WASHINGTON — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump late Wednesday accused Google of manipulating search results in favour of rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump made the comment at a rally in Wisconsin, after mentioning a Google poll, which he said he was leading "despite the fact that Google’s search engine was suppressing the bad news about Hillary Clinton.

"The Google poll has us leading Hillary by two points nationwide," said Trump. "And that’s despite the fact that Google’s search engine was suppressing the bad news about Hillary Clinton, how about that? How about that?" Earlier, Google Trends said more people looked up Clinton’s name than Republican Donald Trump’s in all 50 states following Monday’s debate. Google added that Trump searches led in the majority of states before the debate.

The search giant explained that users looked up information on both candidates’ stances on immigration, abortion and guns most often while the debate was happening.

Many used Google to do their own fact-checking on the candidates’ claims. Google revealed the top fact check question for Trump revolved around his stance on the Iraq war. For Clinton, users wanted to follow-up on her statement that stop-and-frisk police tactics had been ruled unconstitutional.
