Google is denying President Donald Trump's claim that it's working with the Chinese military. Trump tweeted Saturday that Google is helping China and their military but not the U.S., and called it "terrible." Google quickly responded, and denied the claim. A spokesperson for the company said it's working with the U.S. government, including with the Department of Defense, in many areas including cybersecurity, recruiting and healthcare. Earlier this week, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that the work Google is doing in China is indirectly benefiting the Chinese military.
