President Trump tweeted Tuesday that his administration “will take a look” at billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel’s statement over the weekend that Google should be federally investigated for allegedly aiding the Chinese military.
“Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?
“Number two, does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?
“Billionaire Tech Investor Peter Thiel believes Google should be investigated for treason. He accuses Google of working with the Chinese Government.” @foxandfriends A great and brilliant guy who knows this subject better than anyone! The Trump Administration will take a look!
