President Trump tweeted Monday morning that Google parent Alphabet should be “sued” for artificially inflating the number of Hillary Clinton supporters from 2.6 million to 16 million – though he doesn’t offer much context for the information.
Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought! @JudicialWatch

The Tweet took some of the wind out of Alphabet’s sails on a day where markets were broadly recovering.
