Donald Trump has accused Google of rigging its search results to show only bad news stories about him.

The President unloaded on the tech firm in a pair of tweets on Tuesday morning which promised to ‘address’ the ‘very serious situation’.

Trump wrote: ‘Google search results for “Trump News” shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media.

‘In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent.

‘Republican/Conservative & Fair Media is shut out. Illegal? 96% of results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous.

‘Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see.

‘This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!’

Google uses a complex algorithm to decide what results users are presented with, though its exact workings remain a closely guarded corporate secret.

We do know that a user’s search history will affect the results, so it is possible that Trump’s focus on negative stories about himself skewed his search.

However, other right-wing figures have been arguing for months that their voices are being silenced online by the likes of Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube.

Conservative bloggers Diamond and Silk accused Facebook of censoring their message after noticing dwindling audience figures earlier this year.

Since then there have been two Congressional hearings about the issue, with tech companies repeatedly denying that they promote or demote content based on its political content.

Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress over election meddling was also peppered with questions about the suppression of conservative voices.

Earlier this month Alex Jones’s Infowars program was removed from all platforms with the exception of Twitter for promoting hate speech and conspiracy theories.
