Mike Pence is Donald Trump’s right hand man. He is the vice president and with that, he has a lot of power. Sure, he does not have the same influence or power that the President does, but he is influential in his own right. With that being said, Pence thinks that Google is fighting a losing battle with their attempts to enter China. China does not want Google within its country and that will not change.
- VP Mike Pence did not hesitate to call out search giant, Google, when he called on that company to end its work on a search engine for China.
- Google’s search engine project, the Dragonfly, aims to produce a search engine app that favors Chinese censoring of media and sites.
- VP Mike Pence also called China out by claiming it is undermining the US political system by interfering in the 2018 midterm elections.
“Google drama aside, Pence’s tough talk on China might be politically expedient bluster, but it’s not without irony: The Trump administration has repeatedly expressed its outright contempt for a free press, a hallmark of an aggressively restrictive government like China.”
