'They have it rigged!' The president takes aim at search engine results after googling 'Trump news'

President Donald Trump was up before dawn, apparently googling his own name -- and he wasn't happy with what he found.


The president sent out a pair of tweets at 5:24 and 5:34 a.m. complaining about search engine optimization, and then another from a Fox Business Network host praising him.

"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.

"(Ninety-six percent) of results on 'Trump News' are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous," he added. "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!"

He followed those 20 minutes later with a tweet quoting Lou Dobbs, a strongly pro-Trump Fox host.

"'President Trump has done more for minority groups in this country than any president in decades,'" the president quoted.
