Trump alleges Google manipulated voters against him – Citing conspiracy group

Share:

President Trump alleged Monday that Google manipulated millions of voters into supporting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, saying the company “should be sued” in his latest allegation against the tech giant.

The president in a tweet referenced the work of a controversial psychologist who has claimed to have found evidence that Google’s search algorithms have been influencing voters.

Although President Trump references the conspiracy website Judicial Watch, we cannot find a record of them reporting this. Perhaps he is implying Judicial Watch should sue Google?

Trump appears to be referring to the work of Robert Epstein, a researcher with a group based in Vista, Calif., called the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. Epstein testified in a Senate hearing in June about what he calls the “Search Engine Manipulation Effect” and claimed that his research shows Google’s search results pushed at least 2.6 milllion people to vote for Clinton in 2016.

In 2017, Google dismissed Robert Epstein’s research as “nothing more than a poorly constructed conspiracy theory.”
