Google is ‘trying to rig the election’ in 2020 – Trump

Google is ‘trying to rig the election’ in 2020 – Trump

US President Donald Trump has apparently accused Google of attempts to “rig” the 2020 presidential election. He also said that Twitter is blocking people from following him.

“They’re trying to rig the election” in 2020, Trump said, seemingly singling out Google in an interview with Fox Business on Wednesday.

Trump blasted Twitter and Google for silencing conservative voices and harboring “hatred for the Republicans.”

“Twitter is just terrible, what they do. They don’t let you get the word out,” he said.

I’ll tell you what, they should be sued because what’s happening with the bias.

The president added that the tech giants “make it much harder for me to get out the message.”

These people are all Democrats. It’s totally biased toward Democrats. If I announced tomorrow that I’m going to become a nice liberal Democrat, I would pick up five times more followers.”

Two days earlier, right-wing transparency group Project Veritas shared a video in which Google’s Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai, argued against proposals to break up the company, as this would cause Google to fail at “preventing the next Trump situation.”

Gennai later claimed that she had used “some imprecise language” and had no idea that she was being filmed. Nevertheless, the incident added to the longstanding accusations of liberal, left-wing bias that conservatives have leveled against Google.

The company has also found itself in hot water over an internal email released by Project Veritas this week. In it, a person believed to be a member of Google’s transparency and ethics team described prominent conservative pundits like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson as “Nazis using the dog whistles.”

Trump has accused social media companies in the past of being unfair to conservatives and to himself, calling Facebook, Twitter, and Google “collusive.” In April, he stated that the number of Twitter followers he has would have been “much higher” if Twitter “wasn’t playing their political games.”
