It's safe to say that President Trump is a vocal man. He speaks his mind and speaks out on issues he believes are unjust or unfair. Now, he is taking aim at one of the biggest brands in the world: Google.

"President Trump vowed to take action against Google early Tuesday morning in response to a report suggesting that the search engine's algorithm was suppressing conservative outlets' coverage of Trump. 'Google search results for 'Trump News' shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake New Media,' Trump tweeted. 'In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD,'" he wrote.

Critics, and even fans, are used to hearing the President criticize organizations for having a bias. He went on to address the fake news media.

"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," he continued. "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!"

Now, Google is responding to President Trump. They issued a statement and tried to assure Americans that they are not biased.

"When users type queries into the Google Search bar, our goal is to make sure they receive the most relevant answers in a matter of seconds," the statement reads. "Search is not used to set a political agenda and we don’t bias our results toward any political ideology. Every year, we issue hundreds of improvements to our algorithms to ensure they surface high-quality content in response to users’ queries. We continually work to improve Google Search and we never rank search results to manipulate political sentiment."
