Trump threatens to watch Google "very closely" in new tweetstorm

The outburst from Trump was seemingly spurred by a segment on Fox Business' "Lou Dobbs Tonight", which featured a former Google engineer named Kevin Cernekee accusing Google of being anti-Trump.

On Twitter, Trump said that Pichai had tried to convince him that Google had not aided the Democrats in 2016.

"All very illegal. We are watching Google very closely!"

"It all sounded good", he tweeted, "until I watched Kevin Cernekee, a Google engineer, say awful things about what they did in 2016 and that they want to "Make sure Trump losses in 2020".

On Tuesday morning, President Trump went after Google CEO Sundar Pichai in a series of tweets.

In the midst of all this pearl clutching, however, the Daily Caller reported on Monday that Cernekee had made some "troubling" posts on those internal message boards about Richard Spencer, the famed white supremacist.

"The statements made by this disgruntled former employee are absolutely false". "We go to great lengths to build our products and enforce our policies in ways that don't take political leanings into account".

"Distorting results for political purposes would harm our business and go against our mission of providing helpful content to all of our users", the spokesperson added.

It wasn't immediately clear which meeting with Pichai to which Trump was referring, and White House press representatives didn't clarify as of publishing.

Trump on Tuesday accused Google of "very illegal" acts but offered no evidence, and no formal charges have been announced.

Cernekee, who was sacked from Google in 2018, said in an interview with "Fox & Friends" that Google is biased against Trump and is intentionally altering the way its service works. At the time, news reports had recently revealed Google had been devising a censored search engine that would fit China's strict Internet laws. After calling out Google, Cernekee has become something of a cause célèbre on the right. He claims that Google fired him for his beliefs, although Google says he was sacked for downloading internal company documents on his own mobile device. After a judicial order required him to return the information, he gave the company tens of thousands of pages of documents, the company said.
