President Donald Trump has said that Google is totally committed to the US military as he met the internet giant's CEO Sunder Pichai at the White House.
- Donald Trump has said that Google is totally committed to the US military
- After a meeting with Pichai, the US President informed about the same on Twitter
- There was no immediate tweet from Sundar Pichai.
"Just met with @SundarPichai, President of @Google, who is obviously doing quite well," he said. Pichai "stated strongly that he is totally committed to the US military and not the Chinese military", Trump said. "Also discussed political fairness and various things that @Google can do for our country. Meeting ended very well!" said the President. There was no immediate tweet from Pichai.
However, a Google spokesperson said that the company is pleased to have productive conversations with the President. "We were pleased to have productive conversations with the President about investing in the future of the American workforce, the growth of emerging technologies and our ongoing commitment to working with the US government," said the Google spokesperson.
Trump's tweet criticising Google earlier last month came after Acting Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan and General Joseph Dunford, chairman joint chiefs of staff, said during a Congressional hearing that "Google was partnering with China... but the Internet search engine giant has shown a lack of willingness to work with the US Department of Defence".
During his trip to Washington DC, Pichai also met India's Ambassador to the US Harsh V Shringla. "A thoroughly enriching experience to meet and interact with" Pichai on Google's positive engagement in India and elsewhere in the world, privacy laws, internet governance and a host of other issues, the ambassador said in a tweet.
