President Donald Trump in a series of tweets Tuesday accused Google of purposefully “suppressing the voices of conservatives” placing on the main searches pages only news with criticism of Trump, which, in president’s opinion, are by and large fake.
The US president said that the search giant is “rigged” to show users “bad” stories about him and hides what he labeled as “positive” news. The American leader promised to “sort out” this situation, which he described as an attempt at information control by the Internet giants.
In October last year, Trump stated that media outlets that disagree with him ought to be closed. He repeatedly criticized many leading American media because they, in his opinion, disseminate information about him that is unreliable while “Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out”. For this reason, the head of the White House has repeatedly called such outlets as The New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN etc. “enemies of the people”.
