So who is going to decide if someone holds “radical” views? Democrats are claiming that people who believe that there is significant vote fraud are “anti-Democratic.” Are they too radical?

“I’ve called upon and am working closely with our Attorney General to identify what’s going on in social media. And those questions are now part of our background checks. Just like in the old days you could talk to someone’s neighbor, now you can talk to their neighbors online to find whether or not this person has been espousing philosophies that indicate they have been radicalized.”
