Trump attacks European Union for fining Google ahead of Juncker visit

Donald Trump is Idiot on Google search Trump attacks European Union for fining Google ahead of Juncker visit

European regulators on Wednesday levied a record $5 billion antitrust fine against the company for using the mobile software to spread its services.

Once this was upvoted and links were published to other sites, Google's algorithm began to link the two and show the President's fizzog whenever someone searched for "idiot".

According to the European Commission, Google now must bring the conduct effectively so as it can end within 90 days or after that, it will face penalty payments which are up to 5 percent of the average daily worldwide turnover of the Alphabet, which is Google's parent company. Vestager's latest Google ruling should be just a first step, not an isolated attack on one US company for something others do, too. Moving away from Android will also likely take a long time, as many developers and device makers, including Samsung and LG rely on the OS, so Google will not be able to stop supporting it right away.

Mr Trump is engaged in a running dispute with the European Union over trade. The U.S. imposed tariffs on European Union steel and aluminum this year, and the European Union responded with duties on American goods.

"This is totally counterproductive". He is topping Google Images but not in a good way.

William Kovacic, a former chairman of the Federal Trade Commission who teaches at the George Washington University Law School, agreed it was unusual but not unheard of but was totally counterproductive.

Google would have to change a lot if it adopted a strategy, for example, more like Apple - which has a closed operating system - said Larry Downes, project director at the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy and a columnist for The Post's Innovations section. The deal closed in August 1997.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will meet with US President Donald Trump at the White House on 25 July in an attempt to fix the strained relations between the transatlantic allies.

While Google has said that it will appeal the decision saying that "Android has created more choice for everyone, not less".

The new sanction almost doubles the previous record European Union antitrust fine of 2.4 billion euros, which also targeted Google, in that case for the Silicon Valley titan's shopping comparison service in 2017.

Juncker said that during the G7 meeting in Canada on 10 June Trump called him "a brutal killer". The aim of the project is to overcome the limitations of Android-such as better accommodating security updates, voice interactions, and consistent screen displays-as users connect with more devices, the report noted. Google will probably continue to tinker with it for years to come, so don't expect a dramatic switch to happen any time soon.
