Heightened penalties would do exactly that.

Dear Vypr, .. it's no wonder as to why you are such a confused little white collective guilt boy that goes along with all your other problems.  Grin

No, young fella, .. that's not what Trump is suggesting. He is merely saying that libel laws needs strengthening, and he is probably right, especially in the way you dishonestly attribute to me something I said differently in your signature area.   Add 'black tribal chiefs loved slavery' and then it will be accurate. 

Of course you won't, but, that's because you appear to be dishonest!

British libel laws are insane. Mr Trump would love them.


That book would not, in all likelihood, have been published here.

In fact, it’s entirely feasible for mr tump to sue here.

That's an interesting take on free speech.

I would really need to know all of the details of the current laws to get very specific. But in general those amending such laws, should not be afraid to scrutinize whatever specific ideas they come up with on a constitutional level first, before submitting it as an addition or change.  What's important here is how the op is misrepresenting what the president said. You're question indirectly suggests, strengthening existing law isn't really possible without violating the first amendment.
