President Donald Trump told Breitbart News during an Oval Office interview on Monday that big tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter are “100 percent” trying to control the flow of information to the American public.
“Yeah, 100 percent,” Trump said when asked if big tech companies like Google and others are trying to control what information people see.
That moment came after Breitbart News laid out for the president how Google has essentially turned off search traffic to the publication and other conservative news outlets for anything about his general election opponent former Vice President Joe Biden.
A Breitbart News investigation published in late July details how Google has radically diminished search traffic to conservative outlets like Breitbart News since the 2016 election.
“The tech companies are very dishonest about that and about free speech,” Trump told Breitbart News.
