Trump: Google hides Hillary

By Simon Sharwood, 30 Sep 2016

Republican candidate for the United States presidency Donald Trump has added Google to the list of organisations it thinks is undermining him.

At a rally on Wednesday night, Trump said he's doing very well in recent opinion polls but that's “Despite the fact Google search engine was suppressing the bad news about Hillary Clinton. How about that. How about that.”

Google has refuted the allegation.

Trump's made similar allegations in the past, backing suggestions Google directs searches for “Hillary Clinton Cri...” to “Hillary Clinton Crime Reform” instead of Hillary Clinton Crimes.”

Trump believes Clinton's use of a personal email server was a criminal act, despite official investigations rejecting that analysis. ®
