President Donald Trump continues to put his own particularly conservative mark on U.S. politics, meeting this Wednesday at the White House with Google CEO Sundar Pichai as GOP outrage stewed over the company pursuing research projects and China and, supposedly, favoring liberal-leaning information sources, although there remains no evidence of the latter claim.

Trump put on an about-face following the meeting, recapping on Twitter:

‘Just met with Sundar Pichai, President of Google, who is obviously doing quite well. He stated strongly that he is totally committed to the U.S. Military, not the Chinese Military. Also discussed political fairness and various things that Google can do for our Country. Meeting ended very well!’

There was little further information immediately available about the contents of the meeting and how it went when the White House hosted a major tech industry player to air their questionably grounded — at best — grievances.

A Google spokesperson omitted the president’s reference to “political fairness” from their summary of the meeting, sharing that it covered “investing in the future of the American workforce, the growth of emerging technologies and our ongoing commitment to working with the U.S. government.”

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford has been among those leading the charge of criticism against Google for the company supposedly neglecting their relationship with the United States, although that’s been a theme throughout Trump’s own rhetoric as well. He has routinely called out companies he believes are in the wrong for growing their operations outside U.S. borders, sparing no words in mincing their public images, no matter the cost realities of the situation.

Trump has also repeatedly lambasted Google for supposedly favoring left-wing information sources — but when you dismiss the majority of the mainstream media as “fake news,” what do you think’s going to happen when you make a Google search? Does Trump think the information sources he doesn’t like are going to just go away because he uttered “fake news” like some kind of spell?

Although that’s an outlandish suggestion — the jury’s still out when it comes to its application to this guy.

Ironically, Trump isn’t the only political figure out there facing off with Google. Democratic U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) has unveiled a plan to break up big tech companies like the search engine-fueled giant, claiming they’re unfairly monopolizing the field.

The story of the companies’ relationship with the future of American politics is continuing to be written.
