Donald Trump said he is not the chief executive of Dow Chemical and Google.
Trump told the Wall Street Times, published Sunday, that he is the chief technical officer of Google, and he said he will be able to take decisions based on what he wants to do.
Trump is taking over a company that’s worth $30 billion and is struggling to keep its stock up.
He is also taking over the CEO role of Dow and Google’s parent company, Alphabet.
He has been critical of both companies in recent days and has suggested he wants a better relationship with them.
He also has been trying to get Google to release more information about the death of James H. Knight Jr., the former executive who became CEO of Google in 2018.
Knight’s death was a huge deal at the time because he had been in charge of Google for more than 20 years, and his sudden death came as he faced allegations that he and his associates manipulated search results in a bid to sell ads.
Knight has been cooperating with authorities and is expected to appear in court on Monday.
The president has also been talking to Alphabet and Google about his plans for the company.
