Google has firmly denied allegations made in pre-dawn tweets by President Donald Trump that the tech-giant skewed search results against him and other conservative figures.
Trump, apparently, is the spread of a theory put forward at the weekend by a conservative blog, claimed that 96% of results for the term “Trump News to” produce messages from the outlets with the label “National Left-wing Media.” He called it a “very serious situation” that will have to be addressed.”
In a statement on Deadline, a Google spokesman rejected the president’s claims.
When users type queries in the search bar of Google, our goal is to ensure that they receive the most relevant answers in a matter of seconds,” the statement said. “Search is not used for a political agenda, and we are not bias our results in the direction of a political ideology. Each year, we give hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure that they get the surface of high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results, to manipulate political sentiment.”

Trump has a push-pull relationship with major tech companies, the inviting of the various moguls at a White House schmooze session in 2017, while also maintaining a feud with Amazon.
Last week he complained that social media companies are silencing millions of people despite abundant evidence that Facebook (and the influence by international troops), helped him be elected. Twitter also has a daily refuge.
The Twitter attack comes barely a month after Trump publicly supported Google, hammering the European Union for the imposition of fines Google a record $5 billion fine on the operating system for mobile phones. At that time, he praised Google as one of America’s great companies.
