Google finds friend in Trump amid European Union battle

It is likely to stoke tensions between Europe and the US, which regulates the tech industry with a lighter hand and has complained that the European Union is singling out American companies for punishment. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai and founding member of the Android team, Hiroshi Lockheimer, have been reluctant to commit to future plans for Fuchsia, according to the report, given that a re-vamp of the most popular operating system in the world could have massive ramifications for Google's core business as an advertising platform and its hardware partners.

It could stoke tensions between Europe and the US, which regulates the tech industry with a lighter hand.
