Be careful... you're on thin ice, Trump warns Google, Facebook and Twitter

Recommended Posts

President Donald Trump warned Alphabet’s Google, Facebook and Twitter "better be careful" after he accused the search engine earlier in the day of rigging results to give preference to negative news stories about him.


Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that the three technology companies "are treading on very, very troubled territory", as he added his voice to a growing chorus of conservatives who claim internet companies favour liberal viewpoints.


“This is a very serious situation - will be addressed!” Trump said in a tweet earlier on Tuesday. The President’s comments came the morning after a Fox Business TV segment that said Google favoured liberal news outlets in search results about Trump. Trump provided no substantiation for his claim.


"Google search results for 'Trump News' shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD," Trump said. "Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal."


The allegation, dismissed by online search experts, follows the president’s August 24 claim that social media "giants" are "silencing millions of people". Such accusations - along with assertions that the news media and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia meddling probe are biased against him - have been a chief Trump talking point meant to appeal to the president’s base.
