A leaked Google video published by right-leaning publication Breitbart shows why Donald Trump might have a point about being hated by the tech behemoth.

Donald Trump had earlier claimed that the popular search engine was suppressing favorable stories about him in exchange for more unfavorable stories in a bid to mold the narrative.

The tech Giant denied this, stating that they have in no way tampered with the algorithm to discredit Trump.

However, the video leaked by Breitbart, which was of Google’s first all-hands meeting following the 2016 presidential election, showed top execs of the company complaining bitterly about the Trump win.

Co-founder Sergey Brin who took to the stage first was very critical of Trump’s win and even mentioned that it was a win that went against ‘our values’

Brin who identifies as an immigrant has always been outspoken about his views on Trump and his policies and from the video it could be seen that the executives were in a pretty somber mood.

Google has reacted to this leak, however, saying that at the meeting, everyone aired their personal views but that this does not in any way affect the way they operate or cause them to act with bias towards any particular agenda.

According to ABC, Google in a statement said: “At a regularly scheduled all hands meeting, some Google employees and executives expressed their own personal views in the aftermath of a long and divisive election season. For over 20 years, everyone at Google has been able to freely express their opinions at these meetings,” a Google spokesperson said. “Nothing was said at that meeting, or any other meeting, to suggest that any political bias ever influences the way we build or operate our products.”

Like everything on there internet, there’s usually a little more nuance to things. The meeting was over an hour long and everyone had a bit of a say. The video has been embedded below.
