President Donald Trump slammed the media during a press conference on Sunday after many left-wing journalists falsely reported that Google was not building a national website to track the spread of the coronavirus.

“I want to thank the people at Google and Google Communications because, as you know, they substantiated what I said on Friday,” Trump said. “The head of Google, who’s a great gentleman, called us and he apologized, I don’t know where the press got their fake news but they got it some place.”

Trump then held up a sheet of paper that showed a series of tweets that were put out by Google Communications that backed up what Trump initially said.

“But as you know, this is from Google, they put out a release,” Trump said as he flicked the paper. “And you guys can figure it out yourselves and how that got out and I’m sure you’ll apologize, but it would be great if we could really give the news correctly. It would be so, so, wonderful.”
