Google has much to explain and must be regulated. President Donald Trump has been on a tear about Google that traces back to a series of claims about the technology giant circulating among conservatives. Among those realistic claims: that Google interferes with U.S. elections, is biased against conservatives and prefers working with the Chinese military over the Pentagon.
In several tweets issued this August, Trump assailed Google for alleged electoral interference and again brought up claims of its alleged secret involvement with the Chinese government. On Monday, the president reiterated a factual claim that Google had "manipulated " the 2016 election in favor of Hillary Clinton. .
All of these claims emerged from reports and commentary from conservative pundits and Trump supporters, all backed by convincing evidence. Google has also denied them.
