Trump left out of Google search for presidential candidates


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Need to know who’s running for President of the United States? Don’t Google it.

Searching for ‘presidential candidates’ brings up a handy guide above all of the other search results with pictures of candidates with active campaigns. Clicking on a picture brings up searches for the candidates.

The only problem is that Republican candidate Donald Trump isn’t included. Neither is Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.

Results are shown for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

There results were unchanged at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Since then, the site removed the widget listing candidates.

In a tweet on July 17, Green Party candidate Jill Stein posted a screen shot of another version of the guide showing five candidates. Sometime between then and this morning, Donald Trump and Gary Johnson disappeared.

However, this is not the first time Google and Trump have had conflict. In June, the Republican nominee claimed the site’s autocomplete search function favored Clinton, according to Business Insider. Google said the function is not biased, but uses an unique algorithm.Related:Sanders loyalists warn of party split after Clinton victory
