Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday that the three technology companies "are treading on very, very troubled territory", as he added his voice to a growing chorus of conservatives who claim internet companies favour liberal viewpoints.
“This is a very serious situation - will be addressed!” Trump said in a tweet earlier on Tuesday. The President’s comments came the morning after a Fox Business TV segment that said Google favoured liberal news outlets in search results about Trump. Trump provided no substantiation for his claim.
"Google search results for 'Trump News' shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD," Trump said. "Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal."
