Muslim cleric on TV says it is fine to marry even a one-day old baby in Islam

As you can see in the video below which went viral and was posted by the human rights organization Ex-Muslims of North America, a Muslim cleric on Arab TV promotes child marriage.
The video below was shared on Twitter with the following description:
"Sheikh says it is fine to marry even a one-day old baby in Islam. He uses religious scripture to justify this, just as many child marriages are justified in Islamic communities."
This is how young girls are treated all over Asia and Africa in countries where Sharia is practiced.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
