President Trump slammed Google on Tuesday morning in a three-part tweetstorm over allegations by a former engineer that the company will do everything they can to make sure he doesn't win again in 2020.
Trump explained how CEO Sundar Pichai "was in the Oval Office working very hard to explain how much he liked me, what a great job the Administration is doing, that Google was not involved with China’s military, that they didn’t help Crooked Hillary over me in the 2016 Election, and that they are NOT planning to illegally subvert the 2020 Election despite all that has been said to the contrary."
"It all sounded good until I watched Kevin Cernekee, a Google engineer, say terrible things about what they did in 2016 and that they want to “Make sure that Trump losses [sic] in 2020," Trump continued.

"Lou Dobbs stated that this is a fraud on the American public, Trump continued. @peterschweizer stated with certainty that they suppressed negative stories on Hillary Clinton, and boosted negative stories on Donald Ttump [sic]. All very illegal. We are watching Google very closely!"
On Monday night, Trump tweeted a clip of former Google engineer Kevin Cernekee explaining how the company was distrought after Trump won in 2016 - "Google executives went up on a stage right away and cried - tears literally streaming right down their faces over the fact that President Trump won. They vowed that it would never happen again, and they want to use all the power and all the resources they have to control the flow of information to the public and make sure that Trump loses in 2020.
Trump then tweeted an interview with investigative journalist Peter Schweizer, who explained that Google suppressed negative stories about Hillary Clinton and boosted negative stories about Trump. He added that in 2016, Google thought Trump would lose and didn't need to tip the scales as much. In 2020, they'll "go all in," according to Schweizer.
In June, Google's head of "Responsible Innovation," Jen Gennai, was caught on an undercover video (which Google's YouTube has deleted) admitting that the company is programming its machine learning algorithms in order to avoid the "next Trump situation."
"We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, what happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again," said Gennai.
Project Veritas is RIDING A WAVE. A movement for transparency from big tech companies who engage in privacy violations, political censorship, and other data abuses.

Gennai responded, saying in a Medium post that she had been taken out of context.
Not only is she not denying it, the Google Executive actually just stated, “I was having a casual chat with someone at a restaurant and used some imprecise language. Project Veritas got me. Well done.” Seethread with @cwarzel of NYT for extreme rationalizations for non coverage. https://t.co/UHb6LjkbA9— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) June 25, 2019
That said, a Google insider came forward to Veritas, confirming what they filmed Gennai admitting; that the company is using "Machine Learning Fairness" as just one of several political tools used to promote their political agenda by combating "algorithmic unfairness."
Sundar Pichai says told Trump that none of this is happening, however - so it must be true!
