In one Monday morning interview on CNBC Squawk BoxTrump addressed a wide range of topics, with a particular focus on its tariff-based trade with China. But towards the end of the interview, the president provided us with nuggets about big tech companies such as Facebook and Huawei.
To start the debate, Trump resurrected the view that advanced technology is biased against him.
"People are talking about collusion, the real collusion is between the Democrats and these companies," Trump told a question about possible antitrust actions against Facebook, Amazon and Google. "They were against me in my race, everyone said," If you do not have them, you can not win. "Well I won, you know, and I will win again."
The anti-right bias has been a topic of debate in recent years, with Trump specifically calling on Twitter and Google to assume the removal of pro-Trump content. Last year, I claimed to the loss of Twitter followers Anti-Trump bias proved on the platform, even thought that the same phenomenon has done more damage to the number of followers of Barack Obama.
The president also accused Google of falsifying search results for the benefit of the left on similarly fragile premises. Google has deny thatall in Twitter admitted Trump is actually much longer than Twitter's average users.
Later in the interview, Trump addressed antitrust concerns with big tech companies such as Facebook and Amazon. Trump called on the European Union to "attack our businesses" via end of billions of dollars for anti-competitive practices.
However, I also think that they think that technology companies may be too big.
"They think that there is a monopoly, but I'm not sure that they really think it.They calculate this easy money," Trump said about EU practices. "I think it's a bad situation, but obviously there's something going on in terms of monopoly."
Finally, Trump closed his technical comments with some thoughts on Huawei and China in general. The Trump administration narrow Huawei's ability to do business in the United States earlier this year due to alleged national security concerns. Consequently, Google revoked the company's Android license for its range of smartphones.
Huawei has finally obtained temporary relief from the ban by the government, but Trump still sees it as a potential problem. He also sees this as a currency of exchange in his trade war with China.
"I see it as a threat," said Trump. "At the same time, it would be nice if we did something about Huawei in our trade negotiations with China."
Finally, Trump asked a question about the growing 5G mobile phone market in the United States. as an opportunity to claim the United States technological superiority over China.
"China, as great as it is, is great, they do not have the ability of our Silicon Valley geniuses to walk around in underwear and their value is $ 2 billion each," he said. Trump. "They do not have nearly the genius that these people have."
