The United States President Donald Trump has threatened to summon tech giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, claims they are extending political bias against the Republicans.
On Wednesday, in an interview with Fox Business Network, President Trump has confounded tech companies, claims that are “all Democrats” and their services are “totally biased toward Democrats,” reports source.
President Trump said, “Look, we should be suing Google and Facebook and all that, which perhaps we will, OK?”
The US President specifically took Twitter to the task.
“What they did to me on Twitter is incredible. I have millions and millions of followers, but I will tell you, they make it very hard for people to join me (on) Twitter and they make it very much harder for me to get out the message,” added President Trump.
He further accused Google for working on to avert “the next Trump situation.”
During the interview, President Trump said that Twitter “should be sued because what’s happening with the bias. Now you see it with that executive yesterday from Google. The hatred for the Republicans.”
A private video made by an orthodox group displays Jen Gennai, the Head of Responsible Innovation at Google, says that the tech giant is trying to stop another “Trump Situation” from happening again in 2020 Election.
In a serious warning to tech firms, the United States House Anti-Trust Committee has introduced investigation into Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and other tech firms to decide if they stop competition and hurt consumers.
The Department of Justice will reportedly handle Google and Apple while the United States Federal Trade Commission will take Amazon and Facebook.
A spokesman of Google has replied to President Trump’s exclamation against the tech giant, “We build our products with extraordinary care and safeguards to be a trustworthy source of information for everyone, without any regard for political viewpoint. Our rating guidelines are publicly visible for all to see.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, earlier, the FTC has restricted a probe of Google without taking steps but now the DOJ will take a look into Google’s practices in search and other areas.
