Donald Trump took aim at Google on Friday afternoon after a viral video claimed to show the web giant’s autocomplete search function manipulated results to favour Hillary Clinton.
“If this is true, it is a disgrace that Google would do that,” Trump wrote in a statement sent to Business Insider by his campaign. “Very, very dishonest.”
In a statement Friday, Google emphatically rejected that its autocomplete function was biased toward any candidate. Rather, each site simply uses a different algorithm than the others.
