Donald Trump took aim at Google on Friday afternoon after a viral video claimed to show the web giant’s autocomplete search function manipulated results to favor Hillary Clinton.

“If this is true, it is a disgrace that Google would do that,” Trump wrote in a statement sent to Business Insider by his campaign. “Very, very dishonest.”

“They should let it float and allow people [to] see how crooked she really is,” he continued.

The video, created by SourceFed, showed multiple autocomplete search results for “Hillary Clinton” that it claimed proved that Google “has been actively altering search recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
