White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Tuesday that the Trump administration is “taking a look” at imposing regulations on Google following the president’s tweet Tuesday morning accusing the search giant of favoring news outlets critical of him in search results.
Trump tweeted early Tuesday morning that Google’s search results only show reporting from what he labeled the “fake news media.” Kudlow was asked Tuesday during a brief exchange with reporters whether the Trump administration feels that “there needs to be some form of regulation for Google.”
“We’ll let you know. We’re taking a look at it,” Kudlow replied as he walked back into the White House after a TV interview with Fox News.
