After draining his brain on Fox ‘News,” Trump retweeted debunked research Robert Epstein presented to the Senate last month.
The Washington Post reports that Epstein’s research “suggested Google had given millions of votes to Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. A guest on Fox Business named Oz Sultan, who worked with Trump’s 2016 campaign, looped that claim back into the broader, ongoing criticism of social-media companies that’s currently in vogue among conservatives.”
Trump immediately took to Twitter to exaggerate Epstein’s testimony:
Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2019
Hillary Clinton responded to Trump’s tweet:
In the past, Trump has accused social media giants of rigging the system against conservatives.
