US President Donald Trump has launched an attack on search engine Google, claiming it is rigging search results to make him look bad.
In a flurry of Tuesday tweets, Mr Trump claims 96 percent of results are from left wing media and questions the legality of it.

"Google search results for "Trump News" shows only the viewing/reporting of Fake News Media. In other words, they have it RIGGED, for me & others, so that almost all stories & news is BAD. Fake CNN is prominent. Republican/Conservative and Fair Media is shut out. Illegal?" Mr Trump tweeted.
"96% of results on "Trump News" are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous. Google & others are supressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good. They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation-will be addressed!" He followed up in a second tweet.
Google has yet to comment on Mr Trump's allegations.
The search engine decides the order of articles that appear in a search through the use of an algorithm that only Google itself knows.
Previous browsing and search history can also influence the display of search results.
