Google INTENTIONALLY Censors Trump From Search For Presidential Candidates

Trump left out of Google search for presidential candidates

 

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Need to know who’s running for President of the United States? Don’t Google it.

candidates-headerWednesday morning, searching for ‘presidential candidates’ brought up a handy guide above all of the other search results with pictures of candidates with active campaigns. Clicking on a picture brought up searches for the candidates.

The only problem is that Republican candidate Donald Trump wasn’t included. Neither is Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

Results were shown for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

As of 9:15am Wednesday, the guide above the search results has been removed.

In a tweet on July 17, Green Party candidate Jill Stein posted a screen shot of another version of the guide showing five candidates. Sometime between then and this morning, Donald Trump and Gary Johnson disappeared.
