Donald Trump said Wednesday that social media and companies that search online, such as Twitter and Google, will try to unravel the elections in 2020 by setting their platforms against conservatives.
The president suggested that tech giants should be subjected to lawsuits and affected by new legislation, even now that the White House plans to hold a summit next month to try their executives.
His & # 39; take-no-prisoners & # 39; comments came after a right-wing group caught a Google manager on camera who recognized political bias and swore to & # 39; stop the next Trump situation & # 39 ;.
Google & Jen Gennai was filmed in a restaurant explaining that the company was trying to understand & # 39; what happened there and how we prevent it from happening again & # 39 ;.
President Donald Trump said Wednesday that Google and Twitter should be taken to court and blamed for drooling unfair political prejudices
Secret recordings show the head of Responsible Innovation from Google, Jen Gennai, which describes how the tech giant develops algorithms to prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected in 2020
Trump destroyed Google and Twitter in a Fox Business Network interview on Wednesday: & These people are all Democrats. It is completely biased towards Democrats. & # 39;
& # 39; Let me tell you that they are trying to tear up the election, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We should look at that, not the witch hunt, the false witch hunt that turned out to be zero. & # 39;
Trump has used that label for a long time to refer to an extensive Russia-related investigation that confirmed that his campaign was not conspiring with the Kremlin to win in 2016.
The president said he did not know if Google is violating laws by putting his thumb on the political ladder.
& # 39; But I tell you something, they must be prosecuted, & # 39; he said, referring to & that manager of Google yesterday, the hatred of the Republicans. & # 39;
& # 39; It doesn't even look like, & # 39; Gosh, let's lean Democrat, & he said. & # 39; The hate! And actually, you know, I heard all of that during my election. It's hard that I won. They flooded us with negative things. & # 39;
The president claimed in a Fox Business Network interview that Twitter is preventing people from following his popular account and that Big Tech & # 39; is biased toward Democrats & # 39;
The White House will host a group & # 39; digital leaders & # 39; received for a meeting, Trump spokesman Judd Deere said Wednesday morning.
The & # 39; Social Media Summit & # 39; will explore & # 39; strategic challenges of today's online environment. & # 39;
However, the president is no longer patient.
& # 39; Look, we have to sue Google and Facebook and so on, what we might be doing, & # 39; he said to Fox Business.
Trump said this month that regulators should consider criticizing technical companies for their status as monopolies.
And he claimed Wednesday that Twitter is building roadblocks to prevent people from following his account.
& # 39; I have millions and millions of followers but I tell you that they make it very difficult for people to come with me on Twitter & he said. & # 39; And they make it much harder for me to hear the message. & # 39;
& # 39; If I announce tomorrow that I am going to be a nice liberal democrat, I would pick up five times more followers, & # 39; he claimed.
& # 39; Twitter is just what they do, & # 39; said Trump. & # 39; They don't let you understand the word [off]. I have had so many people come to me: "Sir, I cannot join you on Twitter." I see what happens, 100 percent. & # 39;
& # 39; We were all sewn in 2016, & # 39; said Google Gennai on hidden camera images; & # 39; Again, it wasn't just us. It was, the people were sewn, the news media were sewn, as if everyone was sewn. So we have been fast, what happened there and how can we prevent it from happening again? & # 39;
Google has categorically denied that politics plays a role in the complex algorithms that determine what users see when they search for a term, although an undated graph published by Project Veritas and reportedly from internal Google documents seems to suggest otherwise
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Monday. the video from Project Veritas and wrote: & # 39; This is really scary if you think there are no prejudices from the social media that monitor this. If we don't act now, it will only get worse & # 39;
Veritas project released the secret images of Gennai, Head of Responsible Innovation at Google, with the words: & We were all sewn in 2016, again it wasn't just us, but the people got screwed, the news media got over like, everybody is sewn, so we went quickly, what happened there and how do we prevent it happening again. & # 39;
An insider from the company provided the conservative group of documents in which Google's explanation of & # 39; algorithmic dishonesty & # 39; was explained, which seemed to show a liberal tendency with the online giant.
A document leaked by the alleged insider contained a language about addressing & # 39; unfair or biased treatment & # 39; saying that even if the search results are factually correct, & # 39; it may be desirable to think about how we can achieve a fairer and fairer state in society through product intervention or broader corporate social responsibility efforts. & # 39;
Another document discusses enabling & # 39; product teams to make decisions about resource quality & # 39 ;.
