President Trump on Wednesday revealed he had met with Google CEO Sundar Pichai to discuss the company's work in China and allegations of anti-conservative bias.
 
The president said on Twitter that the unscheduled meeting went "very well" following months of Republican attacks against Silicon Valley over how social media companies handle conservative speech.
 
"Just met with @SundarPichai, President of @Google, who is obviously doing quite well. He stated strongly that he is totally committed to the U.S. Military, not the Chinese Military," Trump wrote. "Also discussed political fairness and various things that @Google can do for our Country. Meeting ended very well!"
 
When asked for comment, a spokesperson for Google sent The Hill a statement that called the meeting "productive" but made no mention of any discussions about political speech that the president had alluded to in his tweet.
 
"We were pleased to have productive conversations with the President about investing in the future of the American workforce, the growth of emerging technologies and our ongoing commitment to working with the U.S. government," the statement read.
