President Trump threatens to watch Google "very closely
« on: August 07, 2019, 04:57:23 AM »

One day after saying that hate has no place in the U.S., President Donald Trump went after Google and its CEO Sundar Pichai. In a series of tweets, the president said that Pichai spoke with him in the Oval Office where the executive supposedly told Trump how much he liked him and what a great job the administration is doing. The president went on to add that Pichai told him that Google was not involved with China's military and that they didn't have a bias toward Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump wrote that Google's CEO said that his company doesn't plan to "illegally subvert the 2020 Election despite all that has been said to the contrary." The latter appears to be a supurious charge against Google.

So what set off the Commander-in-chief today? Apparently, Trump saw a segment on Lou Dobbs' Fox Business show about a fired Google engineer named Kevin Cernekee who had talked with Fox's Tucker Carlson. Cernekee told Carlson that Google really wants "Trump to lose in 2020. Thatís their agenda." Google denied the allegations, and we should point out that both Dobbs and Carlson have agendas of their own. Cernekee, according to some Google employees, tried to promote some alt-right theories inside the company. He claims that Google fired him for his beliefs, although Google says he was fired for downloading internal company documents on his own mobile device.
Trump has attacked Google before for a perceived bias

"The statements made by this disgruntled former employee are absolutely false. We go to great lengths to build our products and enforce our policies in ways that donít take political leanings into account. Distorting results for political purposes would harm our business and go against our mission of providing helpful content to all of our users."-Google spokesman

The segment on Dobbs' show included an appearance of Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer. The conservative journalist caught Trump's attention and the president tweeted that "@peterschweizer stated with certainty that they suppressed negative stories on Hillary Clinton, and boosted negative stories on Donald Trump. All very illegal. We are watching Google very closely!"
